Ocean Energy Institute Founder Says New Hurricane Will Require Gulf Evacuation
The U.S. National Hurricane Center has warned that a weather system near Cuba, centered between islands of Acklins and Great Inagua, may move into the Gulf of Mexico this weekend, reports Bloomberg this morning. “I am still worried about how it will move the oil slick into the coastal areas of Louisiana and Mississippi,” meteorologist Jim Rouiller said.
In response to the approach of the tropical cyclone, BP workers in the Gulf of Mexico have stopped drilling a relief well and are preparing to evacuate, reports the BBC. On Wednesday, National Incident Commander Thad Allen said a tropical storm in the area could push back the timetable 10 to 14 days.
Matthew Simmons, founder of the Ocean Energy Institute, told Bloomberg on Wednesday that a leak near the Deepwater Horizon site may require an evacuation of the Gulf coast if a hurricane strikes the area. “Some five to ten miles away is what the NOAA research vessels have proved is a deep oil leak that is growing by the day and it is very toxic oil and its gases are very lethal and basically if we have a hurricane now we need to evacuate the Gulf coast,” Simmons said.
Simmons also said BP has covered up the severity of the oil gusher and if they had told the truth “they would all go to jail.”
As Infowars.com reported on June 24, Matthew Simmons is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and subscribes to the Club of Rome’s Limits to Growth propaganda. He is also a proponent of Peak Oil, the scarcity theory exploited by globalists to push for depopulation and a systematic dismantling of modern civilization.
In response to the approach of Hurricane Alex in late June, Simmons predicted an evacuation of the Gulf states. “Can you imagine evacuating 20 million people?… This story is 80 times worse than I thought.”
Hurricane Alex was the first tropical cyclone to form in the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season. The storm attained hurricane status on June 30 as it approached northeastern Mexico. It did not significantly impact the oil gusher zone in the Caribbean and struck near Soto la Marina in Mexico as a Category 2 hurricane.
