are talking thousands and thousands of square miles of toxic crud....I'm not even sure the well drillingrigs would even be able to operate in the area...a massive rush of gas can sink ships...the gas is not breathable and it's Explosive too...One thunder storm comes by and a lightning strike?....BOOM...I'm surethe men working there realize they are probably in one the most hazardous work zones they have ever been in...I don't think it's an ELE or something of that order, but we don't need to be wiped out to bestuck enjoying a giant bowl of SUCK...for a very long time...
Ok, do you understand the implications now? This is no ordinary “oil spill”. It truly has the
potential to impact the entire world in a VERY NEGATIVE WAY! As the venerable JacquesCousteau warned, we cannot destroy the ocean, because if we do
–we destroy the very “lifecycles” of the planet itself. Cousteau should know –he was the world’s pre
oceanographer! Folks, the “water cycle” of the oceans and the life cycle of this amazing planet
are truly one. It is like a gigantic chain of dominoes. As an uncontrolled deep plume of toxic oil
and gas enters the warm “loop current” stream, it is highly possible that “1/3 of the world’soceans” could be rendered void of all life –
beginning with the plankton that travels
the “loopcurrent”.This 1943 map accurately depicts the major ocean “loop current” and its ebbs and flows (shown
on the map as orange lines, fittingly enough). Much like the blood flow of the human body, the
world’s oceans are constantly circulati
ng the globe. Cousteau understood and warnedconstantly that once a massive content of contaminants (such as crude oil or gas) ever entered
the “loop”, life as we know it could change dramatically. It all begins with the lowly “plankton”
stream that flows
and grows with the “loop”.
Plankton, as Cousteau and other scientists have verified, is literally the basis of all life on this
planet. It is literally the most critical link on the world’s food chain. Even the largest mammal on
depends entirely on healthy blooms of plankton to survive. Moreover,plankton bloom cycles, combined with healthy ocean currents (and pH factors) determine the
planet’s weather patterns such as “El Nino” as well.
Just as a healthy human body depends on correct and balanced pH levels, so too does the
world’s oceans depend on a balanced and healthy pH reading. The phyto and zooplankton
follows the pH levels in a balanced ecosystem scale. It is not hard to imagine what havoc amassive oil spill, entering
into and circulating the ocean’s “loop current” could wreak on thefragile pH balance scale of the world’s oceans.
