“They’re paying all these boats to run around like headless chickens,” Taylor said, as reporters gathered to hear his assessment of the Sound.
In the case of a hurricane hitting the 250-mile wide slick and pushing it over sand dunes and into beach towns, residents fear they’ll face not only mass evacuations, but potential permanent relocation.
Weather forecasters had earlier said the storm by next week could head for the site of the huge oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico unleashed by the April 20 explosion of the BP-leased Deepwater Horizon rig.
It was treated as an oddball twist in the otherwise wrenching saga of the BP oil spill when Kevin Costner stepped forward to promote a device he said could work wonders in containing the spill's damage. Marks a major breakthrough in spill cleanup tec
The state of affairs in the Gulf region is on the path to all out chaos and Martial Law. The anarchy may reach levels orders of magnitude higher than that of Katrina.
"We're going to have to evacuate the gulf states," said Matt Simmons, founder of Simmons and Co., the unflagging source of end-of-the-world predictions. "Can you imagine evacuating 20 million people? . . . This story is 80 times worse than I thought.
A leaky truck filled with oil-stained sand and absorbent boom soaked in crude pulls away from the beach, leaving tar balls in a public parking lot and a messy trail of sand and water on the main beach road. A few miles away, brown liquid drips out of
It may be a prank -- or it may be raining oil in Louisiana. A videotape posted on the Russia Today news site shows an amateur cameraman filming oil-slicked streets in River Ridge, a suburb of New Orleans.
"It looks like we are facing an endless destruction of our, of our area here in North America. This is going to keep going and going and going, it looks like."
A cap was back in place on BP's broken oil well in the Gulf of Mexico after a deep-sea blunder forced crews to temporarily remove what has been the most effective method so far for containing some of the massive spill.
Video. Biologists told ABC News that the entire food chain had been disrupted -- partly from the mass of oil and partly because the oil has sapped the water of oxygen. "What we're really witnessing may be a shift in the whole ecosystem feeding...
As much as 1 million times the normal level of methane gas has been found in some regions near the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, enough to potentially deplete oxygen and create a dead zone, U.S. scientists said on Tuesday.
All along the water line this morning, tar has been washing ashore. You can see it in the surf – it is all over the beach. It is sticky, brown and running in lines all along the waterline, in front of the hotels and near Pensacola’s famous fishing...
Russia Today has filmed Louisiana residents who insist it is raining oil on their town. The reports shows puddles with an oily shine and claims there is an oily smell.
The containment cap was removed after collision with an underwater robot. The flow has increased wildly, as you can see in the live cam.
Nightmare scenarios regarding the underwater oil have been proposed by various scientists. Oil plumes could increase the methane level to poisonous levels. Oil plumes might even increase ocean pressure and cause tsunamis.
It has been estimated by experts that the pressure which blows the oil into the Gulf waters is estimated to be between 20,000 and 70,000 PSI (pounds per square inch). Impossible to control. What US Scientists Are Forbidden To Tell The Public A
Disturbing evidence is mounting that something frightening is happening deep under the waters of the Gulf of Mexico—something far worse than the BP oil gusher. Warnings were raised as long as a year before the Deepwater Horizon disaster that the a
Nothing brings people together like a disaster, right? Wrong. America has turned down help from around 30 countries and international organizations.
Oil industry expert Matthew Simmons also puts the number above one billion barrels (see this Bloomberg interview, for example, where he says that - unless stopped - 120,000 barrels a day will leak for 25-30 years...
The disaster in the Gulf continues as BP's efforts at containment keep hitting snags. Many criticize the government for not doing enough. The reality is there is only so much government can do to help, yet a lot they can do to prolong the problem.
"This is the most vigorous methane eruption in modern human history," said John Kessler, a Texas A&M University oceanographer.
Congressman Ed Markey has released an internal BP doc that shows that under certain scenarios, the flow from the leaking wellhead could hit 200K.
Bil Ryan , of Project Camelot/Avalon discusses the latest on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill with Dr Bill Deagle.

Where’s Obama going for advice on the Gulf oil disaster? There’s a compilation from the RNC that makes the case that Obama’s actions mirror cues from the media. There’s also evidence that the president is listening to the Center for American Progress
Some say there’s little doubt that if a spill like the one in the Gulf took place on former President George W. Bush’s watch, environmental groups would have unleashed an unsparing fury on the Republican in the White House.
The reasons for the horrific-filled reactions to the gulf oil incident stem partly from news coverage, replete with images of oil-soaked pelicans, but a deeper psychological factor is also at work.
The Obama administration doubled its minimum estimate of how much crude oil was gushing from the Deepwater Horizon oil well, saying a panel of scientists had concluded that 20,000 to 50,000 barrels, or as much as 2.1 million gallons, were pouring int
