After we posted photos of the Animas River disaster on our Facebook page detailing the destruction there, we received the following article.
These photos were taken from The Durango Herald where you can see the pollution for yourself through before and after pictures.
Is it possible that there is some insidious aspect to this recent event? – historically speaking it is highly likely.
“But make no mistake, within seven days, all of the 500gpm flow will return to Cememnt Creek. Contamination may actually increase… The “grand experiment” in my opinion will fail.And guess what [EPA’s] Mr. Hestmark will say then?Gee, “Plan A” didn’t work so I guess we will have to build a treatment plant at a cost to taxpayers of $100 million to $500 million (who knows).Reading between the lines, I believe that has been the EPA’s plan all along”
The EPA actually has no concern for the environment, they just happen to use the environment as a cover story to create laws and gain an advantage for the companies that lobbied for exemptions to the agency’s regulations, and to collect money in fines. There are solutions outside the common government paradigm, and that is mainly the ability for individuals, not governments, to hold polluters personally and financially accountable.
