Intellihub – Today Matt Simmons, one of the largest investment bankers in the energy industry appeared on Bloomberg. The chairman of Simmons & Co. INTL went on to explain that there is much more to the oil leak than the news has been reporting. Last Sunday, National Underwater Labs sponsored by NOAA confirmed reports of a second fissure about 5-7 miles from the original. This new fissure appears to be releasing a plume the size of Delaware and Maryland combined! He went on to state that “the plume from the riser is minor thing… the best estimate is about 120,000 barrels of oil per day”.
Simmons is quoted as saying, “Obama could remove BP today… tell BP it is time to leave”. Some questions were also brought up that pertained to a nuclear device and how the military could lower one 18,000 feet into the well bore.
Simmons went on to say ” Such techniques have been used by the Russians on several different occasions”.
Also worth noting is that there appears to be a gigantic lake of oil now lingering below the ocean surface around 3000 feet deep.
Keep in mind Simmons is an investment banker connected to energy financing. It looks as if he has done a thorough job in explaining what is to come from the Obama administration. A very important question has been passed up on by countless media talking heads; Where is FEMA and what have they been so busy planning?
