To simulate how I obtained the photos….
- click on the NCR report above, and
- click on the satellite of the map, and
- zoom in to see the production site,
- then go west to be horrified at the sheer magnitude of all the padsites/earth holes/pincushion, then
- go north along I45 to see the Richland Chambers Reservoir.
Unknown is how long before all the surface and subsurface longterm spills and water migration patterns of fossil fuel mining and production will affect our drinking water although I suspect it already has.
No joke though, this is a HORRORable thing to have happened on Halloween at the Adams (family?) site….I’ll email our city water director this link so he is informed.
The name Anadarko reminds me of doomsday ridden Donnie Darko…no joke there either.
Here’s a Happy Belated Halloween video for you complete with costumes during a survey off what folks thought of Fossil Fuel Sponcered Green Energy attempts…..
