Tuesday News

A reader sent a message.  This person is looking for pressure-in-the-cavern  information from before and when they failed that MIT long ago.

So they plugged a leaking cavern like you should only plug a fully intact cavern in the middle of a salt dome and without finding out where  the leak was (the Vertical seismic profile done end of September 2010 can be interpreted that it’s somewhere below 3400 ft)

Some “missing” documents may turn up in the lawsuits that will start up.

Speaking of lawsuits …. Freedomrox has a new article on who is liable for the cavern collapse (who owns it).

Another lawsuit – Environmental groups sue Coast Guard

Several environmental groups Tuesday filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Coast Guard challenging a denial of two Freedom of Information Act requests from the groups about response to an oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.

The groups, through the Tulane Environmental Law Clinic, filed a complaint in U.S. District Court, District of Columbia, asking the court to force the Coast Guard to release information requested in 2011 about leaking wells 11 miles from Louisiana’s coast that were damaged in 2004 during an underwater landslide.

In a separate action, the groups filed a lawsuit against Taylor Energy Co. LLC of New Orleans in February 2012 alleging there were up to 28 wells that continued to leak oil. . . .


Bayou Buzz – Louisiana Governor Jindal hides within his political sinkhole

“Ironically, while Jindal has refused to visit Bayou Corne, environmental activist Erin Brockovich will be making a visit this weekend. It is pretty embarrassing that Brockovich can travel thousands of miles to see the sinkhole, yet the Governor cannot travel a few miles from his mansion in Baton Rouge.”

      • It looks crazy on the helicorders. Same type of readings back when there was a large enlargement of the sinkhole. I don’t recall the date. Too much stuff in my head at one time 😉 Residents said earlier that there were no trucks or police there during the afternoon.

      • it’s massing for another attack … like in The Birds!

        Freedomrox knows how to read those signs.

  1. Even the bottom borehole #03 reading is showing activity and it shouldn’t be effected by trucks or traffic.

    It remind me of the Foxfire students as they looked deeply into their families, their community, and their heritage.
    It started out to help the kids to learn in school there Southern Appalachian heritage as a magazine.
    For over 40 years, high school students in Foxfire programs have helped to gather and publish information about their Southern Appalachian heritage.
    From there it became a book name Foxfire 1# I think they got 12 foxfire books out now.

    Before the first foxfire came out I was in NC helping to build that Log Cabin they have in first Foxfire book and the fireplace a lot of handwork and stone work.
    I didn’t get pay for that I work in the sawmill as well I learn a lot.

      • oh, tell me. I worked in a bike shop and to do that you have to occasionally change a tire. It is just a thing you must know if you do that activity.
        Nowadays, I’d say the majority of adult customers cannot change a tire or know how to use tire levers.
        There is US how-to dumb-down that is a big threat to getting along if any minor or major emergency cuts off transportation or electricity anywhere.
