Let’s talk conspiracies. There are a lot of different theories, and a lot of different sources of information. If you limit your research to one source, you’re not going to get a complete story. For example; If you think that there are a bunch of undiscovered species at the bottom of the ocean, you’d be correct. How is it 2019 and we still can’t get to the bottom of the ocean? It’s almost as if it’s being ignored. This is where the “Conspiracy” starts.
It all begins with a question. “Why aren’t we exploring the bottom of the ocean?” This is where the theory comes in. We start to answer the question with the information we have available at the time. “Water is heavy and being that far down would crush us.” But it’s 2019, we can’t build something that can withstand that kind of pressure and support someone? I’m very sure, somewhere, someone has built something that can travel along the bottom of the ocean, even if it’s unmanned. Here are a couple of examples of some deep sea robots.
Now we have to confirm these suspicions. Let’s research. Are there robots that can go down that far? Absolutely. They’re expensive as all hell, too. Some estimates put them between $10,000 to $40,000 a day to maintain and operate. Even if it costs $40,000 per day to operate, and it runs fo r365 days, that’s only $14.6m. Would you spend $14.6m for a return of billions of dollars? Who would be able to invest in something like that? I would say a corporation would be smart to do so because the value of that robot could be creatively written off in taxes.
Who would be able to afford a deep sea robot, and have an interest in what’s down there? There are Offshore drilling companies that make crazy money. For example, Nabors Industries has 400 drilling rigs in 20 countries, and the revenue for 2018 alone was over $3 billion. Transocean is also in 20 countries with 9,100 employees. In 2015 they brought in over $7 billion. They have the money to invest in these robots, to explore the floors of the ocean before they start drilling. I’m sure there’s a lot more to it than sending down a small unmanned robot, but that only further proves that with all the time and resources put in to exploring the ocean floors, surely something of note would come up.
This part here is a little bit of speculation because I have no idea how to even find stats on this, but we seem to be discovering animals and bugs on land at a pretty good rate. There are varying opinions on how many are discovered annually. But there are new species discovered all the time.
So it stands to reason that they would have a need for these robots. One of the downsides to that is that it’s not profitable for them to report finding any new species. An environmental report would have to be done to determine if the creature is endangered. There would be massive delays in the drilling, and that would cost these companies a lot of that money that they were making.
It would be in the best interest of these companies to keep any of the species found a secret. That way they can continue making money hand over fist and nobody’s the wiser. Of course, this is just a theory. It is possible that these companies have strong morals, and wouldn’t endanger an undiscovered eco system for a few bucks. Right?
