From Real Coastal Warriors : Gulf oyster harvest has nose-dived since BP spill

“…Gulf Coast oyster harvests have declined dramatically in the four years since a BP PLC oil well blew wild in the nation’s worst offshore oil disaster. Even after a modest rebound last year, thousands of acres of oyster beds where oil from the well washed ashore are producing less than a third of their pre-spill harvest.”

The AdvocateJudge tells sinkhole lawyers to settle taxpayers’ claims

The state district judge presiding over year-old lawsuits seeking reimbursement of state and parish costs from the Bayou Corne-area sinkhole urged Texas Brine Co. and its insurers Monday to turn their attention away from internal battles over coverage and focus on settling the primary legal claims seeking to recover taxpayer dollars.

Judge Guy Holdridge, of the 23rd Judicial District, told a courtroom of more than two dozen lawyers from Texas Brine Co., its insurers, and state and Assumption Parish government that he has dealt with similar cases in the past involving multiple insurers and millions of dollars in claims and that the sheriff’s and Police Jury’s claims, in particular, are worth just several hundred thousand dollars each.

“My frustration is why are we working and kneading me up as a judge over these small claims, and I’m having to deal with 1,000 New Orleans lawyers. I don’t know why we are doing this,” Holdridge said at the Assumption Parish Courthouse in Napoleonville. . . .


There has been fewer posts here than usual because news from Bayou Corne has slowed to a trickle …
chickenscratch

There’s been almost no updates posted lately from DNR.

 

DEQ has a new situation update Aug. 3 but they don’t report any stats. They just say everything’s fine. They have a water quality report for 7-29. They have a July air sample report.

The  Texas Brine Action Plan was pretty recent, Aug. 3. Oxy has one too for Aug. 3. So does KDS Promix, DOW, Arcadian GasChevron and Crosstex. Chevron is reducing inventory and slowing down. They don’t say it is due to instability but we doubt it is a reduction to greed that prompts them! Arcadian is idle too.

Texas Brine’s Action Plan uses an incredibly old photo of Lake FUBAR. We wonder how they can plan anything without a current picture or map.

The last Texas Brine drilling report was for 2012 just after the collapse. They say they closed Oxy 3 with a master valve so maybe they didn’t do any more drilling and that was the last report.

WIPP a Time Bomb

Time bombs may be ticking at the United States’ only deep geological repository for nuclear waste. US authorities concluded last week that at least 368 drums of waste at the site could be susceptible to the chemical reaction suspected to have caused a drum to rupture there in February. . . .

WIPP a Super Danger + Lake FUBAR’S Burps + Wed. News

ENE-News – Officials now admit over 500 barrels of nuclear waste at risk of bursting open  kittylitter — AP: 368 already at WIPP dump — “New Mexico sees ‘imminent’ danger — State orders WIPP to prevent “health or environmental threat”; Must ‘permanently seal’ underground storage areas

In a nutshell,  they were supposed to put clay- based kitty litter (reg. kind) on leaky rad waste content when they put it in steel drums for storage. Some dim wits who don’t think things out too well got new ‘improved’ (non-clay-based) kitty litter made with organic (combustible) other ingredients. It is reacting with seepy, oozy rad waste and popping lids off the drums.

The situation at Carlsbad is very dire, unlike early reports ENE-News reports.

Interesting comment : “Carlsbad has a sink hole watch, there is monitors on the main road in down town Carlsbad. With all the gas/oil wells & fracking going on, we see the madness of how these people think. If WIPP worked perfectly there would have been no release period.
They better pray the WIPP site does not just turns into one giant sink hole like at Bayou Corne,LA., it’s game over if it does.”

Could Floor Heave at WIPP Happen at Bayou Corne?

Did it already happen?

Item – ENE-News article  “Heaving of bottom” may have taken place below broken bolts”

A comment to the article is relevant to Bayou Corne –

“the salt, though like rock, is fluid. The rate of creep is slow but has a high variability to it. The salt is compressed from the weight above, and this pressure is manifested in all directions, sort of like when you pressurize water. So when you hollow it out, there is tremendous pressure, like a truck pressing in on each square inch. This enormous pressure slowly fills the void from all directions.

Imagine that there is the gas/atmosphere that also gets pressurized and would surely be escaping through the smallest egress. Explosive gas at high pressure…this is one reason they back fill and plug with concrete as they go.

The reason there are salt dome formations is because the salt is less dense compared to surrounding rock and it slowly “floats” toward the surface in balloon like shapes. This would eventually…eons… bring the waste with it to the surface, if it could burst through cap rock and whatever.”

Climate Viewer – Supreme Court to set limits on suing Corporate Polluters

[snip] . . . Environmental activist Erin Brockovich and dozens of military veterans rallied outside the Supreme Court today as the justices heard arguments that an electronics company was responsible for contamination at its old plant in Asheville, North Carolina.

The case,  CTS Corporation v. Waldburger, will decide if federal environmental law preempts North Carolina’s statute of repose, which imposes a 10-year limit to file a claim.  A ruling by the Supreme Court in favor of CTS Corporation could create a climate in which corporate polluters would be “rewarded” for concealment and material misrepresentation of their environmental problems. . .
