Gulf Oil Disaster EXPOSED: EPA Lies About Air Quality – AGAIN

From stifling the media to buying all search terms related to the disaster, British Petroleum and the Obama Administration have gone to great lengths to hide the true nature of the problem.  The source of the oil well, nearly 6 miles below the ocean’s surface, has apparently tapped into a high-pressure magma chamber where the oil is erupting from the source at an estimated 20,000 – 70,000 psi. 

There is no human technology that can cap that level of pressure and all the “experts” who designed the failed containment box and “Top Kill” solutions knew that.  It is literally like trying to cap a volcano a mile below the ocean’s surface. These attempts were knowingly doomed from the start and apparently staged just to appease an angry public.

A former high-level oil executive reported that the oil volcano in the Gulf of Mexico will never subside and is far worse than anyone is reporting.  Pastor Lindsey Williams (author of Energy Non-Crisis), in a recent interview, claims that his Elite oil informant told him that the oil gusher in the Gulf is erupting around 4 million gallons per day, and it is impossible to stop.  Furthermore, oil is NOT the most harmful element spewing out of the gusher.  No wonder why there are flight restrictions over the area.

Independent analysis by the Louisiana Environmental Action Networkshow toxic Hydrogen Sulfide and Benzene gases in the Gulf area are registering at levels thousands of times above safe levels (reported on Eyewitness News story out of Louisiana).  Yet, the EPA’s headline states, EPA’s air monitoring conducted through June 10, 2010, has found that air quality levels for ozone and particulates are normal on the Gulf coastline for this time of year.”

In the very next sentence the EPA adds a caveat as cover, “EPA has observed odor-causing pollutants associated with petroleum products along the coastline at low levels. Some of these chemicals may cause short-lived effects like headache, eye, nose and throat irritation, or nausea. People may be able to smell some of these chemicals at levels well below those that would cause short-term health problems.”  This, in spite of the fact that Hydrogen Sulfide and Benzene gases can cause death.

These "volatile organic compounds" are in the air that is on the way to the coast for human beings to breathe.  And, of course people are not being warned.  Remember Christy Todd Whitman, former head of the EPA, telling the workers at Ground Zero that the air was safe to breathe in the weeks after 9/11.  Meanwhile, slews of rescue workers are dying now from respiratory and other diseases.  Lies, lies, and more lies.  How can we possibly trust the “official” information that we are being fed?

Although Williams’ informant claims that the oil disaster is a genuine accident and not a conspiracy, the prophets at Goldman Sachs and BP chief Tony Hayward knew enough todump their BP stock in the weeks before the “accident.”  What impeccable timing!

But I digress.  Given that all experts know that the Gulf oil volcano has no promising solutions including drilling a relief well, they are now floating the idea of detonating a nuclear bomb to collapse the well.  According Williams, this “nuclear option” is being planned despite the obvious dangers and uncertain outcome.

It is clear that the oil industry and the Obama Administration have no solutions to this disaster. This may indeed be the pinnacle of man’s folly versus nature.  Although I’m not one to quote religious text to make a point, Revelations 16:3 rings pretty darn true “And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.”

Whitman Details Ongoing Agency Efforts to Monitor Disaster Sites, Contribute to Cleanup Efforts

EPA Administrator Christie Whitman announced today that results from the Agency’s air and drinking water monitoring near the World Trade Center and Pentagon disaster sites indicate that these vital resources are safe. Whitman also announced that EPA has been given up to $83 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to support EPA’s involvement in cleanup activities and ongoing monitoring of environmental conditions in both the New York City and Washington metropolitan areas following last week’s terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

"We are very encouraged that the results from our monitoring of air quality and drinking water conditions in both New York and near the Pentagon show that the public in these areas is not being exposed to excessive levels of asbestos or other harmful substances," Whitman said. "Given the scope of the tragedy from last week, I am glad to reassure the people of New York and Washington, D.C. that their air is safe to breath and their water is safe to drink," she added.

