Unstoppable California Gas Leak Being Called Worst Catastrophe Since BP Spill

By Claire Bernish

Methane gas continues spewing, unchecked, into the air over southern California from a fractured well to an underground storage site — at such an alarming rate that low-flying planes have necessarily been diverted by the FAA, lest internal combustion engines meet highly volatile gas and, well, blow the entire area to hell.

This is, indeed, the biggest environmental catastrophe since the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010; and for now, there is no way to stop it.

This methane disaster is worse than can be sufficiently described in words, because while it’s estimated well over 100,000 pounds of methane spew into the atmosphere every hour, the leak can’t be halted, at least until spring. Even then, that stoppage depends entirely on the efficacy of a proposed fix — which remains a dubiously open question.

Lol. I watched this vid in it's entirety hoping there would be some deep insight. Nope. Skip to 4:28. The grand conclusion of the video was: "Obama and the Paris climate talks are bullsh!t"

...thanks for filling us in.

Why Hasn’t Obama Mentioned the Enormous “Unstoppable” Gas Leak Happening in Ca.

This is all happening right now just 20 miles south of Los Angeles.

The question is, why haven’t we seen hardly anything about this in the news?

Why isn’t this a top story right now? Has it ever been this whole time? We heard all about the climate talks in Paris… How come we’re just now hearing about this?

Obama will wax on all day about “climate change” right? Well methane is clearly much worse for the environment than the man-made carbon dioxide he’s always railing against and where has he been on this one? Pushing gun control? Golfing?

CORRUPTION AND DESTRUCTION EVERYWHERE TO WATER AQUIFERS FOR COLD HARD CASH - WHAT IS $1 MILLION DOLLAR FINE COMPARED TO THE MILLIONS MADE FROM COMMITTING THE CRIME?

A Kansas chemical manufacturing company was fined $1 million Tuesday after admitting it illegally dumped hazardous wastes down a saltwater disposal well.
http://www.newsforage.com/2015/12/a-kans...mpany.html

California fracking oil companies illegally stored toxins in wells drilled through aquifers in 2015 - To big to fail “oil producers have been dumping chemical-laden wastewater into hundreds of unlined pits that are operating without proper permits.”

How much ground water was contaminated? Recently we learned that massive amounts of the carcinogen benzene — concentrations “thousands of times more than federal and state regulations consider safe” — are contained in the flowback fluids that California fracking oil companies have illegally stored in wells drilled through aquifers (underground water tables) containing clean water.

Any crack or failure in those wells will contaminate water communities use for drinking and agriculture.

Porter Ranch gas leak produces pollution equivalent of 4.3 million cars per day

Leaking for 3 months, because the methane leak has become one of the worst environmental disasters in the US in recent history, the California’s Porter Ranch gas leak will be investigated by the EPA severely. The leak has been present since October, forcing the evacuation of over 2,000 families, but only in December has the owner of the factory, SoCal Gas, acknowledged that the leak was detected.

Thinker: I couldn't agree more.

That's why I've been transitioning to a life without fossil fuels. It's taken me 3 years to drastically reduce my consumption, and now even while operating a small business (which hosted over 30 people last year), the gas consumption at our 'Eco-Retreat' was less than 30 liters. At the Retreat, we teach our guests, by example, and hands on learning, how they can live comfortably doing the same.

The options and tech are there for anyone who wants to do the same. The choice is up to each individual.

I don't believe the question is "how long will the people suffer", I believe it's "what are you willing to do about it"

Not government, not corporations, INDIVIDUALS.

We can only change gov and corp actions through our own actions.

...and since we are talking about pollution, anyone who is anti-petroleum MUST also be anti-precious metals for the same reason.

The Surprising Source of Most Mercury Pollution

If, as Robert Frost wrote, "nothing gold can stay," then mercury sticks around forever.

Mercury has an uncanny ability to bind to precious metals, and for millennia, people have used it to mine gold and silver. Small-scale, or "artisanal," mining — which makes use of mercury in this way — has recently become the leading source of mercury pollution, several recent studies show.

Mining releases mercury into the air when it is burned off to isolate gold from a chunk of rock or slurry; it also seeps into the soil and rivers from water used in the process and runoff from rainwater, contaminated by materials left behind from mining operations.

How can one be anti-petroleum pollution AND pro-silver/gold pollution?
