Surface fracturing is something experts said would not happen in Bayou Corne. They were wrong. But they have labeled this an environmental nightmare and 'new science' because they have never seen anything this bad before.
It is not new science, it is just blindness and the lack of knowledge is staggering frankly.
Salt introduced to water, will erode. A salt cavern flooded with water will collapse and what is more when things below the surface collapse, things above the surface will be compromised and collapse as well.
This is not rocket science, this is first grade science, yet the experts were not aware of this because, frankly , there is big money to be made from exploiting the earth and money can create deep, dark blindness. The old phrase, 'blind greed' is apt here.
For a few years now tap water has been igniting up to 4 miles from the sinkhole site. Now surface fracturing and tidal water movement in the hole are upping the ante for disaster at Bayou Corne.
The latest news includes the surface fracturing, tidal water movement on the surface of the Bayou and now more tremors .
As of April 1,2015 work had to be stopped because of the tremors. It is becoming too dangerous.
