A few weeks ago I received some information that advanced the theory that the BP oil leak is actually an oil volcano, and that attempts to seal the leak would fail. It appears that the theory may be correct after watching some side by side videos and images.
The BP oil leak on 5.23.2010. Notice the white plume next to the black plume.
An AP video from 5.20.2010 which shows the white plume in the background and what appears to be volcanic ejecta floating down.
Now, video of an underwater volcano “erupting from NOAA’s Submarine Ring of Fire expeditions.” 3.20.2009
So exactly how screwed are we today? I’m so glad that Obama and one of his biggest campaign contributors are handling this crisis. We should be hearing the truth any minute now. (snark)
