Did anyone catch "Freemason Island"? Maybe it's nothing, don't know, but sure is fishy. What I don't understand is why they didn't consider concurrent measures taken to mitigate the spill released, IN ADDITION to attempting to stop the flow. Don't know how that would be accomplished but did they do any type of estimates or trajectories of where the flow would seep towards? Could some type of containment or barrier have been possible (regardless of $ feasible) or even "moving" at least some wildlife prior?
and will this become a trend? if it is unexpected internal changes of the earth that caused this (alongside the shortcuts taken for maximizing profit) then as more earth changes occur will lessons be learned or repeat mistakes. of course 'by design' is always in mind and if by design, does "Freemason Island" mean anything.
Alright, gotta look it up now!
edit: interesting . . . and upsetting.
The chain or ecosystem itself has been hit repeatedly going back to Dennis and Katrina, Hurricane Georges in 1998 and Camille in 1969. So based on what we know or at least suspect today about "disaster management" being about the creation of a disaster as much so if not more than the management of its effects, why? Cui bono? Oh yes, those at "the top".
These images provide good shots of the deteriorating inhabitable mass.http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=5910
Still do not know why or when it is called "Freemason Island" . . . .
