Colorado flood disaster: hundreds of fracking well pads underwater

fracking well pads“Another tank overturned and a fracking chemical warehouse flooded…” As alarmed citizens report the damage to each other out West, is anybody listening?

For years, concerned residents, activists and scientists from Texas, Pennsylvania and other fracked states have sounded the warning bell against fracking in floodplains. The 30-foot wall of water displacing Colorado residents right now is worsened by the fires which took out trees which would have otherwise lessened this extreme flood.

This is a “feedback loop” in which one aspect of climate disaster — fires — worsens another aspect — floods. Floods will continue to be more extreme and frequent due to climate change, which is greatly exacerbated by fracking. Meanwhile the danger from fracking chemicals, condensate, and related toxins leaking into waterways in floodplains is now acute.
