Doomsday Tales: True or False?

You've seen them and I've seen them: countless doomsday videos starring conspiracy theorists are forecasting unimaginable catastrophe resulting from the BP Deepwater Horizon fiasco in the Gulf.

True or not, I'm going to "file" them here. In an ideal scenario, we can look back in a month or a year from now and laugh at the disaster that was brought under control. But more likely, we are going to pay for BP's fuck up in a very dear way. Florida evacuation plans. Crack in the Mississippi trench will empty the Great Lakes and kill millions. Yep, doomsday forecasts. At this point, who can absolutely rule out any of it? 

I don't know much about the theorists who insist there's an Illuminati and all that. But it's never dull seeing all kinds of questions be answered by a multitude of passionate theorists. YouTube is ripe and perfect for them. I think we can all believe one thing: BP lied their asses off.
