Those Nutty Conspiracy Theories

Stephen Sabludowsky  at the Bayou Buzz - Busy Jindal: derailment, ammonia plant and sinkhole paradise

[snip] ” . . .  Jindal skipped a meeting of the national governors but did manage to attend another campaign stop outside the state before he preached in New Orleans to a Red State website event along with other GOP hopefuls.
But, did he make it to Lake Jindal on the one year sinkhole disaster anniversary, held this weekend?
Nope.

Unusual seismic activity this morning. NOW LA12 is off line(!). LA17 shows FLUID MOVEMENT. Hang on . . . . heli_button

1 Year Plus . . . Monday News

Seismic activity went way up yesterday at LA12 just after noon. Then today the helicorder went off line. LA14 did the same yesterday but is working today and looks calm. LA11 did the same. The others look calm yesterday and today.

UPDATE- 7 p.m. CST – Many Seismos going off. Large seismic activity late in the day.

LA15 has been broken down since Aug. 1st.

Since it took Gov. Piyush “Bobby” Jindal 7 months to bother to visit the giant disaster, caused in great part by state agencies granting permit after permit to over-drilled Assumption Parish players.  That means he may dawdle by next February or March (2014) to see what happened at the one year anniversary.

No government agency heads in Louisiana bothered to attend the community meeting this weekend.

There is

  • NO Science Committee 1 year evaluation
  • NO statement by Texas Brine
  • NO statement by cavern owner, Occidental Petroleum
  • NO press release from Jindal’s office
  • NO CBI 1 year summary
  • NO Blue Ribbon “path forward” blueprint blah, blah  put out on the 1 year mark – even if it a bunch of B.S.
  • NO cessation of seismic activity, oily leaks, gas build-up from Lake FUBAR

Chemical Train Wreck N.W. from Lake FUBAR

New Orleans Times-PicayuneDerailed train in Louisiana carrying highly toxic substances, Jindal says

“. . . three cars were leaking as of late Sunday. One is leaking lubricant oil while a second is leaking Dodecanol, a tasteless, colorless alcohol that can cause mild skin irritation. The third, however, is carrying a highly corrosive substance called caustic soda, or lye. Two other cars containing a highly toxic, flammable, and carcinogenic substance called vinyl chloride monomer have damage to their exteriors but no signs yet of apparent leaks. . . “

“Of the 23 cars that derailed Sunday, 14 contained “regulated substances” that are harmful or toxic.”

It is northwest from Lake FUBAR along I-90,  60 miles west of Baton Rouge.

Things already look peculiar!
Excerpt:
Espinoza said the railroad ties were renewed in 2011 and the track was inspected about three hours before the accident.

MONDAY NEWS

LA12 is quite a bit worse today!

2013_LA12_May27Terrific seismic activity. It is not just “micro-quakes” as Texas Brine claims. And they have another deceptive “explanation” about “bulking” in the cavern in this article:

The AdvocateRock to sinkhole ratio a mystery 

David J. Mitchell – “One of the lingering questions surrounding the Assumption Parish sinkhole — raised last fall when fears of more sinkholes emerged — remains an issue of too much rock.”

“. . . . As the sinkhole has grown over the last nine months and as the 2,258-foot-tall cavern continued to fill with rock and sediment— at a rate of three feet per day.”
