This was sent to me from a great friend. I feel it deserves to be rebroadcast.
A COLOSSAL COVERUP
It is one of the biggest cover-ups in US history.
The oil is still gushing in the Gulf.
All available data indicates that the original wellhead was never capped: the latitude and longitude of the camera through which we were all watching the oil spew from the wellhead actually changed to a wellhead 7 miles away, and that is the one they capped. No mention has ever been made of the original wellhead since then. That’s right, they plugged another well and showed a picture of that one.
So that is lie number one.
In addition, it is a known certainty that the seabed was fractured so badly for miles around the original well that oil has continued to spew uncontrollably from the sea floor, with no way to plug it.
This has been withheld from the public. Number two.
If oil is pouring from a well and cracks in the ocean floor, why the Hell can’t we see it?
The answer to this is two-fold.
First and foremost, someone is continuing to spray the Gulf with the chemical “dispersant” called Corexit. Corexit breaks up the oil so that it quickly sinks below the surface and is hidden from view. Once there, it spreads the mutant concoction throughout the water creating a toxic environment from which the marine life cannot escape. It eventually sinks it to the bottom of the ocean where it continues to do long-term damage to the entire marine eco system – but that’s not all.
The EPA has stated that Corexit ceased being used on July 19th, 2010. But unmarked, military-type aircraft (C-130s and C123s) have been flying sorties over the Gulf in the dead of night, spraying the poison over the now-toxic ocean to conceal the fact that voluminous amounts of oil are still spewing into the water. The amount of oil reaching the surface has become so evident that they are now risking being photographed spraying during daylight. Lie number 3.

The dispersant may hide the oil but it is doing massive damage to the eco-system – massive. Moreover, Corexit has one other little problem – it is carcinogenic.
In fact, this chemical is so toxic, that people handling it are instructed by the manufacturer’s product handling information to wear Haz Mat suits and full-blown respirators. Unfortunately for thousands of cleanup workers, BP wouldn’t allow them to wear the suits because they didn’t want it to look like there was any danger attached to the cleanup - it might increase their liability.
Not only is the seafood from the Gulf now laced with this stuff (despite the government’s statement to the contrary - #4), the relentless spraying has initiated a massive human health crisis.
According to one study, a staggering 50% of the people in the Gulf are experiencing the toxic effects of the Corexit-laden atmosphere. Moreover, there is a report from one of the gulf oil cleanup workers that, “Thousands of Gulf Oil Spill clean-up crew are dying.”
These workers are experiencing symptoms such as severe neurological damage, kidney and liver failure, paralysis, internal bleeding, "flu" symptoms that won't go away, and death.
You can see the story of one woman who has documented her own case and that of many others. (It’s not pretty. Don’t watch if you have a weak stomach.)
This isn’t just another health problem: this is an apocalyptic and immediate health crisis.
So, while we are now engaged in a third “war” against a dictator in Libya for human rights abuses against his own people, BP, the EPA and other government entities are engaged in a cover up of an ecological disaster by secretly spraying a virulent poison into the Gulf that is destroying the eco-system, the fishing industry and the lives of people that live and work there.
A deadly hypocrisy.
A hypocrisy that is hidden in plain sight.
I said there were two reasons that you couldn’t see the oil. The other “reason” is…you can see it. The oil is now coming up in such massive amounts that it is overwhelming the ability of the Corexit to hide it. And, as mentioned above, the C-130s are now taking the extraordinary step of spraying in daylight.
These pictures were taken over the Gulf on March 19, 2011 by a professional aerial photographer from a private plane. (same apology as above about pictures)
Just a little odd when BP and the EPA say the well was capped on July 19th, 2010 and that there was no more evidence of oil. Per journalist Harlan Kirgan, who attended a press conference held by Mike Utsler, chief operating officer of BP’s Gulf Coast Restoration,
“Utsler said, ‘We are actually very encouraged. And, I say we collectively as federal, state, local and trustees and landowners at the progress that has been made in the state of readiness for the upcoming tourism season.'
