Well Cap Causing Seabed to Leak — Engineer

There are cracks in the seafloor leaking, and the pressure tests are revealing that the casing will not hold; it has already been perforated in numerous places.
[This is in contradiction to the latest mainstream press reports that there are no leaks either in the well cap or the sea floor.]
I believe it is time to leave the gulf coast in case the sea floor expands then collapses delivering a tsunami to the region.
There is no way that this device can hold the pressures that are involved with this super-pressurized gas reserve. Advise loved ones to leave the region, now, and for a few days; this well cap poses a much more dangerous situation than they probably know.
How can we get people in the gulf region to watch a couple hours of YouTube (see below) and read all that I have, such that they would come to the conclusion that they are in grave danger?
These nuts deliberately let crude flow through the pipe casing for a long enough time to insure that it is worn and weakened in numerous places, and now they apply a cap, and now they start pressurizing all of the layers of strata in between the oil reservoir and seafloor.
Few know of the existence of a power “group” that rules above the spoon fed TV characters called presidents, senators, governors, etc. You and I know, such a diabolical event does not happen without plan and execution.
Dave Lindorff is the one who has most recently brought this situation of the pressure spreading out under the layers beneath the sea floor to light. I’m trying to predict the timing. If there is one thing I have learned over and over again it is this: I cannot predict the timing of these tragic events.

Latest from Ken:
Henry, understand, I as a father of three with a wife came to the conclusion that if we were living in the gulf region that we would be packing our things right now and leaving. With that decision it seemed imperative that I at least let other people, who might be in this region or know of somebody in this region, know of what I believe are significant risks at this particular juncture of this attempted pressure containment.
I think this youtube video describes the situation most accurately:
BP engineers were hoping to achieve gas pressures as high as 10,000 psi, and they were hoping for a sustained pressure of around 8,000 psi. The fact that they only got upwards of 6,700 psi indicates that they have leaks, which is not good news as you know this means that oil is working its way between the steel case and the sedimentary layers.
A major point to keep in mind is the huge percentage of methane gas: I have read upwards of 30% of the discharge is methane gas. This gas will gradually seep between various levels of strata leading to a rise in the sea floor. Here is part of a July 16th article from the LA Times Greenspace:
“We’re at the point where there’s enough uncertainty … we need to be careful not to do any harm,” said Thad Allen, the retired Coast Guard admiral who is overseeing the spill response.
After consulting with scientists Friday afternoon, Allen told BP to take more seismic soundings of the seabed and expand its monitoring of the seafloor. A federal ship with the ability to detect methane bubbles in the water – signaling a leak – was also called into action. end times article
I think it is noteworthy that they are requesting a ship to look for gas bubbles; it must be a large area that they need to monitor.
