Obama's Future Disappears Over The Deepwater Horizon
by Xavier Connolly.

President Obama described the oil spill from the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico as America's worst environmental disaster ever. That is not true, the oil spillng from the fractured well has a long way to go before overtaking a similar blowout in the Gulf in 1979. What do we expect from the rock star President other than posing, posturing and crude attempt to make political capital out of catastrophe.

This week Barack Obama has been seen on television news bulletins around the world talking about how he would know whose arse to kick over the oil spilling from the stricken Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico and polluting the waters of that sea.

The spill is now in its seventh week and for the people who live on the shores of the Gulf Of Mexico and make their living from its beaches and waters this accident is a catastrophe. It is a problem of huge proportions both financially, operationally and in public relations terms for well operator BP. But it is Backack Obama's disaster. The indecision and lack of leadership qualities he has shown expose him for the vacuous man he is.

All Obama, hailed as the great thinker, the empowerer, enabler, unifier and leader, the man of infinite charisma and boundless intellect, has done so far however is indulge in slagging of Britain and all things British.

For all Obama's sly accusations and sneaky innuendo there is no more evidence of malfeasance on the part of BP than there is of the Obama administration having planned the disaster to support their green initiatives (one of the wilder accusations to come from the American right.)

Drilling for oil below a 5,000ft seabed is a difficult business which involves risks. But it is essential. Only recently the ash belched out by a small volcano in Iceland caused chaos in Western Europe when it grounded commercial flights showing how heavily dependent on air travel the nations of the developed world are.

The modern world depends even more heavily on oil. In spite of all the vacuous rhetoric about "the green economy" spewed out by Obama and other politicians who like to style themselves "the progressive left" the world's appetite for oil in increasing at an accelerating rate as the economies of China, India and other large developing nations catch up with the traditional economic leaders. Over the next two decades, we will need to find four new oil field each the equivalent in terms of extractable reserves of the Saudi Arabian bonanza. As there are currently no realistic alternatives to oil offshore drilling is unavoidable and deep water exploration imperative. BP has long ben a leader in this type of exploration, as well as devoting significant budgets to developing sustainable energy sources that are economically viable and reliable enough to replace fossil fuel and nuclear energy. Lord Browne, BP's former chief executive once suggested renaming the company "Beyond Petroleum". Unfortunately all the alternatives tested so far have been disappointing so the world is not yet ready to boldly go beyond petroleum.

Forget the climate change hysteria for the moment. We are stuck with oil unless we are willing to return to a near medieval lifestyle. For that reason oil companies have been drilling in deep waters over the past 20 years. Most oil analysts can see no alternative to exploration in the Atlantic and the Arctic and around the Falkland Islands. Above all, it explains the extent of the drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, the fastest growing oil region in the world, now producing 30 per cent of the US's oil needs. A case can be made that the recent scare about catastrophic climate change was fabricated to soften up taxpayers for swingeing energy taxes to fund the costs of opening up these fields.

Let's not pretend oil was ever a safe business to be in. Oilmen have always known that they were dealing with a dangerous and volatile substance. From the real life exploits of Red Adair to some spectacular Hollywood blockbusters we have been shown what can go wrong when trying to get at oil deposits that have lain undisturbed for millions of years. President Obama is typical shallow, showboating style has been hyping up the current spill as America's worst environmental disaster ever. Well let's skip delicately over Bophal and think back to another even bigger spill in the Gulf. In 1979 the Pemex well Ixtoc 1 hit a gas pocket and spilled an estimate 3.5 million gallons of crude into the gulf (Chris Cragg - Contributing Editor, European Energy Review Top letter under the heading BP and Corporate Responsibility) That leak took nine months to cap.

The difference here is that while the much aligned Carter administration just collaborated with the experts in trying to do what needed to be done, Obama is trying to politicise the whole thing and turn it into a Brit bashing exercise. Poor Obie, half literate, half educated is off the pace as usual. It is over a decade since the British government sold its golden share and BP stopped being British Petroleum and became a global brand owned by financial institutions that truly exist only in the uberwald of global business.

All the major oil companies – including BP – are obsessed with safety. They have offices and laboratories full of highly trained and vastly experienced personnel who work on nothing else.

The history of the oil industry is punctuated by disasters: Exxon Valdez, Piper Alpha, Texas City. The history of modern aviation is also punctuated by disasters, too numerous to mention and far more costly in casualties. When a plane crashes, no one suggests that flying should be banned. It would be equally absurd to cease drilling because Barack Hussein Obama thinks it might in the short term put a few points on his poll ratings or at least slow the decline.

We hope this is a total fabrication because BP, already in trouble for the Deepwater Horizon oil rig's exploding and millions of gallons of crude oil leaking into the Gulf of Mexico from the uncapped well, may not be able to withstand a new crisis while Barack Obama is clutching at straws in his efforts to save his failed Presenency.

Time is NOT real: Physicists show EVERYTHING happens at the same time

The concept of time is simply an illusion made up of human memories, everything that has ever been and ever will be is happening RIGHT NOW. That is the theory according to a group of esteemed physicists who aim to solve one of the universe’s mysteries.
Most people do not even consider the concept of time but there is nothing in the laws of physics to state that it should move in the forward direction that we know. The laws of physics are symmetric ultimately meaning that time could have easily moved in a backward direction as it does forward. Indeed some adherents to the ‘big crunch’ theory say time WILL run backwards when the universe stops expanding and starts contracting back in on itself.
