Scientist say the Gulf is Recovering Even Better than

Expected and THan what They Predicted.

They say that it is on a Faster Pace to recovery than

What they thought.

The earth will Survive.

Believe Me if thousands of Years of Earthquakes,

Volcanic Eruptions, Droughts, Tornados, Hurricanes,

Ice Ages, and Wars, Haven't destroyed it.

Then Nothing WIll.

Dont fool yourself and think all the animals are going

Die. They will live on just as they have over Millions

Of years. Vegetation Will grow back.

The problem is we are an Instant Gratification Society,

We want things to Happen Now.

We want everything to be Fixed Now.

Nature doesn't work that way.

Nature has always work in Years not in minutes.

Just think about it Millions of Disasters Later,

We are still here. We humans also have an ability

To Survive no matter what Natural Disasters Hit us.

God Bless

The headline should read "Day of Reflection" That's when the lame stream media told us this was a day of apocalyptic destruction of biblical proportions...Give me a break.

Everyone knows that day occurred on November 7, 2008

Too much Tragedy Too many failed Ideas Too much happenstance

How many terrible mistakes, and none has mitigated the over the top pain that we all felt. Seems no one made in any sense while the rig was burning then into the water it went.

So for a time I worked and finally had a plan to stop the oil and gas sent it to BP and the many other play callers involved, but then for 92 days the plan was not used, but then they finally the used it.

So I wept as I thought about all the needles work, the entire Gulf now dying or dead because no one with guts or just common sense was in charge.

But while I set I thought of ways to never have this happen again and out of the time come the Total Fail Safe blowout Container. And it has been patented. So in the next couple of weeks I will meet with Exxon Mobil to sell them the patent. With my ideas on how to build and use on every well being drilled in deep water.

When that patent was finished another idea come along. On in which a product and process would be put together to clean the Gulf of the flumes. Now that one is finished too—my hopes are to move that one too Halliburton it fits their profile. It is called the Dolphin Fin.

To clean the Gulf as it should be will cost about $2 trillion and could take decades or centuries to do so.
