RADIOACTIVE WASTE FROM OIL AND GAS WELLS USED TO DE-ICE STREETS IN 13 STATES. OHIO BILL AIMS TO PROTECT THIS | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

RADIOACTIVE WASTE FROM OIL AND GAS WELLS USED TO DE-ICE STREETS IN 13 STATES. OHIO BILL AIMS TO PROTECT THIS

BY B.N. FRANK
If spreading radioactive waste on American roads was no big deal, environmentalists and scientists probably wouldn’t be freaking out; and, of course, people and animals wouldn’t be getting sick and dying. So how did this practice become legal and even celebrated by elected officials?

According to a recent article published in Rolling Stone magazine:

There is no one federal agency that specifically regulates the radioactivity brought to the surface by oil-and-gas development,” an EPA representative says. In fact, thanks to a single exemption the industry received from the EPA in 1980, the streams of waste generated at oil-and-gas wells — all of which could be radioactive and hazardous to humans — are not required to be handled as hazardous waste.”

OMG.

There are many bizarre and disturbing facts revealed in this article, including a business owner bragging that he “soaks his sore feet” in his company’s radioactive concoction. Of course, that’s his choice; but according to at least one geochemist, that doesn’t mean his product is safe.

Thanks to Rolling Stone for exposing all of this and to everyone trying to stop it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That this practice is still allowed by the EPA, is nothing short of pathologically insane, on its part; and where the hell was the outrage at this practice in 1980, when it originally got signed off on?!?
