Jerry Cope: Happy holidays from BP, the gift that keeps on giving

Under gray overcast skies eight months after the BP blowout in the Gulf of Mexico, waves of crude oil roll into estuaries, bayous, and onto the deserted beaches as winter sets in along the Gulf Coast. In Orange Beach, Alabama, large slabs of crude continue to come in on a regular basis. In Louisiana and Mississippi, oil mixed with dispersant comes ashore with thousand upon thousands of dead fish. The stench can be overwhelming. The small contingent of cleanup workers still employed by BP attack the most visible surface oil while ignoring the huge pancake layers of crude buried underneath. Many consider the cleanup operations to be nothing more than a continuing public performance while leaving the vast majority of crude behind.

BP managers and employees of rig owner Transocean Ltd. should’ve noticed pressure discrepancies during a so-called negative test on the well 40 miles (64 kilometers) off the Louisiana coast, Robinson said. Those readings should’ve alerted workers that explosive gas had seeped into the well and threatened the 126-member rig crew, he said.

“On the negative test, if they thought there was something wrong, they were to call an outside party either on the vessel or on the beach,” Robinson told the eight-member U.S. Coast Guard and Interior Department joint investigation team. “We did not find any evidence a call was made.”

Donald Vidrine, the ranking well-site leader at the time of the blowout that destroyed the rig and triggered the spill, has been on administrative leave from London-based BP since the incident and has declined to testify before the federal panel. His junior counterpart on the rig that night, Robert Kaluza, also has been suspended and has refused to testify.”

How the Gulf Blue Plague began

So, here we have a scientifically confirmed new oil-eating species of bacterium in the Gulf of Mexico that’s closely related to a bacterium only found in Rod Bay and the Ross Sea, Antarctica, and another one only found in the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand … How do you suppose a new related species of this bacterium from deep cold water Antarctic environments mysteriously and suddenly ended up in the Gulf of Mexico? By use of proven synthetic RNA sequence processes, a new synthetic genome microorganism can be created in 24 hours according to J. Craig Venter of Synthetic Genomics, Inc. and the J. Craig Venter Institute.

The oil-eating bacteria they introduced into the Gulf would be able to eat the oil at an accelerated rate if there were more iron, but typical Gulfwater naturally has a very low trace of iron. But according to rainwater tests from Gulf rainclouds, iron and other elements are being added to the Gulf waters. Perhaps now you can understand that the “dispersant” formula being used also contains elemental nutrients, such as iron, copper, manganese, and aluminum, to enhance and feed the SG bacterium placed into the Gulf to eat up the oil.

Mutations of the plankton have already been verified by University of Southern Florida (USF) scientists months ago. Once this important marine food source has RNA mutations, then everything up the entire food chain is affected. That includes humans who consume fish or crustaceans. What are we facing? More than we can comprehend. Once you alter the bottom of the foodchain, you alter everything from that point on. The Gulf Blue Plague is a reality and has been for many months. It’s a worldwide problem.
