Millions of listeners heard on the popular Coast to Coast Am radio show recently that the BP oil gusher is a planet killer. Talk show host Ian Punnett welcomed two guests, Jim Bell during the second hour and Minister Lindsey Williams in the 3rd hour, for a discussion on the Gulf oil crisis as well as alternative energy. In the second hour, Minister Lindsey Williams, who once served as a chaplain for the oil companies operating in Alaska, shared what he claimed to be the "real story" behind the Gulf oil crisis. He explained that, in the 1970's, Russia drilled over 40,000 feet into the ground and discovered abiotic oil, i.e. oil which replenishes itself via an as-yet-unknown natural chemical process. The off-shore drilling done by BP in the Gulf of Mexico, Williams said, was their attempt to create a similar super-deep well and access this same abiotic oil. However, according to his sources, BP insiders and U.S. Government officials the pressure from this pocket of abiotic oil in the Gulf was so great that it burst all the safety valves on the floating platform.
Williams went on to allege that oil industry insiders believe that the only method to stop the flow of oil in the Gulf is via a nuclear device and even that has potential for catastrophic results. Bell, who rejoined the conversation in the fourth hour, agreed with Williams about the potential danger of using a nuke to thwart the gusher because it could "pop the bubble" and cause all of the underground oil to emerge simultaneously. On the potential long term effects of the crisis if the flow of oil is not stopped, Bell speculated that it could reach Europe within three years through the Gulf Stream.
Additionally, Williams observed that the overwhelming amount of dangerous gasses, which are also being released from the disaster, could be swept along the East Coast should a hurricane arrive in the Gulf. Williams stated that those same dangerous pollutants are in the air in alarming amounts and getting more dangerous everyday. He further indicated that the oil pressure coming up the oil deep water pipe was running between 20,000 and 70,000 PSI. Last night on the Coast to coast Am show Science Advisor Richard C. Hoagland commented on the oil gusher in the Gulf. He warned listeners that an even worse catastrophe could be looming if a giant gas bubble that has formed at the site of the leak on the ocean floor should blow. Hoagland said the pressure in the pipe is 100,000 or more lbs of pressure per squire inch or PSI. Both agreed that BP nor anyone else knows how to shop this amount of pressure coming from the largest and deepest underwater oil well on earth.
Williams said "that the dangers from this run away well is a planet killer and we may not be able to stop it." Mankind could be doomed.
Bell, who calls himself an "ecological designer," blamed the oil gusher on a corporate culture which focuses on making a profit by way of "taking short cuts" that, ultimately, result in situations such as the one in the Gulf of Mexico. He put forward the notion that the ideal scenario to break free of corporate controlled energy is to aggressively pursue efficient solutions which would make the transition away from oil easier and faster. Using solar power as an example, he theorized that, with good leadership, it would take about 40 years for such a transition to take place.
According to writer Jose Lugo in the movie Armageddon, there was a scene where Steve Buscemi who played the part of a reluctant-hero-astronaut and while sitting and waiting for liftoff, he uttered a profound philosophical statement;
"Hey Harry, you know we're sitting on 4 million pounds of fuel, one nuclear weapon and a thing that has 270,000 moving parts built by the lowest bidder, makes you feel good doesn't it"?
In the movie, this statement was made by an oil drilling roughneck to other roughnecks; but it says so much about the oil business and today's corporate culture. It's the reckless, do it quick, cheap and dirty routine.
Lugo went on to say that the Gulf of Mexico oil gusher disaster is a case in point. The disaster started with an explosion that nobody was ready for. Then the oil companies (BP and Transatlantic) discovered that they had absolutely "NO PLANS" to handle the unfolding disaster, they had to think things up as they went along. They had only one shut off station in one location, that malfunctioned! Reckless, quick, cheap and dirty!
Williams said that the amount of oil gushing from the well is much greater than BP and the amount the Government is reporting as only one million gallons a day. Both guests surmised that the more accurate amount gushing from the well is in the millions of barrels. Why didn't they have shut off valves along the pipe line? They did but all the system was overwhelmed by the great pressure of the blow out.
But the most anguishing question remains, "Why didn't they have a back-up plan?" Things happen in the ocean--hurricanes, sinking ships, equipment breakdowns, Murphy's Law etc.. Why didn't they have plans for these possible disasters? Because no commercial company has ever drilled that deep before this is a super-deep well with a mile of sea water on top of it. The pressures alone at those depths are enormous and may have contributed to the failures.
During the program it come out that there are multiple holes in the pipe and that more oil is gushing from fissures as far away from the well head as 20 miles.
Hoagland said that at the sea bed at the well for miles around it is a bubble and it is growing, believed to be pressure from a huge natural gas build up that could blow at any time and kill many there and in the general area working to stop the rush of the largest out of control oil leak that man has ever known.

