BP OIL DISASTER

If you are not talking about firearms or weapons, do it here.

I hate to take henry back to earth but lets examine the facts. The so called doctor that henry is referring to is not a scientist, geologist or engineer. He's a nutcase, fringe, apocalyptic preacher who spreads this kind of junk.

We can really look at the facts. Doing this in my head, the PSI of seawater at that depth is about 27 to 30K. When the pressure of the seawater equalizes the pressure of the reservoir the leak will stop. What he's saying is nuts. Primary recovery of the reservoir is not going to be much more than 15% and water injection is used all the time to increase pressure to increase the recovery %. In addition if the reservoir is composed of porous rock, likely here, then there's not going to be a collapse of any kind. This is apocalyptic nonsense.

Here's a little fact to leave you with. The NATURAL leakage of petroleum into the gulf is probably the equivalent of one or two Exxon Valdez leaks per year and that's just the Gulf.

Hey Black, they're going to ask you to follow the rules regarding personal attacks. Since you're not good at it anyway, why continue?

Here's what I deemed possible.



Pressure's equalize, the oil stops as a pressurized leak. agreed?



The question remains now, Will the remaining oil still not displace it's way to the surface and water take it's place down below? I cant think of a compelling reason why it wouldn't.



I also have no idea of the temperatures associated with the various depths of water, the depths of the sea floor below, and the cavity which was holding the oil in the first place to intelligently discuss this steam theory. Someone enlighten us!



I imagine this falls into the same category as the methane gas bubble explosion tsunami theory........

I know who this guy is, and he's right. Nutcase, fringe, pretty much describes him to a T. Oh, I forgot "humble" too.

OK, I'm going to say this once. Out in the open for all to see.



You two or anyone else can bicker back and forth, poke at each other, get smoochy smoochy etc........ all you want here in OFF TOPIC so long as it doesn't get too personal.



Too personal is our decision as moderators. Too personal might get you a vacation from the site. Keep it as respectfull as your capable of guys.



Here's and idea, start your own thread here in off topic to trash talk each other out of respect for everyone else.



In other forum areas, this kind of behavior is not going to be tolerated no matter if it has in the past. We're lenient here guys, don't abuse the system!

Scolding taken, but hasn't my BFF been rather hurtful to people here for months? You never cared then. Why now? Double standards or what? Just because someone seems to have all the answers doesn't make their delivery method acceptable when their method of delivery is to shove it in your face. I see a lot of angry people here, just in case you haven't noticed. Thanks, I'll let myself out.....

Your concern is noted. It's been discussed and we've taken action and will continue to do so. Some you'll see, some you wont. Your not alone here black and your not being singled out. That, I promise you.

BeltBuckle I believe you asked a quesition to me in a previous post before telling the people on here to stick to PM's. I didn't understand what you were asking though, sorry! please explain.



I really have no experience with who the writer is, but I see what you said whitehood. Tell you the truth, I'm not that much of an expert with this, and for sure, everyone in the scientific world disagrees and nobody can ACTUALLY know the pressures down there. I'm not sure where you get your sources, and I respect you in your decisions, I do believe that the mainstream media is covering as lightly as possible though any "facts". I'm not trying to persuade anyone or tell them that this information is "The Absolute Truth (capitol T)". I just wanted to throw out an article that caught my eye... keep in mind, he didn't write that article. he was giving you the scientists report.
