SENATE & PARLIAMENT - CH.11
Atlantis has been the subject of countless films, as has Nazi gold and oil polluting our oceans, but never have all these elements come together under one roof as a submarine movie. Aiming for a screenplay 90-110 pages max.
US SENATE, UK & EU PARLIAMENTS
Charley Temple was quick to analyze the published oil leak data. It was not pretty. Tellingly whitewashing of the scale of the environmental tragedy, money versus acceptable pollution. When toxic waste can never be acceptable, and oil is carcinogenic.
She asked Hal to try and link emails from operators to ministers, and came up with the names of Sir Rodney Dunbar and Nick Johnson MP. Both, with undeclared interests in companies drilling in the North Sea. That fact was not particularly palatable, to the investigative reporter. Less acceptable to the State, who appeared thus party to the deception. More so, when Scotland Yard, trudged into view, allegedly beating up protestors, and sexually debasing females in that group.
Charley's blood boiled at the suggestions. But only those members of the Terramentals could testify, and you can bet there would be no justice on British soil, judging from the high levels of procurement fraud in a variety of arenas, NHS and MOD, it appeared to be custom and practice across the board.
The information uncovered was presented to Jill Bird, and aired as mention, rather than as a featured news item, where the main story was the hijacking of a high-tech British nuclear submarine. How was that possible?
This was rapidly developing into a marine Watergate. "Oilgate." But now Commander Storm was a secret service agent, unravelling the mish-mash, cock and bull stories, one by one. It would not be pretty.
Belgium, London and Washington, the ripples ran through the
assemblies. In China and Russia, it brought smiles to faces,
rather than consternation, but that was short sighted in the
extreme. Because, they could be next.
News of the submarine hijacking and destruction of oil rigs, sends alarm bells ringing in governments around the world. Evidence is uncovered as to the enormity of the North Sea leaks cover up, as Charley Temple releases her investigative research. The Deepwater Horizon leak is relived, sending shivers down political spines.

Disillusioned eco activists are imprisoned by the British, for peacefully protesting in London about unrealistically low fines for oil spills in the North Sea, demonstrating strictly in accordance with their Article 9 and 10 Human Rights. They are targeted by fossil fuel industry fraudsters, who bribe police officials and court judges to secure a conviction, with the backing of corrupt ministers of state who have undeclared personal investments in oil drilling companies: Amoco, BP, Shell, Total. That sets in motion a train of events, where, having been framed, the ever more determined environmentalists build a mini-sub, fast enough and especially equipped, to sink or capture Astute, Aukus and US Seawolf class submarines. Having captured HMS Neptune, the Terramentals torpedo a BP owned rig, also destroying two others (Shell), with the looming threat to target all 150 plus, operating in the North Sea. The oil producers are temporarily forced to shut down production, as a result of the significant media coverage and public outrage on realization of the pollution. The UN asks John Storm to provide a geodata survey on the environmental damage.
