Billy_001Plaquemines Parish Louisiana is a World Class Fishing Destination. The mighty Mississippi River in Plaquemines Parish is the Gateway to the Gulf of Mexico, this area is fed by an abundance of water making our fishing habitats some of the best in the world. Plaquemines is also home to over 78 fresh and saltwater lakes and is spread out over hundreds of miles of coastline. You can fish anywhere, but you catch fish in Plaquemines Parish. The Plaquemines Tourist Board. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill (also referred to as the BP oil spill, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill or the Macondo blowout) is a massive ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, now considered the largest offshore spill in U.S. history.Some estimates placed it by late May or early June as among the largest oil spills in the world with tens of millions of gallons spilled to date. The spill stems from a sea floor 10,000 foot deep oil gusher (MC252) that followed the April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon drilling rig explosion. The explosion killed 11 platform workers and injured 17 others. The gusher, now estimated by the quasi-official Flow Rate Technical Group to be flowing at 20,000 to 40,000 barrels (840,000 to 1,700,000 US gallons; 3,200,000 to 6,400,000 litres) of crude oil per day, originates from a deepwater wellhead 5,000 feet (1,500 m) below the ocean surface. The exact spill flow rate is uncertain in part because BP has refused to allow independent scientists to perform accurate measurements and is a matter of ongoing debate. The resulting oil slick covers a surface area of at least 2,500 square miles (6,500 km2), with the exact size and location of the slick fluctuating from day to day depending on weather conditions.

Dr. O’Leary, Ph.D., is a scientist-philosopher with fifty years of experience in academic research, teaching and government service in frontier science and energy policy.  He was a NASA scientist-astronaut during the Apollo program, the first to be selected for a planned Mars mission, and participated in unmanned planetary missions as an Ivy League professor.

Brian’s latest book, “The Energy Solution Revolution”, describes the enormous potential of breakthrough clean energy technologies, their suppression and their logical necessity for our survival.  Zero-point (vacuum) energy, cold fusion, and advanced hydrogen and water chemistry could provide us all an abundant future for all of humanity.

In 2004, he and his wife, the artist Meredith Miller, moved to the Andes in Ecuador, where they co-created Montesuenos – an eco-retreat and educational center dedicated to creativity and the rights of nature.