In the aftermath of last Tuesday’s attacks, EPA has worked closely with state, federal and local authorities to provide expertise on cleanup methods for hazardous materials, as well as to detect whether any contaminants are found in ambient air quality monitoring, sampling of drinking water sources and sampling of runoff near the disaster sites.

At the request of FEMA, EPA has been involved in the cleanup and site monitoring efforts, working closely with the U.S. Coast Guard, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and state and local organizations.

EPA has conducted repeated monitoring of ambient air at the site of the World Trade Center and in the general Wall Street district of Manhattan, as well as in Brooklyn. The Agency is planning to perform air monitoring in the surrounding New York metropolitan area. EPA has established 10 continuous (stationary) air monitoring stations near the WTC site. Thus far, from 50 air samples taken, the vast majority of results are either non-detectable or below established levels of concern for asbestos, lead and volatile organic compounds. The highest levels of asbestos have been detected within one-half block of ground zero, where rescuers have been provided with appropriate protective equipment.

In lower Manhattan, the City of New York has also been involved in efforts to clean anything coated with debris dust resulting from Tuesday’s destruction. This involves spraying water over buildings, streets and sidewalks to wash the accumulated dust off the building and eliminate the possibility that materials would become airborne. To complement this clean up effort, EPA has performed 62 dust sample analyses for the presence of asbestos and other substances. Most dust samples fall below EPA’s definition of "asbestos containing material" (one percent asbestos). Where samples have shown greater than one percent asbestos, EPA has operated its 10 High Efficiency Particulate Arresting, HEPA, vacuum trucks to clean the area and then resample. EPA also used the 10 HEPA vac trucks to clean streets and sidewalks in the Financial District in preparation for Monday’s return to business. The Agency plans to use HEPA vac trucks to clean the lobbies of the five federal buildings near the World Trade Center site, and to clean the streets outside of New York’s City Hall.

Drinking water in Manhattan was tested at 13 sampling points, in addition to one test at the Newtown Sewage Treatment plant and pump station. Initial results of this drinking water sampling show that levels of asbestos are well below EPA’s levels of concern.

While FEMA has provided EPA with a Total Project Ceiling cost of slightly more than $83 million for the Agency’s cleanup efforts in New York City and in at the Pentagon site, EPA currently is working with emergency funding of $23.7 million. If costs exceed this level, FEMA will authorize EPA to tap additional funding in increments of $15 million. As part of the additional funding to be provided by FEMA, EPA will be responsible for any hazardous waste disposal, general site safety and providing sanitation facilities for many of the search and rescue workers to wash the dust off following their shifts. EPA is coordinating with both the U.S. Air Force Center for Environmental Excellence and the U.S. Coast Guard to quickly implement these additional responsibilities to ensure that search and rescue personnel are provided with the maximum support and protection from hazardous materials that may be found during their mission.

At the Pentagon explosion site in Arlington Va., EPA has also been involved in a variety of monitoring of air and water quality. All ambient air monitoring results, both close to the crash site and in the general vicinity, have shown either no detection of asbestos or levels that fall well below the Agency’s level of concern. Testing of runoff water from the disaster site does not show elevated levels of contaminants. Given the large numbers of Department of Defense (DOD) employees returning to work this week, EPA has worked closely with officials from DOD and from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to evaluate air and drinking water quality and to be certain that the workplace environment will be safe.

While careful not to impede the search, rescue and cleanup efforts at either the World Trade Center or the Pentagon disaster sites, EPA’s primary concern has been to ensure that rescue workers and the public are not being exposed to elevated levels of potentially hazardous contaminants in the dust and debris, especially where practical solutions are available to reduce exposure. EPA has assisted efforts to provide dust masks to rescue workers to minimize inhalation of dust. EPA also recommends that the blast site debris continue to be kept wet, which helps to significantly reduce the amount of airborne dust which can aggravate respiratory ailments such as asthma. On-site facilities are being made available for rescue workers to clean themselves, change their clothing and to have dust-laden clothes cleaned separately from normal household wash.
