ARMAGEDDON IN THE GULF



Last evening Pastor Butch Paugh hosted Lindsey Williams on his Internet radio show at 9:00 pm Eastern Time. Prior to last evenings radio program, Linsey Williams was also interviewed by Alex Jones on June 10th. See the video above for the interview with Alex Jones where Lindsey reveals his sources.

Lindsey Williams reported to Butch Paugh that the oil well explosion was an accident caused by British Petroleum (BP) drilling a well 25,000 to 30,00 feet into the seabed floor from a floating platform controlled by GPS.

The pressures encountered by drilling 25,000 to 30,000 feet down into the seabed were estimated by BP workers and engineers to be between 20,000 and 70,000 psi(pounds per square inch) at the well head. As an example a typical well in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska would experience a well head pressure of only 1,500 psi according to Lindsey. This is why all the safety devices on the oil rig and well head failed. They were never intended or designed to stop pressures of this magnitude.

The oil equipment used by BP was not designed to handle this kind of pressure. Pressures of this magnitude have never been encountered previously. These pressures are beyond known technological means to handle.

The oil reservoir taped into at this great depth is known as abiotic oil and is not produced by decaying of organic matter which is produced at shallower levels.

BP engineers have confided to Lindsey that 4 million gallons of oil per day are now leaking into the Gulf of Mexico, and not the 25,000 barrels per day being reported by the media. To date 120 miles of shore line have been impacted by the oil spill and 88,502 miles of coastal waters have been closed.

The Federal Aviation Administration(FAA)has already declared the airspace over the spill site to be a no-fly zone until further notice.

Lindsey reported that fracturing the layer of strata where the oil well was drilled has now resulted in additional oil plumes on the seabed floor from 5 to 20 miles beyond the site of the original oil well.

Engineers have now theorized that the only way to stop the leak is with a small nuclear explosion as all other reasonable attempts to stop the leak have failed. However a small nuclear explosion could fracture the oil reservoir structure further resulting in additional oil plumes on the ocean floor. Due to the extremely high pressures encountered at the well head, the well walls are eroding away rapidly making the leak even harder to plug.

Lindsey stressed that the greatest danger from the oil spill is not the oil. It is the volatile gases being released into the sea and air above the well.

Some of these gasses are hydrogen sulfide, benzene and methylene chloride.

Tested levels in the Gulf of Mexico for hydrogen sulfide were recently measured at 1,200 ppb(parts per billion.) The EPA allowable limit is only 5 to 10 ppb. (According to the previous link, the levels have actually exceeded 3,000 ppb.)

Health Effects of Hydrogen Sulfide

H2S is classed as a chemical asphyxiant, similar to carbon monoxide and cyanide gases. It inhibits cellular respiration and uptake of oxygen, causing biochemical suffocation.

Levels for benzene, a known carcinogen were tested at 3,000 ppb. The EPA limit is only 0-4ppb. Exposure to benzene causes headaches, dizziness, and weakens the immune system.

Health Effects of Exposure to Benzene (from the CDC):

- The major effect of benzene from long-term exposure is on the blood. (Long-term exposure means exposure of a year or more.) Benzene causes harmful effects on the bone marrow and can cause a decrease in red blood cells, leading to anemia. It can also cause excessive bleeding and can affect the immune system, increasing the chance for infection.

Methylene chloride, a flammable gas, has been measured at 3,000 to 3,400 ppb in the atmosphere towards the shore. The EPA limit for this gas is only 61 ppb. The EPA considers methylene chloride a probable carcinogen.

Seven fisherman were recently sickened by leaked oil and chemical dispersant used in the spill cleanup in Louisiana.



If the airborne gas levels increase, mass evacuations of the gulf coastal states of Florida, Alabama, and Louisiana could occur. Experts have estimated as many as 30 to 40 million people could be forced to evacuate in the coastal states as far as 200 miles inland if the spill continues..

The cover-up of the true details of the accident by British Petroleum, the black-out by the news media, and government denial of the magnitude of this disaster lead one to conclude that this event is much more serious than anyone could have imagined. The long term effects to our economy and eventual deaths from exposure to carcinogens from the spill and chemicals used in the spill cleanup may rival the impact of 9/11....Steve
