An immense plume of runaway natural gas — invisible to the naked eye — is billowing out of the ground at Aliso Canyon at an insane rate and has been for two months months now. Some 150 million pounds of methane has now poured into the atmosphere in just a few weeks.
No one seems to know what caused it and no one seems to know how to stop it. The gas leak continues unabated. It shows no signs of stopping.
It is now officially being called the worst catastrophe since the BP oil spill and the worst gas leak in California state history.
Newly released infrared video shows the enormity of the issue:
“It is one of the biggest leaks we’ve ever seen reported,” said Tim O’Connor, California climate director for the Environmental Defense Fund, a nonprofit group that obtained the video. “It is coming out with force, in incredible volumes. And it is absolutely uncontained.”
Zero Hedge reported that methane is 72 times more impactful (aka, worse) for the atmosphere than carbon dioxide is and this stuff is escaping with the force of a volcanic eruption that hasn’t stopped for months.
Nearby neighborhoods have been forcibly evacuated for safety. And again, the media outlets that have actually covered this situation just keep reaffirming the fact that there is no way to stop it. The leak continues to vent a gas which, in this volume, will have disastrous consequences on the atmosphere at a rate of up to 110,000 pounds per hour. This is all happening right now just 20 miles south of Los Angeles.
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?
This leak has supposedly already released the equivalent of what would be released from six coal fired power plants (the ones he wants to regulate out of existence) over the span of twenty years… in just under two months. And it just keeps leaking at an alarming rate.
A 6.2 magnitude quake has hit northern Afghanistan, the US geological survey (USGS) reports. Strong jolts have been felt in neighboring Pakistan and northern India, according to reports on social media.
The quake, which was initially reported at a magnitude of 6.4, then downgraded to 6.2, struck northern Afghanistan on Friday, the USGS said.
The epicenter fell 81km southeast of the Afghan city of Feyzabad, 40km west-south-west of Ashkasham, according to US seismological monitors.
Tremors were felt in the Afghan capital, Kabul, Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad, and in India’s capital, New Delhi.
The government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province issued a red alert in the wake of the quake. However, it did not report on casualties or damages.
A Pakistani official, Ghulam Rasool, told AP that a strong earthquake had struck the region, shaking buildings and forcing residents in Islamabad out of their homes.
An E. coli epidemic in Seattle and Kansas City and 19 other states? TB in New York and Manassas, Virginia? Leprosy in New Hampshire? Dengue Fever in Laredo? What’s going on here?
If you think data about illegal alien crime is hidden from public, just try to find information on the contagious diseases brought across our borders by illegal aliens from nearly 100 countries. If we survey the anecdotal and sporadic official data of the past fifteen years, there is no doubt we are being invaded daily by dangerous diseases.
There is good reason to believe the government is minimizing this risk as part of its disinformation campaign to sanitize illegal immigration and to portray all critics as “anti-immigrant.” Although the U.S. Border Patrol publishes frequent reports on the number of individuals apprehended crossing the border, no agency publishes reports on the diseases they bring with them and then carry into our communities.
And the threat is increasing, not shrinking, because the cross-border traffic is coming from places beyond Mexico and Central America. In 2014, for the first time in more than 20 years, over 50% of the illegal aliens crossing our 1,940-mile southwest border came from countries other than Mexico–and total cross-border traffic is expanding as well. Over 485,000 people were apprehended in 2014, and if you use the government’s “Gotaway Ratio” of 1.5 successful evasions of the Border Patrol for every single apprehension, the number of illegal entries by foreign nationals in 2015 was over 700,000.
What do we know about the diseases carried by illegal aliens? Not much thanks to government secrecy, but we know enough to be worried.
Among the most common diseases found among illegal immigrants are the new multi-drug resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB), Chagas Disease, Leprosy, and Dengue Fever.
- TB was largely unknown in Virginia until 2002, when it spiked 17% statewide and 188% in Prince William County, a suburb of Washington, DC. Public health officials blamed illegal immigration.
- Indiana University School of Medicine in 2001 studied an outbreak of MDR-TB and traced it to illegal immigrants from Mexico.
- Queens, NY public health officials have attributed 81% of new TB cases to immigrants.
- In 2002, the U.S. CDC attributed 42% of all new TB cases to “foreign born” persons, which includes both legal and illegal immigrants. THE CDC report suggested that 66% of all new TB cases in the U.S. originate in Mexico, the Philippines and Vietnam.
- Leprosy was so rare in this country that only 900 cases were reported in the 40 years 1960-2000. Suddenly, from 2002 to 2005, we had 7,000 cases and is now endemic in the northeastern United States. Most of the cases are traceable to Brazil, Mexico, Caribbean nations and India.
- Dengue Fever is extremely rare in America, but recently there was a sudden outbreak in Webb County, Texas, on the Rio Grande.
