A Saskatchewan farm couple says greenhouse gases that were supposed to be stored permanently underground are leaking out, killing animals and sending groundwater foaming to the surface like shaken-up soda pop.
Cameron and Jane Kerr, who own land above the Weyburn oilfield in eastern Saskatchewan, have released a consultant's report that claims to link high concentrations of carbon dioxide in their soil to gas injected underground every day.
Energy giant Cenovus injects eight-thousand tonnes of the gas every day in an attempt to enhance oil recovery and fight climate change.
Cameron Kerr says ponds on his land have developed algae blooms, clots of foam and scum, while small animals have been found dead a few metres away.
A consultant found high concentrations of carbon dioxide in the soil that matches the carbon dioxide Cenovus has been injecting.
The Saskatchewan NDP government had agreed to conduct a year-long study to find out what was going on, but that hasn't happened since the government changed in 2007.
The suggestion that the Weyburn capture and storage project might be leaking could have implications for similar projects that try to store carbon underground, a technique being studied around the world with billions of dollars of public financing.
...i thought carbon secuestration was the "true panacea"...!
...OBVIOUSLY THE CURRENT "HUMAN SCAVENGERS OF OUR PLANET" are continuing to show to us all how "insane" they are, more than simply being evil...! ! !
THE NDP GOVERNMENT had agreed to investigate, because a Conservative ALberta illogical crude oil based economy and ancient social classes brain Prime Minister Stephen Harper would not even mention this much less do anything...! ! !
They live off crude oil, then they will live off bio-fuels, until they completely "CARBONATE" us all, and damage for ever our PLANET...!
THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW TO, OR REFUSE TO RUN A MODERN SELF SUSTAINING ECONOMY BASED ON WORK FOR ALL THAT CAN, AND PRESERVATION OF life using the "insect ant mentality" and others...! ! !
..AGAIN CRUDE OIL IS "EMERGENCY" ENERGY...! ! ! so that humans can last longer for millenias on Earth...!
THE DEPLETION OF CRUDE OIL, WILL BE a historic criticized fact worse than any WORLD WAR or the Catholic INQUISITION, or paganism sacrifice of humans, or other...!
The existing humans will hate all these assholes of government and companies...! i hope a family ancestry destruction revenge is not undertaken against all these dumb shits of these days...!
