ENE-News – Mistake at Congressional Hearing? Senator: “Radioactive releases from WIPP have been at levels that are a public health danger” — EPA: “This is a big deal” (VIDEO) < article mentions Mining Awareness :)

ENE-News - AP: Crews retreat after nuclear material found at WIPP — Officials: Correct to turn back, contamination was increasing — Robots brought to site for radiation levels too high for humans — ‘Significant amount of information’ will be revealed to public in next few days (VIDEOS)

A quote from Mining Awareness (scroll half way down):

While Farok Sharif of WIPP getting demoted appears good news on the surface, we must examine what he did at WIPP. He orchestrated a speed-up of moving radioactive waste. On the Nuclear Waste Partnership LLC web site it is still proudly proclaimed that Farok helped WIPP to “ramp up” from processing one to two waste shipments per week to more than 30 per week. His background is a BA in “Production and Operations Research Management” and a MBA from New Mexico State University.

Gloomy Wednesday: A Large Twang at 5:13 A.M. + Methane Doom Prediction

Not on all the helicorders but very large at LA17-01. That is on the north side of Lake FUBAR.

Globe will very soon turn into a hot ball like Venus due to Arctic methane seep says scientist Guy McPherson.

Big Oil’s loosening grip

For generations, our politicians assumed that what was good for the oil and gas industry was good for Louisiana. As long as nobody looked too closely at what was happening in our coastal wetlands, few questioned that assumption. . . .

A Strum at LA18, Then a Big Twang in the Night & Sun. & Mon. News

A strum on some of the helicorders at 4:40 a.m..  It showed best at LA18. Also on LA12 and LA19 but it didn’t register on the others.  12 & 19 are near the butane caverns.

UPDATE SUNDAY NIGHT

At 10 P.M. something big happened at Lake FUBAR.

It looked like this (LA18)    LA12tenPM

- but didn’t show on all the helicorders (so it wasn’t caused by a far away earthquake). LA10-03 (bottom borehole) showed activity at 10 p.m.

  . . .  due to “low pressure”. Low Pressure? What about when they give away the farm and divert all that aquifer’s water to the oil and gas Bozos??

We have this idea about oil source being quite different than what is in the encyclopedia – Abiotic Oil. And the idea isn’t entire hooey as US New and World Report did a story on it: Abiotic Oil a Theory Worth Exploring – Oil may not be formed the way we think it is.

By the way, although some (unknown amount)  of rad waste is stored at the collapsed and roof-caved-in cavern, Oxy 3 at Bayou Corne it turns out a LOT of similar waste is just dumped by the roadside. It gets dumped along US roadways and byways because crooked haulers can’t be bothered with fines now that lots more radiation detection gizmos are installed at legitimate dump sites.
