- EU Times Story On 'Toxic Oil Spill Rains'
So, Where's This 'Dire Report'?
Exclusive to Rense.com
- I was sent the following link to read:
- Toxic Oil Spill Rains Warned Could Destroy North America
- I don't bother reading anything from that web site
because a number of "news" items I've back tracked have nothing
to verify the splashy headlines down the road. A lot of noise with drama.
- Here's the claim:
- "A dire report prepared for President Medvedev by
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.
- "A greater danger involving Corexit 9500, and as
outlined by Russian scientists in this report,.."
- Most of the material in the article about disperants,
etc., can be gleaned from reliable sources. But, where is this so called
"dire report" by Russia's Ministry of Natural Resources?
- Why no link to that report which is the meat of the "news"
item? There are links throughout the "news" story, but golly,
the most important one is no where to be found.
- The author of this "news" item reports:
- "The dispersal agent Corexit 9500 is a solvent originally
developed by Exxon and now manufactured by the Nalco
Holding Company of Naperville, Illinois that is four times more
toxic than oil (oil is toxic at 11 ppm (parts per million), Corexit 9500
at only 2.61ppm). In a report written by Anita George-Ares and James R.
Clark for Exxon Biomedical Sciences, Inc. titled "Acute
Aquatic Toxicity of Three Corexit Products: An Overview" Corexit
9500 was found to be one of the most toxic dispersal agents ever developed.
Even worse, according to this report, with higher water temperatures, like
those now occurring in the Gulf of Mexico, its toxicity grows."
- There is a link to the Acute Acquatic Toxicity....but
again, why no link to the "dire report" that leads the story?
- See towards the bottom of the story:
- "Note: For molecules of a liquid to evaporate, they
must be located near the surface, be moving in the proper direction, and
have sufficient kinetic energy
to overcome liquid-phase intermolecular forces. Only a small proportion
of the molecules meet these criteria, so the rate of evaporation is limited.
Since the kinetic energy of a molecule is proportional to its temperature,
evaporation proceeds more quickly at higher temperatures."
- Know where that came from? Not the author who appears
to be very knowledgeable:
- "For molecules
of a liquid to evaporate, they must be located near the surface, be moving
in the proper direction, and have sufficient kinetic
energy to overcome liquid-phase intermolecular forces.
Only a small proportion of the molecules meet these criteria, so the rate
of evaporation is limited. Since the kinetic energy of a molecule is proportional
to its temperature, evaporation proceeds more quickly at higher temperatures."
- So, you see, the author simply plagarized from wikipedia.
No credit was given to wikipedia as the source.
- Nor could I find anything using scroogle.org and
a combination of the words for the "dire report" except the link
above, the official looking EU Times.
- However, close to 40 web sites have picked up the
"story" above and have taken this "dire report" as
- Using just Russia Ministry of Natural Resources oil spill
gulf, it took me to even more web sites linking the "dire report"
from the big con man, David Booth aka Sorcha Faal.
- You'll notice the last two paragraphs of this "news"
item is a lambasting of the American people. Very similar to the spanking
Mexican President Calderon gave to the American people in OUR house last
- At the very bottom of the "news" item at the
link above is the zinger:
- Ah, finally a source for this explosive news story.
- Click on that and it takes you to the source:
- The first headliner is this one:
- "Dirty, Filthy, Christians: Treatise On The Most
Dangerous Death Cult In Human History - "An unprecedented work detailing
the agenda behind the greatest deception ever foisted upon humanity."
- When you click on the 'continued,' well, who would have
guessed -- "Sorcha Faal" one of the biggest hustlers on
the Internet selling his book!
- Click back to find the "real story" about the
oil spill rains and yep, you've got it: David Booth aka Sorcha Faal.
- The master story spinner who makes up his BS, adds some
truth on the side and wha-la! people think this she who is actually a he,
walks on water.
- Without question, the situation down in the gulf is horrific.
The destruction, both environmentally and for humans and businesses is
very, very real to put it mildly. The long term consequences is going to
- I think we should be very concerned that the prediction
for 14 hurricanes coming - the first could hit at any time. We can only
hope the spills (I think there are two locations) are plugged soon.
- I am sick of getting emails that have nothing to
back up the claims. Yellow journalism is a cancer on the Internet.

- I wrote a column about this back in November 1999. I
hope you can take the time to read it because the hustlers are still out
