My point here is that I know that there is a tremendous amount of oil and gas at greater depths and it is not brought onto line because the drilling companies have not been that successful at controlling high pressure gas and oil.

Stop drilling oil wells into fault zones

I left the oil business in early 2007 and am glad I did. I was only involved for a year and a half and that was a lifetime for me. I would like to see every well in the world closed. Oil is a toxic carcinogenic compound and it is being spread around the world and killing the planet. Oil drilling should stop for everybody's sake. Maybe man can then find a new cleaner energy source to fight and kill for. At least we save the environment. Who can save man from man?

I would like to stop the insane drilling for oil and pumping of oil that is taking place off the coast of Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. Al these wells are being sunk into one of the world's biggest fault zones that can clearly be seen in Google satellite photos. It is a 3000 mile fault zone crossing the Pacific Ocean and going on shore. You can see it by putting Santa Barbara into Google search, selecting satellite viewing mode in the top right hand corner and panning out until you see the size of this fault zone which is as long as the US is wide. It is 30 miles wide and because the bedrock is fractured here, the oil leaks out naturally at a slow rate and has done so from the time of the early Spanish Explores. The Native American used to use the tar to water proof their boats. The slow leak is good as it means the fault is full and sliding smoothly. When you remove the oil, you lock the tectonic plates and cause earthquakes (for those earthquakes at 7 miles and shallower.)

Vandenberg Air Force Base

I wonder if you have any contacts at Vandenberg Air Force Base. They could be warned to take a look at the geology and satellite maps for themselves, before the pumping and drilling for oil here triggers this gigantic fault zone and causes massive tsunamis and earthquakes. The fault is obvious to any school boy doing earth science today and is even on globes of the world sold since about 1990 showing bathymetry features under the water. My articles that I began writing in March 2010 have been published on line by The Santa Barbara News Press, The Ventura Star, Op-ed News and others.

I am hoping to avert another ecological crisis on the west coast. As Vandenberg will also be hit by the natural disaster of the earthquake and tsunami, I was hoping that they might want to use their influence to stop the oil and gas drilling and pumping of oil and to shut the oil wells down permanently. I also wrote an article which began, "Dear Goldman Sachs and BP"" These are some of the GREY MEN making the huge profits. Win of lose, they are always on top. They keep a low profile, let the others get the flack and quietly pocket the profits. Huge profits require huge volatility and uncertainty. What better way to make a profit than stir up controversy?

It seems an insane thing to do to deliberately drill into an active fault zone. My published articles can be found by putting in Chris Landau oil or earthquakes and my technical publications can be found on line and though the American Institute of Professional Geologists and The Association of Engineering and Environmental Geologists.

Good luck on sales for your book." War is a Racket." You should make it required reading matter for kids at school to make them think three times before going to be a pawn in somebody else's money game(war) They need to question things early not to be manipulated. War, who benefits? Who makes a pile of loot?

Sincerely

Chris Landau
