Gas Well Flaring by Air (video)

Yesterday, Vera Scroggins and I took an airplane ride
over parts of Susquehanna Co. PA.

What we saw was incredible...
many mining operations for gravel.

In some locations, there were well pads everywhere.
Some very close to homes. Pipeline networks.
Big industrial sites near pipelines which looked like
compressor stations.

And PA is only about 1/10th developed.

Here is one of the more dramatic shots
of a well flaring, near Wyalusing PA.

Sorry for the weird cropping.. this is the result
of image stabilization.

NOTE the proximity to the house, just across the street,
with a swimming pool.

May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)
-- ancient Buddhist Prayer (Metta)