LAST NIGHT ON COAST TO COAST AM , RICHARD C. HOAGLAND, CITING INSIDER SOURCES IN BP AND IN U.S. GOVERNMENT, SAID THAT A GAS BUBBLE APPROXIMATELY 15-20 MILES ACROSS 10+ FEET HIGH NEAR THE WELL HEAD OF THE BP GULF WELL , HAD FORMED AND THAT IT MAY CAUSE A MASSIVE EXPLOSION WITHIN WEEKS OR MONTHS...
Pictured is "Amber Waves Of Oil" ...HE SAID THAT THE PRESSURE AT THE WELL WAS 100,000 PSI AND THAT WHEN THE GAS EXPLODES , IT WOULD BE LIKE A MT. ST. HELENS GOING OFF UNDERWATER THAT WOULD CREATE A HUGE TSUNAMI THAT WOULD TRAVEL AT 400-600 MPH , SINK ALL VESSELS WITHIN MILES, DRIVE THE OIL , HAZARDOUS DISPERSANTS, AND GASSES INLAND WITHIN MINUTES.
HE DESCRIBED FLORIDA MAY IN FACT GET THE BRUNT OF IT WHEN IT BLOWS THOUGH OTHER STATES WOULD BE AFFECTED AS WELL AND THAT THE PEOPLE ALONG THE GULF HAD BETTER BE TOLD BY THE U.S. GOVERNMENT SOON AS IT IS LIKELY THAT THE GOVERNMENT WILL NEED TO EVACUATE THEM TO PROTECT THEM FROM THE MASSIVE EXPLOSION AND TSUNAMI AS WELL AS THE HEALTH HAZZARDS OF THE OIL, DISPERSANTS, AND GASSES. HE WAS HIGHLY CRITICAL OF OBAMA DOWN THERE EATING SEAFOOD AND PROMISING A CLEAN-UP , WHILE IT SHOULD BE TREATED AS A WAR SITUATION. HE CONCURS THAT WITH THE ABIOTIC POSSIBILITIES THAT IF THIS BLOWS THAT OIL COULD FLOW FOREVER.
THIS IS ANOTHER SLANT ON WHY AN EVACUATION OF 40 MILLION PEOPLE ALONG THE GULF IS PROBABLY GOING TO HAPPEN SOON.

So is Asperger’s “cool” now? Is it merely geek chic, the undiagnosed condition that may have afflicted Mozart and Einstein? Not if you ask the thousands of people who struggle every day to function at work and school in a society that may view them as quirky, but doesn’t really understand how difficult it is to exist when you are, essentially, always speaking a foreign language. Or is it more likely that people share (even in some small way) the suspicion that this is all just a trendy camouflage...
This week, as a major breakthrough in mapping autism’s genetic links was announced, it’s more pressing than ever. Turning to original sources may be the best route to enlightenment.

I had a very difficult lonely life socially, emotionally, and academically. I was not diagnosed as being Autistic until 2006. Most influence and education in my life is credited to the media, and my Brother Richard. His interests included The Beatles, Star Trek, and politics. Since a little boy, my interests have been in communication, Science, Advertising art and design. I completed a 675 hour course in Computer Programming on 9/11/81. Colleges attended, were S.U.N.Y. @ Farmingdale, and Borough of Manhattan C. C. I Graduated from Fiorello H. LaGuardia C. C. of C.U.N.Y. in 1987. I earned an A.A.S. in Computer Information systems. Odie Zephron was a Whippet/Sheppard mix, adopted in 1987. Marriage was to Laurie Neil Vaiana, via the Star Trek Fan club, on 7/18/92. Richard was Best Man.
I was living in Queens since John Lennon’s death on 12/7/1979. I worked at Fortunoff* and Hoffritz for Cutlery (defunct). I purchased 2 cooperative apartments. The first was a 2.5 room studio in Rego Park in 1986. The second, in 1992, was a 3.5 room in Bellerose with Laurie and Odie. After renting out my former home to problem tenants a few years, I sold my shares, to instead own one home free and clear.
Jobs included Computer Operations Clerk, Driving Instructor, Bank Teller, Cashier, Pizza delivery, and Retail Counselor. Longest employers of 2-3 years included Manufacturers Hanover Bank, Bed Bath, & Beyond, and Circuit City*. I purchased my first brand new car, 1999 Escort. I resigned these 2 jobs to work at Gateway* and The Wiz*, who closed their stores within two years. He missed his last day at The Wiz, flying to Florida. Mother died days later on 9/19/2002. This was during my separation (divorced 5/9/03). I brought Odie to die on 6/3/04 with Richard. A buyer for the one-B.R. was found at the end of 2004. The losses of these three, once-greatest friends, jobs, & leaving NY, provided great empowerment & relief. I started www.andrewlerner.blogspot.com.
On 01/05/05, I sold my only home, and drove to Florida near Orlando. My current two-bedroom, two-bath condominium in Lake Mary, was purchased in cash, on 5/31/05. The second bedroom was rented out during my longest employer, at a call center one mile away. During that time, I was empowered by finding my Aspie identity. I am now pursuing my 35 year interest in Graphic Design. On 12/01/08 my nemesis father, and greatest economic benefactor, died alone near my sister in Florida. “I met my last Roommate, the previous month, from Craigs-List and Convergys. After 3.5 years, I was laid off from Convergys on 02/23/09. *Fortunoff and Circuit City close during this time.
I continue to receive Unemployment benefits. I am further taking advantage of the Stimulus bill, Pell Grant and inheritance. I replaced with brand new, the following: my furniture, refrigerator, wardrobe, 2010 RAV4, added 2 PCs, 3HDs, Colbert Cat, joined gym, + hired personal trainer. I have found LOVE in FLOrida, and also by adding a _VE below FL. I married my Roommate on 02/02/10. Richard was the only non-Floridian to attend our wedding.
I am currently in college towards a Bachelors degree, to pursue my first career. 56 jobs at age 52 is too much. This is also due to the persecution, discrimination, and intolerance suffered throughout life, due to Asperger’s Syndrome. I have never felt so secure and confident, and had as many good friends, as I do now. Ironically, Convergys continues to provide me money, insurance, and my best friends. My wife was released from Convergys 6/4/10.
My name is in, and I use, “A.LtERNativE Reasoning.” (alternative reasoning) Being AutiStic, I ASPIrE to LeArn the fundamentals, that Neuro-Typical people ASsume known. My interaction is not like YOU THINK. Help keep A in Lerner. I am not an Alien SPecIEs. LeArner is Fitting in and standing out. AS an Aspie, I have a unique perspective, and am A LERNER different
