The World’s Most Dangerous Dams With Spectacular Possiblities From Our Planners Hovering Above Nuclear Plants

This is for Walter ….

“This will not be reported on major news channels, however  Lake Strom Thurmond, also known as Clarks Hill Lake in Georgia, is a reservoir at the border between Georgia and South Carolina in the Savannah River Basin. It was built between 1946 and 1954 by the Army Corps of Engineers at the confluence of the Little River and Savannah River. At 71,000 acres (287 km²), it is the 2nd largest artificial lake east of the Mississippi River. It was a shallow quake about 3 miles deep (the worst kind as far as damage goes). And it is reported to be 5.4, not 4.4 in magnitude. Make no mistake about it, failure of the Strom Thurmond Dam will place the Savannah River Power plant under a tidal wave and obliterate it.”

Bended Reality – Scientists Found a 1,700 Mile Crack Across the USA. Here’s What You Need to Know

LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) – In Nov 1981, a study was published that rocked the scientific world, and sparked concern in FEMA circles, in which a 1,700 mile “Crack Across America” was discovered. Worse yet, this crack cuts through the New Madrid Seismic Zone, where in 1811 and 1812 three giant earthquakes devastatingly struck the center of America. Scientists have been struggling, since then, to answer the question of what risk this mega feature may pose to our heartland today. Recently, and less known, is a study from an independent geologic research set of work [2], that has identified a possible second “Crack Through America” that crosses into and through the same volatile New Madrid Seismic Zone. . .  (more)

The Advocate Assumption jurors say no to sinkhole discharge into Grand Bayou, citing environmental concerns, but state officials worried about catastrophic levee failure

“. . . . Tom Killeen, DEQ Inspection Division administrator, described the implications of a catastrophic levee failure: As much as 150 million gallons of sinkhole water — possibly mixed with saltier water from the sinkhole’s depths — would rush into the swamp if a breach allowed up to 3 feet of water to flow out.

The primary bowl of the sinkhole is about 31 acres, but the series of containment levees cut through the swamps south of La. 70 contain a total of 117 acres, Texas Brine has said. . .  “

 “In the June 3 letter to DEQ, Martin, the Texas Brine vice president, raised reusing sinkhole water for salt dome mining but wrote then the company was talking with an unnamed customer about the water’s suitability.”

“Police Jury President Martin “Marty” Triche told Killeen jurors favored Texas Brine finding another method of disposing of the water, such as through a pipeline to injection wells, instead of discharging into the bayous with monitoring but no treatment.”

The more recent sinkhole photos from On Wings of Care show the area much better than graphics used by many media outlets.

The Advocate[East Baton Rouge]Fired Baton Rouge Parish Attorney Mary Roper issued misdemeanor summons

“The investigators discovered three email accounts belonging to attorneys for the Parish Attorney’s Office that were illegally accessed more than 40 times, he said. Detectives determined the illegal access originated from a home IP address belonging to Roper.

Investigators also uncovered evidence indicating use of Roper’s personal computer to illegally access the Parish Attorney’s Office email system through a proxy service designed to mask the user’s actions and location, Manale said.”

Enemy of Standard Oil and still vilified, Huey Long died 80 years ago.

“Under the principle of the separation of church and state it is not legal to provide funding to Catholic schools. Louisiana had in Huey Long’s and still has many Catholic schools where Catholic parents preferred to send their children. Huey long came up with the simple but brilliant ploy of providing textbooks to children rather than to their schools. This enable the state government to subsidize both public and parochial education. Many people, even political opponents of Long supported this program.

Long however wanted to impose the cost of the textbook program upon the petroleum companies like Standard Oil. This measure was not supported by many in the state legislature.”

They were never investigated for ordering his assassination but they had the means, the motive and the opportunity to do the deed.  Today reports on (enemy of oil companies) Hugo Chavez with the same spirit as the dictator description given to (enemy of oil companies) Long.
