Gulf Gas Explosion? Hmmm….

Recently, Richard Hoagland has been on Coast to Coast suggesting there could be a huge gas explosion associated with the oil well that blew and has caused the terrible damage there.   e.g.…   He claims to have inside info. But is it valid? Here’s an alternative explanation from someone I know. I think folks are about to go into panic mode and maybe you are, too — and that is the kind of energy “the crew” is feeding on.  They had Richard Hoagland on Coast to Coast last night promoting panic, playing a doomsday scenario.  How sad.  I hope my thoughts below will help counteract some of the scare tactics that are being launched. The whole story of the bubble under the ocean floor “cavitating” actually got me to laugh.  This bubble that Hoagland is talking about would be in the upper layers of the limestone. Limestone is always layered or stratified. In other words it is never a consistent density or formation from each layer to the next.  That means that it has weak regions and strong regions.  Think of Florida and the kind of stone Ed Leedskalnin used for the Coral Castle: limestone (formed from coral).  Folks drill down through various layers of the limestone in Florida to find water.  Think of how flat Florida is and how much fresh water they have (lakes, streams, drinking water, springs).  Rivers go through layers that are several hundred feet below ground.  And I’m sure there are layers and layers that are much deeper. Now imagine drilling through all these layers to 4 or 5 miles depth, they will certainly go through many layers.  So, if there is gas collecting in those (as I think Hoagland speculates), it will find weak zones and come out there first.  That is, it seems nearly impossible that there would be a huge pressure building up and then go boom.  To have a huge explosion the size of the Gulf, you would need to have a huge layer between the limestone rocks that was uniform in strength over the ENTIRE area and water-tight.  Limestone is not a pressure vessel.  For the gas pressure to continue to build up and up and up, you would need to have the layers of limestone strong enough to contain the pressure that was building inside of this theoretical layer acting as a pressure vessel and that it be “air-tight” non-porous, everywhere. The most probable result will be that the upper layers of limestone holding the pressure in would continue to leak and fizzle and crack and release the pressure gradually. The worst case stuff would ONLY happen on a large scale if the limestone layers above the “bubble/tank” where COMPLETELY uniform in depth and strength and non-porous. But limestone is not like that, especially over a huge area. It has weak areas and strong areas and leaky areas. It is more likely that the thinner weaker areas would let go in small sections which would drastically reduce the rate and violence of the relief of the gas pressure at worst.  I think it would be more like those bubbler stones in a fish tank that diffuse the air through a porous stone…but this won’t be air.  But we don’t even know that the gas accumulation exists! So, 1) The gas accumulation may or may not even exist 2) If it exists, it has close to zero percent chance there can be much of a build-up of pressure. For me, the issues are how big of an oil reservoir there is just flowing wide open into the Gulf, what they are trying to do to shut it off, how many animals will be killed in the Gulf, how many more jobless people there will be, and who is going to use this as a card to play in a card game.  That last one is one of the biggest.  But all the more reason to promote free energy instead of poking holes in the earth.  The earth does not belong to us; we have no right to destroy it.  (I am reminded of the Joe Walsh song in the late 70s.  It’s about proving how cool you are by trashing the hotels you stay in.) I hope this helps.   Are you interested in what’s really going on in the world, behind the facade? Then…www.checktheevidence… happened on 9/11?
