Russia’s Scientists: Toxic Rain From Oil Spill Will Ravage America

burning-oil-rig-explosion-fire-photo11Russia’s top scientists have informed their president that they expect toxic rain from the Gulf oil spill to destroy the eastern coast of the United States. They also believe that BP’s use of a chemical dispersal agent at the spill site is hiding just how bad the spill really is. Er, here’s hoping they’re wrong? From the EU Times:

A dire report prepared for President Medvedev by Russia’s Ministry of Natural Resources is warning today that the British Petroleum (BP) oil and gas leak in the Gulf of Mexico is about to become the worst environmental catastrophe in all of human history threatening the entire eastern half of the North American continent with “total destruction”.

Russian scientists are basing their apocalyptic destruction assessment due to BP’s use of millions of gallons of the chemical dispersal agent known as Corexit 9500 which is being pumped directly into the leak of this wellhead over a mile under the Gulf of Mexico waters and designed, this report says, to keep hidden from the American public the full, and tragic, extent of this leak that is now estimated to be over 2.9 million gallons a day.

Even worse, should a Katrina like tropical hurricane form in the Gulf of Mexico while tens of millions of gallons of Corexit 9500 are sitting on, or near, its surface the resulting “toxic rain” falling upon the North American continent could “theoretically” destroy all microbial life to any depth it reaches resulting in an “unimaginable environmental catastrophe” destroying all life forms from the “bottom of the evolutionary chart to the top”.

    “But to their greatest enemy the Americans need look no further than their nearest mirror as they are the ones who allowed these monsters to rule over them in the first place.”

    Because every vote matters, right?

    America has been systematically stolen from “the people” since the Great Depression.

    All we can do now is wait for the collapse and hope we rebuild it better next time.

    • tonyviner

      “Hope?” Now where have I heard that before?

      • emperorreagan

        At least he's referring to hope in the collective ability of people to rebuild, rather than the idea of pinning your hopes on some self-appointed demigod.

    You do realise that's a fascist website no?

  • Hamsanath437

    doesn't take a genius to realize this spill is screwing everything up. Human prediction tend to suck though, so I guess time will tell whether they're full of crap or not.

    Wow. Sucks to be the East Coast.
    At least the Jersey Shore will barely notice.

    • das

      forget what you see on that stupid show or what you think you know about it, but the jersey shore has some of the best and most entertaining beaches in the world, minus the people of course

        you mean : it “used to” have the great beaches!

    This website has also proclaimed that Atlantis has been found, Bilderberg's secrets have been revealed, Bulgarian beer increased breast volume, and Obama is preparing over a million troops for civil war.

    • adam

      that's no reason to discard every bit of information that comes from here. Sure they're really into conspiracy theory but even a slight glance into this particular situation can see that such a thing isn't impossible and is something we should be thinking about on many different levels.

        “that's no reason to discard every bit of information that comes from here.”

        True enough. However, no other English language news organization in the world has reported that this particular Ministry of Natural Resources report even exists (except those using EU Times as a source), let alone says what EU Times says it does, let alone that the supposed conclusions of the supposed report are correct. Given their track record of, y'know, just making stuff up, I don't think this is something of concern.

        • Rowan Duffy

          The fact that they are fascists should probably enter into it as well.

        • Barney

          America…the “greatest nation on the earth”…wake up. We live n a country overrun with greed, self-indulgence, violence, and lies. You believe what you have been taught to believe. The struggle to learn to think without the propaganda fed to us like an unending slurry is nearly impossible; however, it can be accomplished. Controlled confusion. Disinformation. There is no species like the human species. While we are capable of great compassion, we are also the most gullable creatures to ever exist. All someone has to do is wave a flag and eyes well up with tears…tears which should fall for the countless crimes against life orchestrated by the shriveled wratiths who feed off of the good intentions and blood of those they claim to preserve, protect, and defend. Don't take my word for it, the bill is comming due and those who suck the life out of everything are dancing as fast as they can to divert the attention and thinking of good, decent people and continue to manipulate them until nothing is left but decay and ashes. Watch and see for yourself.

    • Novaflo

      regardless..

      the source of this report is the EU TIMES!!! ..are they a bunch of whacky conspiricy theorists?

      your simply in the “Denial phase”…you'll come around soon enough.

  • Triangleye

    It's this kind of journalism that won them the cold war. Bravo Russia, bravo.

  • oman28

    Russia provides the worst case scenario and BP provides the best case scenario.

    • Tnix80

      This is probably the answer. I trust russia more though.

  • Wellsie

    I think there are number of factors to this. One, its not been covered in the mainstream media. Partly because its not very credible but also because if it was covered I imagine BP's shares might plummet (if they get too low, they'd get taken over, possibly by a Russian Oil company wanting a stronger/dominant foothold in the GOM). Also, they might inflict further psychological damage on the US population who are already filled with doom and gloom about this mess. (As well as undermining Obama's presidency – apparently Russian officials already refused to shake his hand.)

    • Tnix80

      I think it might be the black thing. They don't see them over there and simply don't trust “those people”, or maybe it's something else about him. Maybe they just don't respect a wimp.

      if you don't believe it might be a real threat, than maybe the unexplained damage to Mississippi crops might make you reconsider. Check out the above link. It may not be the case, but the issue warrants further discussion/investigation.

    Additional hysterical comment that expresses impotent rage and ill-informed opinion!

  • UncleB

    The American Empire is doomed to follow the Soviet Empire! China will not fall into the trap! China already has electric bullet train networks for their Patriots! They cater to the working class! America has the “Selection Committees” of the American Medical Cartel ready to refuse medical care to Americans who are displaced by capitalist maneuvering of money to Asia! America depends on China for financing! China has won WWIII, fought this time on the Economic front – the new battle ground! Now China will slowly rob all wealth and goodness it can take from America then move in and by immigration change the face of a corrupt and indecent corporatism in America forever! Soon we will teach Mandarin in our schools the better to communicate with our new “Owners”.

    So yes, there is a Russian Ministry of Natural Resources. Doesn't make the news item true of course…

    Let's hope those Russian scientists are evangelical reconstructionists on a rampage.

  • Bruce

    Th EU Times is a racist site on which overtly racist views are actively expressed and encouraged. I advise sites to not link back to it as one day Google may penalise you for being linked to a bad domain.
