One of Biggest Environmental Disasters in U.S. History Is Happening Right Now in California

DECEMBER 31ST 2015

By: Alex Mierjeski@AMIERJESKI

It's being compared to the disastrous British Petroleum oil spill— only invisible, and happening right now.

Disturbing levels of methane gas are currently spewing into the air from a Southern California Gas Company facility in Aliso Canyon, California, near Los Angeles. The foul-smelling gas, which has led to 1,700 evacuations and school relocations so far, is leaking out at a rate of 110,000 pounds per hour, state officialsconfirmed to the Washington Post on Christmas eve. At that time, more than 150 million pounds of methane had leaked into the atmosphere.

I've been reading about that, and that methane is far more of a contributor to global warming than CO2.
And up next for Cali... El Niño weather. Torrential rains where it's been drought conditions for four years.
This won't be pretty.

Quote:A spokesperson for the Southern California Gas Company told Motherboard that the company has tried to stymie the flow of gas by "pumping fluids directly down the well," though they have yet to find success with the method.

It doesn't look very pretty. sad2.gif

Was reading that oil is spewing from it now. This could turn out to be a gulf oil type volcano on land. Not good.
