Right now there is a MAJOR methane gas leak in a major area in the UNITED STATES, and it is spewing so much methane that overflying planes are being diverted, because if their engines were to cross through the contaminated area, the whole southern part of state of California would blow all to hell!
That’s right! There is a huge methane leak that cannot be gotten under control in southern California, and it is the largest natural resources catastrophe in the U.S. since the B.P. disaster in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, and you are NOT being told about it.
From media outlet The Anti Media dot Org:
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.
According to the California Air Resources Board, methane — a greenhouse gas 72 times more impactful in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide — has been escaping from the Aliso Canyon site with force equivalent “to a volcanic eruption” for about two months now. So far, the total leaked gas measures somewhere around 100,000 tons — adding “approximately one-quarter to the regular statewide methane emissions” during that same time frame.
Why is the media not reporting on this? Is it because they fear a terrorist, such as those in ISIS or the Black Lives Matter movement heading out there and lighting a match? Let us know your thoughts on our Consciously Enlightened Facebook page by clicking on this blue sentence.
