    I think someone at Zmarter scooped you on your own post with their time machine, BR. They gave you credit last week!

    Kindra Arnesan has apparently seen what’s going on inside BP disaster response HQ.

    Methane in Gulf “astonishingly high”: U.S. scientist
    Deepwater spills and short attention spans
    CHICAGO (Reuters) – As much as 1 million times the normal level of methane gas has been found in some regions near the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, enough to potentially deplete oxygen and create a dead zone, U.S. scientists said on Tuesday.

    For those of the “this is just a teaspoon in an ocean” mindset, the article is not taking about PPM (Parts per million). No sir, it’s talking about levels up to a million times higher. This is a very big problem. It’s not just the oxygen depletion that is a concern. The negative logarithm of the hydrogen ion concentration, commonly known as PH, MUST remain in a very tight range in sea water or ALL the higher life forms die. Vertebrate, invertebrate fauna, flora and a host of microscopic life forms die. Granted, certain microbes which can metabolize hydrocarbons and some extremophiles do great.

    Bottom line: High methane concentrations are quite effective in modifying PH in sea water. The dead biota will cause explosive growth in decomposition bacteria. Bloated dead fish and noxious odors will be common until winter in the entire southeast coast. The decomposition bacteria bloom will enable pathogenic bacteria population explosions. Disease causing, opportunistic pathogens will then attack people living along the coast. It’s going to be much worse than the media is predicting. Madison Avenue is not going to make this corporate catastrophy go away. BP doesn’t have the money to resuscitate the entire southeastern US when it totally tanks.

    And you were only worried about a double dip recession/depression? This will give us a depression on steroids.

    Look up what PH changes do to fish in salt water aquariums and how quickly everything dies when the PH gets out of range (it varies – the higher the life form, the more PH sensitive). In humans it’s called acidosis or alkalosis.

    The southeastern US and the gulf states will survive but it won’t be fun to live there. Propert values in parts of the US which are inland and far away from the southeastern tier may see a boom as rich refugees from Florida decide that discretion is the better part of valor.

    Spilled Enough Already

    Seems like a lot of doomsday rhetoric to me. This is a big oil spill, but that’s a big, big pool of water we are talking about.
