OIL SPILL CREEPS TOWARD TAMPA; MASSIVE POWER SHUTDOWN FEARED
BLOBS OF OIL WASH UP ON FLORIDA SHORES
I can stay in NC indefinitely and if I find out they are going to try this
nuke-solution, I'm going to run up to Cocoa Beach for a couple of days at
least until I see no tsunami rolling across the lake.
A bud of mine runs Sea-Tow up near the Panhandle, and I just sent him an
article I saw that says BP is paying fishermen and other boat owners
$3000 a day to assist in cleanup. I might volunteer to help out if he
wants to get into it. I've dealt with spilled oil before as a natural
part of being in the boating biz. The thing is, apparently these gases are
accompanying the oil...
Hydrogen sulfide- safe level 5 parts per billion
Level now 1300 parts per billion
Benzine- safe 0 to 4 parts per billion
level now is 3000 parts per billion
Methylene Chloride safe 61 parts per billion
now 3000-3400 parts per billion
I've got a full-face respirator and a body suit but I don't think ANY of
this stuff is good for you in any way. Wouldn't be worth the money if I
come down with lung cancer in a couple of months, which I am already
at risk of from all the fiberglass dust, resin and paint fumes I've
gotten over the years fixing boats. Then again, my lungs are probably
Technicolor already, and may have achieved Keith Richard's age stasis
at this point.
John, did you hear about the Chevron "leak" that occurred in Canada in
the Great Lakes on April 21, the day after this in the Gulf??? The
Mississippi River is done. Hey, at least you are on the "right side"
of the State in Pennsylvania. No doubt this is a calculated attempt
at taking down our planet. I am glad you are up there and safe.
