Big oil, big problems?
The Hawkwoods have experienced health problems, dead cattle and earthquakes causing property damage in the past three years – all, they say, as a result of fracking operations and more than 80 oil wells just upwind from their ranch.....
"We’re trying to give people an opportunity to hear unbiased information – so information from engineers and scientists who aren’t on the Goldenkey Oil payroll,” said event organizer Sheila Rogers.
The Hawkwoods, meanwhile, discussed the series of issues that began soon after fracking started about five and six kilometres to their west in 2009. Since they live on a ridge, which they said is level with the top of the nearby flare stacks, they are affected anytime a west wind is blowing.
The flaring has caused hair loss to Nielle Hawkwood, to the point that she now wears a wig, as well as skin, eye and respiratory irritation.
“As the time went on my symptoms got worse,” she said, adding she went to a dermatologist and was told something had affected her immune system.
“So we know from some of the chemicals that they use in fracking that there are effects on people’s immune systems.”
They’re frightened and they want to leave, or they’ve been affected,” Nielle said. “There’s a neighbour to the south of us – he has prostate cancer, his wife lost her hair, their two teenage daughters lost their hair; they’ve abandoned the house and told the real estate agent to get what you can for it.”
“I think the government knows what the problems are and they’re refusing to act,” she continued. “They’re not acting in Albertans’ interests, they’re acting in the oil companies’ interests. This is not right. This is not safe. Fracking is not safe.”
Please read the whole story linked above..and the story about BC Children attending schools surrounded by potential lethal sour gas, linked below..
And for those media, and one blogger too who was blathering about how wrong that an anti-fracking group held a demonstration in front of Christy Clark`s home last month.....Wrong, it was indeed appropriate..
The above article was the reason for the demonstration in front of Christy Clark`s home, people make homes in rural BC ..rural Alberta and rural anywhere in the world and along comes the frackers, drillers and then...
And then your water is poisoned, the air your children breathe, poisoned, health issues and sour gas risks(instant death)..These people have to live everyday worrying about their children and cancers..
That`s why the anti-fracking group took the message and demonstration to Christy Clark`s homefront..
Bill Good, Baldrey and Palmer and media are too stunned to understand this, those media and some bloggers still don`t get it, what would you do if your children got sick from exposure..And who will buy their soiled and sick properties....Do any of you understand the mental stress of living in these areas, ...Generations of homesteaders and township, now sleeping dreams turn to nightmares of worry..
For shame on the media, for shame on all those who close their eyes and mind..
What would you do if your kids hair fell out..choking, coughing and cancers and early death.....People I know would give up everything and move...but move to where, fracking is coming to a town near you..(watch the video in the below link...)
On Oct. 2, 1973 hundreds of residents in central Alberta are forced from their homes after a cloud of hydrogen sulfide spews into the air from an oil well. The threat posed by the poisonous and potentially flammable cloud prompts authorities to seal off a 225-square-kilometre area. This CBC Radio clip looks at the accident and the mass evacuation that it sparked.