“Utsler said the overwhelming body of peer-reviewed science that has been published has shown there is no longer an oil plume.”
Unfortunately for Big Mike’s credibility, 5 days later, the Grand Isle and Fourchon beaches in Louisiana underwent a military-type takeover to shut them down completely and prevent anyone from getting anywhere near them, especially independent scientists who wanted to take samples of the massive oil plume rolling in.

So why am I telling you this shocking and tragic story?
Because something needs to be done about it and there is a solution.
I have done something here, which I don’t normally do. And that is, I am forwarding information from my wife’s work.
Those of you that are also on her email list know some of what I have told you above. And some of you know Barb. But for those that don’t, she is the International President of The Earth Organization http://www.TheEarthOrganization.org , an independent, international conservation and environmental organization.
So, here’s the deal: Barb and the US staff of The Earth Organization have been working on this situation flat out for several months –night and day, 24/7; New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas, Florida. They came across a solution – a product that dramatically speeds up Mother Nature’s natural processes of cleaning up the oil in a non-toxic way. Whereas, nature would take over a century to clean up the massive amounts of oil in this spill, this method would do it in a matter of a few weeks - and with absolutely no adverse side effects.
The product has been used to clean up more than 16,000 oil spills planet-wide over the last two decades. I repeat, 16,000.
What is the reaction of British Petroleum and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency when informed about the toxic nature of Corexit (which they already knew) and the eye-popping results of the natural product, which they also were aware of? … …A product which has been used over 100 times by the US Navy to clean up oil spills just in San Diego Bay?...
They won’t let the product anywhere near the Gulf.
Impossible,” you say. “How could a government agency whose purpose is to clean up the environment and protect the public’s health, permit an oil company to poison the eco-system and thousands of Americans?”
You could just as easily ask how the FDA, an agency charged with protecting the public’s health, can approve drugs that cause heart attacks, suicidality and death, while stopping or curtailing non-toxic health solutions that are nutritionally beneficial.
There are plenty of other examples. I’m sure you know of some. But my purpose here is not to investigate all of the evil on the planet; my purpose here is to let you know that a national tragedy is occurring right under our noses and there is a solution available.
Barb and her team have investigated this catastrophe and its solution relentlessly. She is working with world class scientists, professional investigators, state and federal legislators, activists and manufacturers of a product that can clean up the oil spill in a beneficial and non-toxic way.
Neither she nor The Earth Organization have any financial interest in the product; their sole intention is to halt the environmental catastrophe still occurring in the Gulf, return the waters to even better than their pre-blowout condition, and save the lives of millions of people living and working there.
Last week, she took evidence of the situation to key members of the United States Congress in an effort to get the EPA to cease allowing the spraying of Corexit in the Gulf and permit natural solutions to be implemented.
She had several meetings. They went extremely well. Key congressional committee staff have asked for some additional information, which her team is in the process of gathering. But they are up against one of the biggest oil companies in the world with 96,000 employees and revenues of $297 billion, and a rogue government agency that is supporting the poisoning of the environment and citizenry in the Gulf on a colossal scale.
Which actually makes it a pretty even fight; but it’s costly, folks.
The Earth Organization is a registered nonprofit. They rely on the donations of members and supporters. This last cache of information requested by congressional staff is available, but a number of high-priced professionals are needed to scientifically document certain aspects of this, and to bring the necessary pressure to bear to get this situation turned around.
So I am writing to you to give her a hand.
We all devote a great deal of time, money and effort to make this a better world. This project, brought to a successful conclusion, will not only save an enormous area of environment, massive numbers of marine life and wildlife, but countless human lives.
I don’t mean to be gruesome, but people poisoned by the Corexit there are suffering agonizing deaths.
What do you say, can you give Barb and The Earth Organization a hand in bringing an ethical solution to the toxic holocaust now occurring in the Gulf.
God will smile.
