PORT AND COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OFFERING FREE FISH FRY TO THE POOR
 
In response to the devastation of Red Ride caused by endless pollution from the oil and gas industry and nitrates from fertilizers moving down the Mississippi, The Port of Brownsville Commissioners and Cameron County Commissioners are offering the poor an opportunity to go pick up all of the dead fish they want.  It's a commissioners' give away to feed the poor in hopes of getting votes.
 
JUST HOW BIG DOES THE DEAD ZONE HAVE TO GET BEFORE CARLOS MASSO AND SOFIA BENVIDES GET IT - NO MORE POLUTION.  IT IS WELL PAST THE TIME FOR BOTH TO COME OUT AGAINST LNG

Here is an idea, until the Red Tide passes Carlos Masso and Sofia Benavides should have to camp out on beach access 5 and live with the smell.  Let's see if they can defend it then.  I bet neither would last more than 5 minutes.

You know I am a man of faith who believes God has his way, and maybe this Red Tide is just a nudge from God to help the anti-LNG people along with their argument.

Are the dead zone and the red tide related? Just asking?

BobbyWC said...

According to these article and many more the answer is yes.

But the science is driven by opposing sides so then you will get opposing views. However during this past year once the problem developed in Iowa's water supply those saying no to the correlation to nitrogen all of a sudden changed their mind and now even in Iowa they are fighting to reduce nitrogen. It is also tied to petro chemicals. Remember oil and gas are filled with nitrogen

Typical % of nitrogen in Natural gas although it differs in any different sample ranges from 1 to 2 %.
I would hardly call that "filled" .

I'm not saying that the oil and gas industry is not in some way partially responsible for the Mississippi river plume, but your Science does not prove out and most people are not smart enough to know it. So stop the disinformation and use facts not opinions.
It just makes you look like any other misinformed zealot..

First of all you are a con artist and a liar. I made it clear the science in controverted - honest people call this being honest and engaging in full disclosure.

And the science which so seem to embrace is wrong. the nitrogen levels are a lot higher.

The question is how much nitrogen brings about the problem - the answer is simple. How much sugar causes a diabetic coma - well maybe one lollipop will not, but many inputs of sugar through many sources will.

LNG is just one of many factors raising the nitrogen level - your vies is simple such as is expected of a con artist - well its just one lollipop - while forgetting you already drank three gallons of soda and ate a dozen donuts.

The first reference to red tide in the New World seems to have been made by Columbus. On one of his voyages he describes a condition that is believed to be red tide. I don't know what causes a red tide bloom but in the late 1400's I suspect it wasn't caused by human produced pollution. By the way, red tide kills fish and other organisms through the production of a neurotoxin. The dead zone in the upper Gulf lacks oxygen. Red tide is an unfortunate but natural occurrence "dead zone" is not.
I know you don't like differing views so feel free to call me any names you like but everything I wrote is factual.

Really your science is the observation of Columbus who had no scientific means to determine what he saw. Cortes wrote of giants. Other conquistadors wrote of great empires in the amazon which soil cannot sustain large farming.

This is issue in both cases is nitrogen - the science is simple - you just do not like it.

Further, oil has been leaking from the ocean floor since the beginning of time. So why would it shock you leaking oil from the ocean floor might cause a red surface on the ocean even a million years ago.

Deal with the science and stop acting ignorant. You were wrong about nitrogen content so now you turn to Columbus who may have seen oil which leaked from the ocean floor - we have no way of knowing what he saw or what caused it - but of course you do

For someone who claims to be a world champion reader your comprehension is poor. I have noticed though that it is much easier to read fast when you don't worry about understanding what you are reading.
I never said Columbus conducted scientific tests. I said he described a condition that is believed to have been red tide. I don't recall mentioning Cortez or the Amazon. Those are just distractions
Nitrogen and red tide? Stick to something you do understand. This isn't it.

BobbyWC said...

I never said you said any of those things - I was just pointing out the absurdity of you mentioning Columbus.

I strongly agree with you that this is a travesty and must stop NOW. I do not find it fair that you are singling out Masso and Benavides. Let us not forget that there are three of the Navigation District Board Members up for re-election. The self imposed leader of the pack, Ralph Cowen,who has traveled the world on the tax payers dime; Sergio Lopez and John Reed, the ports "yes men" are up and are running as a slate! Hopefully somebody competent can throw their hat in there and unseat these 3!
