Deep Horizons Exposed - The Untold Story of How BP and the Oil Industry Have Poisoned Waters in N. America


DEEP HORIZONS EXPOSED - SYNOPSIS
This book is the insider’s view of how the oil industry has betrayed our trust, misusing and leaving toxic the land and water resources of North America. The source of this untold story is a geologist turned environmentalist with over 30 years experience in the oil and gas industry. During his career he witnessed the Santa Barbara oil well blowout and spill in 1969, also drilling wells in South Texas in 1979 when the IXTOC 1 Mexican blowout, largest in history, gushed oil onto Texas beaches.
His insights provide the facts needed to understand the causes of these disasters. As the book unfolds you trace the uncanny similarities between these wells and BP’s latest catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico.
Lincoln was born in the shadow of the oil derricks in Los Angeles. At age 17 Mr. Lincoln was recruited by UNOCAL to shore up the image of the then most hated company in the U.S. after they fouled the beaches of Santa Barbara. Part of Lincoln's hometown eventually became a superfund site of toxic oily waste and his first job site became a toxic waste no-man’s-land where farmers are prohibited by law from planting food crops.
He grew up feeling the earthquakes, most likely triggered by rapid subsidence due to the withdrawal of oil gas and water from those same oil fields.
At age 20 Lincoln found himself alone on an offshore platform operating 35 producing wells in 150 feet of water while struggling to keep oil off the coast of Huntington Beach, California. Later, he worked the oilfields at the mouth of the Mississippi River, watching as the oil companies turned the wetlands into Swiss cheese for their dredged drilling canals. His twelve years as a well-site geologist and manager in the Gulf Coast gave him a unique perspective on the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster.
Join him in a personal journey traveling from one oiled landscape and seascape to the next, leading inevitably to the biggest U.S. environmental disaster of our time.
Lincoln asks the tough questions and provides some surprising solutions based on his knowledge of how the oil industry really operates behind the scenes. Along the way, he reveals the truth about BP’s other disasters in Texas and Alaska and shows how BP operated like a teenager with their first car. Both, he argues take too many chances, blaming everyone else when the accident happens; both deserve to lose their operator’s license.
Disgusted with the oil industry Lincoln turned his back on promises of life long benefits in 1996, returning to the US to work for Greenpeace.
Through case histories and personal experiences he goes behind the facade of the optimistic projections to reveal the actual risks the oil companies routinely take with your health and your heritage. The three-ring circus BP ran for the media’s attention and the public’s entertainment is exposed as a sham to divert people from the real dangers below.
The authors probe beneath the surface of the decision to use dispersants, detailing not only the financial ties, but the real risks of using these two poisons indiscriminately. The outcome, they warn, will be even larger dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico.
In this book you see for the first time close-up, satellite images of the devastation the oil industry leaves in its wake. Learn the ground truthing. Punch up the coordinates on Google Earth and explore for yourself BP's true legacy. It puts an end to industry propaganda and exposes the lies for all to see.
H2Oil Cover-up exposes the toxic effects of oil and Produced Water, the dirty little secret of the oil and gas industry did not want you to know about. In the U.S. Alone, this stream of toxic waste generates at least 30 million barrels of oily Produced Water waste per day from nearly 1 million wells. Roughly 1000 times more pollution than the BP Blowout (est. 30,000 barrels of oil per day.)
It was happening before your eyes and you did not know.
We are losing more than you ever imagined. If the Gulf teaches us anything it will be that the environment is one asset we can't afford to lose. Read the book, it is your lifeline to environmental sanity.

 

WERE YOU POISONED IN TULARE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA???

Have you or your family been poisoned from the water you drink or the air you breathe? How would you know? Let’s review the recent evidence so you can decide the health risks for yourself. First we will look at the occurrence of chronic diseases in Tulare County which could be an indication of environmental exposure.

TULARE COUNTY DISEASES: (2003-2007)

1. Infant Mortality and birth defects – Tragically, Tulare County had one of the highest death rates from birth defects) in the state. This was the leading cause of infant death in the county in 2005. This is well above the national average as is the rate of miscarriage and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
2. Liver disease – The County had a very high death rate from liver diseases in the same period.
3. Diabetes – The County had an elevated risk of death from diabetes compared to the rest of California.
4. Cervical Cancer – Death was high for women in Tulare County and much of the San Joaquin Valley.
5. Childhood Chronic Diseases- In 2007, the percentage of children with at least one long-term, chronic condition in Tulare County was 16%-19% which was high throughout the San Joaquin Valley compared to California and the U.S. The cause for the childhood cancer cluster in Earlimart was never conclusively determined.
Next we will review the types of contaminants which could be contributing to the high rate of some chronic diseases in Tulare County. More
