    You could have explained the above more clearly in the op.....consider you audience.

    It is not my job to educate. It is my job to inform. it is not my issue you missed my point in the OP.

    How much is from Natural Seepage and not the Deepwater Horizon Spill?

    I do not know but I would love for you to pay me to find out. I can probably have "something" of an answer for you for a cool $1.5 million study. :)

    Don't worry, he will return with an affirmation of his respect and thanks for your opinion.

    You dabble in organic geochemistry?

    I think you better make that $2.5M and route it over here. TYVM

    :rotflmao You may have me confused with someone else.....take a look at my post #11 of this thread. :wink

    No I don't dabble in geochem, but I can sure project manage a bunch of nerd who do. You have the university mark-up in your number. This is a competitive marketplace. If you want to subcontract a piece of the project give me a quote. If not that's fine, I am sure I can find a geo chemist or five in TX, CO or WY that will be helpful. I'm happy with my number, I will stick with it. :grin

    I have friends that dabble in geochemistry, actually that is their business, oil eating microbes. we were discussing the advantage of using them over corext before the oil rig disaster

    Corexit caused an Oil Spill?

  • They will never take you seriously if you only ask for $1.5. for that they will have their retained consultant do it for $12 mill and subcontract all the work to you as a small business for your $1.5.



    Oh then the consultant buys the purchasing engineer a house in Key West as a Christmas present

    That's cool. I'll sub an let them take the liability, as long as I get my $1.5M. Now about the second bold sentence. Probably more truth to that than most here want to believe or will admit. Amazing to me how biz gets done in FL.

    Another serious topic reduced to chuckles and assgrabbing. :rolleyes
  • WaterEngineerWaterEngineer Posts: 24,412 AG
    I tried but no one wanted to keep it serious, I guess. I was going to put it in Conservation, but no one would have seen it there.

    There's too much "drill, baby, drill" stupidity on here along with Obama hate.
  • CalusaCalusa Posts: 11,874 AG
    There is also an abundance of members who have been very vocal proponents of drilling off Florida's Gulf coast so they can finally catch fish from a barrel. And now that they've seen a hideous demonstration of what happens when their beloved fishing hole takes a dump, they do not have the guts to admit they have been wrong and that their stupid pride is more important to them than asking for some truthful answers and demanding further cleanup.

    So, you're saying Oil Seepage into the Gulf of Mexico is not serious? Or, is it only 'serious' when 'man' causes it?

    Our very own Government places this 'Natural Seepage' at 600,000 to 1.2 million barrels per year into the GOM. Deep Water Horizon released, what, 4.7 million Barrels into the Gulf? Looks like natural Seepage has added another 2-3 million Barrels to the Gulf since DWH was Capped in 2010.

    So again, was it Oil from Deep Water Horizon, or Natural Seepage?

    This is the same Government that lies to and me every single day of our life. About things much more serious than this in fact.

    Please, for your own good stop believing the "Government".

    No, I'm saying that only a fool will find a govt statistic somewhere, then believe it.

    Tell me, who is the govt specialist who went underwater to measure this "seepage", and what are his qualifications? How do you suppose this "seepage" level was arrived at? And finally, what does "seepage", which if it even exists is something man cannot control, have to do with a man-made disaster which, according to your government-supplied "seepage" data, spewed 7-8 years worth of "seepage" into the Gulf in one month's time?

    Not put words in my mouth. I said no such thing. Those are your words.

    Now about the last sentence. I answered you in #33. As part of the study grab samples and spectrometric analysis will answer your question.

    You answered nothing in #33. You did make a Failed attempt at 'Cuteness' though.......

    'Studies' have been done. You either know that and are being 'Dishonest', or don't know it and are 'Clueless'. Only you know where the truth lies.........:blowkiss.....

    Actually, it's not a 'Govt Statistic', but that of a Multitude of Scientific Studies. I would think you might do a little 'research' before inserting both Feet into ones Mouth.... Try The National Academies of Science for starters.
