It turned out that my instincts were not far off the mark. And Wickstrom followed the same path in seeking confirmatory data for what he posted on 4 June that I did. But unlike me, he has not vetted his sources.
It is clear that there is a media blackout of events in the Gulf. The administration has outlawed any media from coming closer than 65 feet to the zone being worked on, and British Petroleum has bought keywords so as to be able to manipulate where people using search engines can get their data. It has been hard to get late breaking news from the region. The latest story I've been able to get has been from Sorcha Faal, an Irish news source that is said to have links to Russian intelligence. In fact, one could view Sorcha Faal as analogous to Debkafiles. Debkafiles is the Mossad's "back door" for leaks, and Sorcha Faal may well be the "back door" of Russian intelligence for the same purpose. A careful look at these articles from Sorcha Faal gives you a feel for my assertion. Obama Warns World Leaders 'Millions Could Die' From Gulf Oil Disaster, from 27 June; NATO Orders All 'Critical Assets' Moved 100 Miles From Gulf Oil Spill Region, from 4 July; NATO Orders 7,000 Marines to Costa Rica as Quake Fears Grow, from 8 July. Now the important thing to realize from these articles, all of them, is that as one goes through the links, vetting the articles, the links are legit. But in all of them is some allegation that just does not smell right. And all of the articles seem to lobby for the use of a small tactical nuke to close the spill, an act that could effectively shut down access to the oil altogether. When you realize that there are only two really massive untapped sources for abiotic oil — Russia and the Gulf of Mexico — you realize where that puts Russia in terms of controlling the world's oil supplies.
But Sorcha Faal may not be the only source for seeing an Extinction Level Event in the Gulf Oil disaster.
Helium has an interesting Doomsday article called "How the BP Gulf Disaster May Have Triggered a World-Wide Killing Event." The article, by Terrence Aym, explores the theories of bio-chemical engineer Gregory Ryskin of Northwestern University, who seems to believe that "[t]he oceans periodically produce massive eruptions of explosive methane gas. He has documented the scientific evidence that such an event was directly responsible for the mass extinctions that occurred 55 million years ago." According to the article,
The warning signs of an impending planetary catastrophe—of such great magnitude that the human mind has difficulty grasping it-would be the appearance of large fissures or rifts splitting open the ocean floor, a rise in the elevation of the seabed, and the massive venting of methane and other gases into the surrounding water.
Such occurrences can lead to the rupture of the methane bubble containment—it can then permit the methane to breach the subterranean depths and undergo an explosive decompression as it catapults into the Gulf waters.
