Solution to Gulf Oil Blowout: Bring on the Sun

Opinion from geologist Chris Landau:

Bring on the sun.

For too long we have lived under the oily depths of deceit. We have fought wars and killed millions in order to pollute our lives and those of our children. We have called it patriotism. We have called it progress. We have not stopped to think.

It is not too late. The gulf no longer divides us. We are no longer blind. They no longer rule us. Change has come.

We need more sunlight for the Gulf of Mexico. Bring on the heat to break up the oil.

Ultra violet light is one of the great disinfectants of the world. As the cloud cover reduces over the Gulf of Mexico, the sunlight will begin to break down the oil. As this occurs, the murky smothering effect of the oil industry will begin to fade. It will be a long hard battle, fought with surf, wind and light. Aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, our allies, will do battle to clean the scourge.

I can see clearly now. The oil is gone.

The new soldiers stand in line. They stand square. They face the sun. They stand patiently. They work quietly and cleanly. They make our world hum. Let us embrace them.

The old oily way is done. The oil industry will help build the new. It is our right to ask. It is their gift to help clean the world. Let them step forward. The new bright order has arrived. We can breathe again.

Solar is the way. Stand together. Our future is bright. We have found the way. Let us bridge the gulf.

The time is now.

Bring on the sun.

Bio for Chris Landau

Chris Landau writes:

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 woman. 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 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, page 17.
The other was to The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) in October 2009. See, 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.
