I heard about this TV docudrama from someone last night who saw it a COUPLE months ago. They were livid.
"You'll never believe what happened in this show! A category 6 hurricane disrupts the oil flow of America. You won't belive where the hurricane hits..."
Oil Storm examines what happens when a Category 6 hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico slams into Louisiana, crushing the city of New Orleans and crippling the vital pipeline for refined oil that is Port Fourchon. It examines the ripple effect of that event and the ensuing cascade of disasters associated with it, through the eyes of public officials, a family in Texas who own a gas station, an EMS worker in Boston who has to deal with a brutal winter, and a ranching family in South Dakota who have their subsidies completely taken away and question whether we need oil or food to survive.

Below is a link to a audio interview with the director of Port Fourchon (pronounced Foo-shawn). The director remarks that the damage to off shore facilities is "substantial". That is what is known from aerial veiws. He expects the damage to be worse once crews can make an assessment from underneath the oil platforms.

Morning Edition, August 31, 2005
Many oil refineries remain engulfed in water along Louisiana's coast. Ted M. Falgout, executive director of Louisiana's Port Fourchon, assesses the condition of the facility and the state of the waterways leading to the port.

"Oil Artery Clog Could Impact U.S."
Sept. 2003

So much to worry about, so little time.

Here’s a whole other reason to toss and turn at night:

Eighteen percent of the entire nation’s energy supply depends on a deteriorating, narrow two-lane road surrounded by water in South Louisiana.

This is the southernmost stretch of Louisiana Highway 1, providing the only land-based access to Port Fourchon, which supports 75 percent of all the deepwater oil and gas production in the Gulf, according to the LA 1 Coalition, comprised of private and public stakeholders intent on saving and improving the roadway.

The Port also is the site of the booster pumps that carry crude oil from the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP) to underground salt dome storage areas in Galliano, along Highway 1.

Even on a good day, water laps close to the edges of this vital strip of concrete roadway, which not so long ago was surrounded by marshland. Besides its crucial role in the country’s energy supply, the highway serves as the hurricane evacuation route for residents in southern Lafourche Parish and Grand Isle, as well as 6,000 offshore oil and gas employees.

Today, it’s a sitting target for the next big hurricane, which can strike at any time during the annual June 1 to November 30 season.

So this has been known to be a potential problem-a likely one at that. You know what makes all this SHIT soooo suspicious? Oil. Oil everywhere. OIL president from an OIL family. Oil in Iraq. Oil prices jumping. Oil, Oil, Oil. Oil. Crucial Oil refineries in Louisiana. Why is that every major disaster that we face in this FUCKED UP country hinges on OIL? 911 pretext for war for OIL. Ruppert's "Crossing the Rubicon". Argh!!!

It's ok, though. Our masters in Washington have NOTHING to do with causing such a storm. It's a coincidence that FX put their movie out just two months before the event actually took place verbatim. It's not like the Lone Gunmen episode that foreshadowed the events of 911 (and came out just a few months before the event) was shown on another network owned by Rupert Murdoch. Right? Well...ok it was-just relax. There is NO such thing as weather modification.......ok, there is. Next peice will be on weather modification.
Screw it.
