Fear Kansas Pipeline Environmental Disaster

CS Monitor and a bit of under-reported eco-drama: Kansas pipeline eruption leaves worrisome oily residue across Olpe

Deets:

"Kansas health officials on Monday were at the site of natural gas pipeline eruption in eastern Kansas, where crops and trees have withered since a dark, oily plume burst from the line while crews were trying to perform maintenance."

"crops and trees have withered since a dark, oily plume..." Someone has grossly exaggerated the impact of this event. Natural gas is odorless and colorless. The gas companies add something to it to give it the smell of rotten eggs so the average person will know there is a natural gas leak.

This is a classic case of someone with an agenda trying to convince people to join in their outrage. Be careful, and don't believe everything you read. This particular story is total BS.
