When all the water is poisoned, Americans will learn the hard way that you can’t drink money or profits, or turn back time because by then it will be too late to do anything about it. America is in for a crude awakening.
January 20, 2015 – A Montana pipeline burst sent as much as 50,400 gallons of oil gushing into the Yellowstone River, prompting the governor to declare a state of emergency.
Residents in nearby cities were told not to drink the tap water, which some said smelled like diesel.
The massive oil spill happened when the 12-inch pipeline, which crosses the Yellowstone River, ruptured Saturday about 5 miles upstream from Glendive, Montana’s Department of Environmental Quality said. The Bridger Pipeline company shut down the pipeline.
Glendive City Council member Gerald Reichert was among the residents who noticed a disturbing odor in the drinking water.
“Suddenly at our house there was a definite smell. It was a diesel smell,” Reichert told the Grand Forks Herald.
Montana Gov. Steve Bullock announced a state of emergency for Dawson and Richland counties.
And while officials wait for results from water sample testing, they’re advising residents to use bottled water for drinking and cooking.
Isn’t that just precious. The oil companies spill the oil, and the residents pay for bottled water, no doubt owned at least in part by the same people who own the oil companies. What a racket.
Americans must do something to stop this madness before all the water is poisoned and we die.
