The Gulf's Endless Oil Eruption: 120,000 Barrels Per Day

Oil Industry expert Matt Simmons states that the Thomas Jefferson research vessel has compiled data that quantifies the leak at 120,000 barrels per day!

The Jefferson research vessel reports the presence of a growing submerged "oil lake" that could be covering up to 40% of the entire Gulf of Mexico.

Simmons states the leak has no casing, a relief well will not work, and the only way to stop the oil flow is to use a small nuclear explosion to close the earth's strata...

"I think basically we now know a whole lot of better information from the scientists who are totally disputing what BP’s story has been.

What the Thomas Jefferson found in a week is the most specific information we know. Basically 1100 meters below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico is a 300 - 400 meter lake of very heavy oil that has spreading so fast that it’s covering potentially 40% of the Gulf of Mexico.

They’re actually now predicting that it’s 120,000 barrels a day. But more importantly, they are almost certain, because of the lack of being able to detect where to well bore was, because they can’t get within three miles of it because there’s too much fire, there’s no metal there so the casing’s gone. With no casing it’s an open hole and the only way we’ll ever put it out is by detonating something that will fuse the rock right above the oil column into glass. And the only way that anyone’s ever done that is the four times the Soviets did that in the seventies with a very small bore nuclear device.

So I think that’s now our only option."
