Corrupt judge continues to abuse Bayou Corne residents –
Louisiana Record (May 8) – Judge Zainey disregards Bayou Corne class complaints, grants class counsel $12 million in legal fees; Residents consider asking Bar for reprimand

“NEW ORLEANS – A federal judge overseeing the Bayou Corne sinkhole case has approved $12 million in legal fees, just weeks after the plaintiffs said their lawyers “mistreated and manipulated” them into accepting a subpar settlement. . .

The Finger Lakes region in west New York has a collapsing cavern problem too

” . . . Cark claims there are structural issues. In the 1960s, a 400,000-ton hunk of rock fell from one of the ceilings, and now rests on the floor of the cavern, leaving behind a potentially unstable irregular hole the size of a football field. And while salt caverns are nearly impervious to gas, when you have irregularities, they can cause leaks, or, worse, collapse.”

Still more questions than answers about the ecological effects of oil dispersants used in Gulf of Mexico

” . . .  Along with 210 million gallons of crude oil that leaked from BP’s failed deep-sea well, cleanup workers applied 1.84 million gallons of chemical dispersant intended to break down the oil and prevent it from reaching the shoreline in massive quantities.

Since the spill, numerous studies have suggested that the mix of oil and chemical dispersants was more toxic to at least parts of the marine ecosystem than the oil alone. . . “

OK frack-quakes:  Oil tycoon Harold Hamm reportedly tried to get scientists fired over their earthquake research

Harold Hamm, the CEO of oil company Continental Resources, tried to get scientists at the University of Oklahoma fired after the presented research that increased seismic activity in the Midwest is linked to wastewater disposal from fracking . . .

Dire Warning for Louisiana! Gulf of Mexico Collapse Scenario.

Massive Explosive Potential in Louisiana and Gulf of Mexico. Doomsday?

By Freedomrox

[snip] . . . The Oil layer nearby known as “Big Hum” cannot account for all of the methane pressures Bayou Corne is expressing. If the drilling keeps up next to the Eastern walls by the Australian Drilling Operations….then a total collapse of the Eastern wall is a very high probability. Pressurized Methane Gas is the precursor of liquid oil migrating through the Yellow Seep Zone. I personally see no way to stem or stop this. This is an environmental disaster that will in one way or the other impact and empty all of the surrounding areas in the years to come. Most of the Gulf is in extreme danger!

The mouth of the Gulf of Mexico is collapsing at the gullet of the Mississippi River. When you take out heavy fluids from cracks, fissures, and reservoirs, and do not replace something of equal density, then logic tells you it will fail. This has been the oil industry’s dirtiest secret, and one you have been lied to about since you were a child. The oil industry would have you believe that you can get something for nothing, and never have to put anything back. . .

PART 2

[snip] “. . . .what is not listed here is Texas Brine’s expertise as the provider of the major component for hydraulic fracturing fluids, nor it’s expertise in storing ‘Fracking’ fluids within these caverns, nor does it list expertise in determining whether there are pre-existing hydrocarbons underneath the cavities they create. This is what the authorities claim is the case at the Napoleonville facility. Natural gas and oil just so happened to be BESIDE the Salt Diapir, and tapped into by coincedence when a known salt cavern was not within the Salt, and laying upon Shale, next to several abandoned Oil Wells, especially the Hooker Oil Well # 1. Watch them pin it all on this one.

BP and Transocean to head up study of oil sheen cause — they get to investigate. . . THEMSELVES!

WOW! That’s a trick! Like having Booth investigate who shot Lincoln!

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Federal officials said late Friday they have approved a joint plan from BP and Transocean to identify the source of a sheen in the Gulf Of Mexico associated with the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. . . .
