* National Emergency imminent!

Relevant URLs are at the bottom of this posting, along with an
outline of the immense powers FEMA will be exercising when the
national emergency is declared.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 specifies the responsibility of the
    Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put
    all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased
    international tensions and economic or financial crisis.

Rita is now heading for America's densest concentration of oil
rigs and refineries off the Texas coast,  and in particular
directly for the huge refinery complex at Port Arthur. Not the
eye of the hurricane mind you, but even worse: the
north-eastern edge of the hurricane, where the strongest winds
occur. As a result of Rita, which will hit late today (Friday)
or early Saturday, we are likely to lose not only many of the
refineries, but also critical pipelines to the North East, and
many rigs that produce oil and natural gas. Of particular
importance, we are likely to lose nearly all of our refineries
that produce diesel fuel, and most that produce heating oil.
With Katrina we lost rigs and, perhaps more important, there
was significant damage to Louisiana ports, where most imported
petroleum is brought into the U.S.

Not only will gasoline prices soar, but we'll be critically
short of diesel fuel for truck transport and grain harvesting
- leading to a major food supply and distribution crisis. Lack
of heating oil and natural gas will cause havoc when winter
comes. With imports made more difficult by the damage in
Louisiana, it will be difficult and expensive to supplement
our crude supplies with imports, regardless of how much the
Saudis increase their production. And even if we can increase
imports, we'll be drastically short of refinery capacity.
Furthermore, our meager emergency reserves of refined
petroleum were tapped in the wake of Katrina, so there are no
more of those available.

All of this appears now to be completely unavoidable.
Understandably, the media is focusing mostly on the threat to
Houston and Galveston, and the mass exodus of residents. But
in terms of national significance, the threat to our fuel
supplies is far more important than the local devastation,
formidable as that may be. 

Regardless of any pre-arranged agendas that may exist, we can
expect a national emergency to be declared very soon, as that
is what we are indeed facing. The emphasis at first may be on
the massive refugee problem, as millions from Texas join the
hundreds of thousands from New Orleans who must find
accommodations elsewhere. There are also hundreds of thousands
who have been unable to leave the Texas coastal areas - many
of these stranded on freeways in blistering heat - and this
will require massive relief efforts. The fuel crisis will also
hit the headlines shortly after Rita passes as well, turning
the situation into a perceived national emergency very

This will be a multi-faceted emergency, drastically affecting our
whole society, our fuel, our food, and our economy.

I strongly urge everyone, wherever you are, to immediately
stock up on non-perishable food, and whatever else you think
you'll be needing, before the rush which will begin next week,
and before price gouging and the FEMA takeover begin.

good luck,
