    The annual hurricane season begins June 1. Experts are predicting a 44% chance that a hurricane could enter the Gulf of Mexico, up from an average of 30%. If that happens we may see a catastrophe unknown to humans. We have never had to deal with a hurricane and an oil spill of this size before and do not know what could happen or how to deal with it.

    A few have tried to say the oil will
    weaken the hurricane by preventing the warm water to vaporize. The problem with this theory is the average hurricane is 300 miles wide. The comparatively puny oil slick will have little effect on the hurricane's ability to draw strength from the warm water and may in fact add to that strength by trapping the heat of the sun which will be released when the hurricane churns the ocean surface.. Here are some possible problems:

    1. The busy hurricane season will slow efforts to cap and clean up the oil spill.

    2. The chemical dispersant bp is using to break up the oil combined with the churning and blowing of the hurricane will break the oil into micro droplets which could easily become airborne resulting in "oil rain" falling far inland.

    3. The hurricane could push the oil into the loop current which will carry it around Florida and up the Atlantic seaboard wreaking havoc as far north as North Carolina.

    4. Mexico will also be affected.

    5. Oil droplets carried inland could contaminate public water, crops and air.

    Milton Friedman stated that , the way to gain power is to give folks so many concurrent shocks, so that while they are tryingto get their bearings,

    BAM!!!!!!!!!! one comes in with a self centered corporate based bill that will hamper individuals freedoms and economic power
    for the sake of corporate interest

    you mean they did not just make bad choices, that they are not really free to become wealthy and powerful:?::SuN049:

    And how many Africans will die because we have not set up reinvestmet plans since the 60s
    as troops from France, Germany, Englan and Belgium are there right now,
    as the Chinese, not the old Chou en Lai Chinese but imperialistic Chang Kai Shek type Chinese
    are there looking to exploit,
    and AFRICOM there waiting for the crumbs from the
    table, while;
    out of 52 nations there is not one gun manufacturer or weapons manufacturer, and not one Black nation owns any nuclear defense?

    Why is history and the science that history repeats itself among ethnicities,
    is such a hard concept to grasp?

    If one will look at this dispassionatly
    one wll see the common thread that when a

    white supremist nation finds itself broke,

    destitute,

    down and out,

    and unable to pay for its own governmental infrastructure

    it goes out and loots and pillages!!!!!!!!!!

    Queen Elizabeth the First , came into a dead BROKE, England

    so what did she do?

    She sent the Masons out as pirates to loot the Spanish, so she could ge tthe chedda to
    ENSLAVE US
    AND THEN GENOCIDE AND COLONIZE THE REST OF THE DARK SKINNED WORLD


    We have stil not seriously thought about, discussed or planned methodologies of collecive self sufficiency,
    or at least a safety net for those in the Black community who will be hardest hit when the economic Katrina hits.
    I see more and more folks using those cards to buy food, have you?

    when the ship wrecks will we be able to feed those brothers and sisters?
    and when do we start to talk about doing that?

    We can be logic and deal with things in a scientific and mathematical way, as our Kemetic forefathers did, or


    we can get emotional and excited;
    the way they like seeing us!

    Closer to home

    When we look at the areas that will be affected by the oil laden hurricanes we see that this is not a white thang: Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, Cuba, Mexico. Oh yes and the po whites that the white power structure doesn't mind sacrificing.

    yeah, they have been doing it that way for about 5900 years; we know what to expect. and we know where things are going. hence, my hopes that they're ready for the "and civilizations fall" part.

    frankly, i've truly been wishin that you'd share some such suggestions. given how widely read you've shown yourself to be what with all the articles you keep sharing with us, i'd figure that by now you'd have some sort of an idea of how to begin some of that?

    like the way you've gotten in this thread? (<whew> i am so glad i turned off colors in this browser!)
