Climate Change in The Gulf of Mexico from the oil slick; Oil Slick Could Cause Drought across the Southern USA.
By Chris Landau
The weather is already changing. Clouds are not forming as readily above the oil slick. Oil Slick Could Cause Drought across the Southern USA. The oil slick from the sunken Transocean owned Deep Water Horizon Rig and BP well is sealing the Gulf of Mexico's sea water and preventing evaporation and clouds from forming.

The oil slick from the sunken Transocean owned Deep Water Horizon Rig and BP well is sealing the Gulf of Mexico's sea water and preventing evaporation and clouds from forming.
Look, at the recent NASA photos. There is a hole in the cloud cover above the oil in the Gulf of Mexico. No clouds mean no evaporation has occurred, which equals no future rain, which means a coming drought.
The oil is sealing the water. Soon the Gulf of Mexico is going to have very quiet waters. We might even get "the painted ship upon the painted ocean" look. I think pouring this much oil onto troubled waters is just getting us into trouble.
It is later than we think. Climate change has arrived within two weeks. This is small but it will spread.
It is urgent that we get new wells drilled around this gusher before; the weather is changed in as little as a month. The American climate could change within a few months.
Can we get some action here?

I was born in South Africa in 1958. I came to the USA with my wife and three daughters in 2003. We became US citizens in 2009 and 2010. My wife Susan is a Special Education English Teacher. She also has a bachelor's degree in Micro anatomy and biochemistry. I have two daughters at university and one at school. I am very lucky to be surrounded by such talented women. They all love creative writing, poetry and cats. I am a vegetarian and enjoy growing trees, vegetables and plants from seed. My interests lie in astronomy, meteorology, geology and biology. In astronomy I am interested in dimensions, the speed of electromagnetic radiation in different density conditions, redshift, magnetism associated with rings of planets and stars, black holes and contracting galaxies and the expansion and contraction of the universe. In September 2010 I presented three new concepts on our Earth, our Sun and the planets and stars that surround us. The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) published my ideas on October4, 2010 on Planetary-Spin heat relationships, Jupiter-Saturn-Solar Tidal-Sunspot coupling and Planetary-Solar alternating magnetic fields. The paper can be found at the AIPG website at: http://www.aipg.org/Meetings/mtg_proceedings/2010annmtg/Landau,%20Chris.pdf In meteorology, my interests lie in long-range hourly weather timing predictions through tidal forces for both convectional and cyclonic rainfall. In geology, my interests are in the inorganic origin of oil, gas and coal, under reducing conditions, through hydrogen sulfide and water acting on carbon dioxide and calcareous formations. My chemical and thermodynamic equations to prove how this occurred have been published. As a geologist, I delivered two peer reviewed presentations to prove the theory, one to the Association of Engineering and Environmental Geologists in 2008 (AEG). See http://www.aegweb.org/files/public/abstracts.pdf, page 17. The other was to The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) in October 2009. See http://www.aipg.org/Meetings/2009%20Annual%20Meeting/2009proceedings.pdf, page 94. These publications include methods of carbon capture that help generate new energy and make carbon dioxide a reusable resource. My other interests are in large-scale earthquake fault lines and the interaction between continental drift and past big meteorite impacts and the unrecognized planetary impact sites. I enjoy growing my own vegetable and fruit crops and hope to be self-sufficient one day. I hope that the world will one day all be vegetarians. I believe we can only truly respect our selves and the other animals if we do not see them as a food source. No human being likes the thought of being eaten by animals. Let us all stop raising domestic animals for food. I would like to see the oil, gas and coal being recycled daily, so no carbon dioxide or other pollutants are released into the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide can be reduced back to methane under reducing conditions. Solar power should be stepped up in a huge way to create clean renewable energy for the world. Desalination of seawater by solar power is the long-term solution to our water needs and our food production. Education to limit global population growth is vital to have sustainable resources for the world and its animals. I hope one day to see the end of war as a profitable business. I hope to provide solutions in a practical and academic fashion. I look forward to mutually beneficial relationships that exploit neither party. Chris Landau April 5 2010.
