What could possibly go wrong when miners, frackers, and drillers reshape the geology beneath our feet? Talk to the evacuees of Bayou Corne, Louisiana.

[snip] ” . . .  Ignorance, willful or otherwise, is inextricable from what happened in Bayou Corne. Not only do Louisiana regulators have a poor grasp on how miners may be disturbing subsurface geology, they also have a pretty vague sense of how many caverns are located close to the outer ring of salt domes. In January, the Department of Natural Resources ordered companies with salt caverns to provide their most recently updated maps, and the agency is working on rules that would require additional modeling of the 29 caverns that are within 300 feet of an edge. And the agency is proposing regulations mandating that caverns be shut down and monitored for five years, rather than simply plugged and abandoned, if they fail a mechanical integrity test.

  1. This is number three i send this and you took it off.
    This is going to happen not maybe this year 2013.

    Something big is about to happen on the sun.
    Magnetic Field Reversal on the Sun.
    It hasn’t happened yet, but it’s about to the sun’s global magnetic field will flip before the end of 2013.
    The reversal, which signals the arrival of Solar Maximum, will have ripple effects felt throughout the solar system.

    • I did not remove any of yr messages. It is WordPress blocking you.
      The sun thing is on many news sites today. It should have negligible effects here.

      • Magnetic Field Reversal on the Sun ripple effects
        It well be quite interesting to watch this happen, it well weaken the earth magnetic field here on earth the sun’s magnetic field well weaken as well.
        No need for a tin foil hat
        The earth’s magnetic poles well not switch.
        Maunder Minimum, could bring on a Little Ice Age.
        As the sun’s magnetic field weakens, it gets ‘wavy’ and the earth passes through more flux lines than usual.
        Well it make you grow older sooner in life ?
        It global cooling we need to tax ever one.

    • It happens every 11 years or so, right? Fairly normal…..btw, flying cuttle fish, something appears to be going on wih the site or at least comment section…replys don’t appear…even this one may be a duplicate….

      • Allll of yr comments got sidelined into the SPAM bin … spam
        it is WordPress doing this to mess with this site. Not me. sorrryyy….

      • They probably realised that the ‘silent’ treatment wasn’t working, so they’re trying to bury us in a S**t-storm of updates, probably so that they can hide things easier in among the information, camouflaged by all the crud.

        At this rate we’ll be getting daily reports of how many toilet-rolls where used each day, and by whom.

        Of course if the toilet-roll usage suddenly goes up, we’ll know that something BIG just happened, in more ways than one ;).

      • I feel this info flurry from the Parish is because of their feud with Texas Brine (depth dispute). I think there is a legal reason for the info. The Parish blog is the auto informer for many state agencies who may be party to lawsuit(s) against Tex Brine & Oxy.
        Paper trail.
