Seeing more and more of these big ones. However our illustrious leader either isn't aware of this or he really doesn't care if We, the People die in our sleep...Between contaminated water and land, this is just the frosting on the chemical cake made by drilling, mining, and fracking.

Thank you Frans OMG this is really scary and the whole world seems to be fracking, mining taking everything from the earths crust. This sort of thing is a crime against humanity. What is wrong with the greedy Governments of the world this is beyond understanding they the don't look to the future which belongs to us the people of this planet.
