7 Super Toxic U.S. Sites
Let's face it: Humans are pretty messy. Industrial processes like mining and manufacturing are important parts of keeping civilization going, but they all impact the environment. Sometimes that impact is particularly big and messy, leaving behind hazardous waste that can take years or even decades to clean up.

Cursed by Coal: Mining the Navajo Nation
There's a resource curse on the Navajo Nation. The 27,000-square-mile reservation straddling parts of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah has an extremely high abundance of many energy resources — particularly coal. That coal is what's burned to provide much of the Southwest with electricity, and it creates jobs for the Navajo. But the mining and burning have also caused environmental degradation, serious health issues, and displacement. VICE News travels to the Navajo Nation to find out how its abundance of coal is affecting the future of the Navajo people.

Water pollution connected to fracking
An investigation has begun to shed light on the hazards of hydraulic fracturing - or fracking - across the country. In at least four of the states that have nurtured the nation's energy boom, hundreds of complaints have been made about well-water contamination from oil or gas drilling. Pollution was confirmed in a number of those states, according to an Associated Press review that casts doubt on industry suggestions that such problems rarely happen. RT's Meghan Lopez learns more about water pollution from fracking from Tyson Slocum, director of the Public Citizen Energy Program.

Shale cowboys: fracking under Trump - Docu - 2017
Having your own energy sources is an important weapon in the world economy. Since 2013, the United States has made important foes of fossil-rich opponents like Saudi Arabia important in extracting shale gas and shale oil from its own soil. The price for a barrel of crude oil fell from 100 to less than $50. The Texan shale producers who survived this price tag are the new heroes of the United States. Under president Donald Trump, the shale cowboys are striving to help Europe to become independent. On research in Trumpland. Original title: Schaliecowboys Schale stone was considered worthless by the oil and gas industry in the past. They passed through on their way to expensive oil and gas that lay deeper. Until a small Texan gas company found a way in the late 1990's to win gas from hard-shelled rock. By making deep boreholes in the stone layers of the soil and injecting a large amount of water and chemicals under high pressure, shale gas and shale oil are won. With this method, later known as fracking, the energy market changed forever. In the meantime, one third of gas and oil production in the United States is a shale.And the bid consumer of energy is not only content to be independent, the country is now even an exporter of energy. OPEC, the organization of (other) oil exporting countries, keeps the oil price on the world market as low as possible, to make American production worthless. But for the moment, the oil countries do not get the shale cowboys on their knees. How does this controversial innovation put the world of energy upside down? Because this new offer of cheap energy really gives us more time to bridge the transition to a sustainable world of solar and wind energy. A few years ago, all experts and analysts went out of the Peak Oil Theory. Namely, the fossil reserves in the world were running out. The shale revolution turned this theory into old dirt in just a few years. Fracking technology opens a whole new reservoir of fossil fuels. The election of President Trump was greeted in Texas with joy and also seen as a recognition for what the shale revolution is going to be. And the future is even more rosy: recent geological research showed that hundreds of billions of dollars of shale oil are still in the so-called Wolf Camp Shale Field in West Texas. Who are the people behind this shale revolution? A portrait of the pioneers and the new Shale millionaires in Texas. Daniel Yergin (energy specialist and author of The Prize and The Quest), Dan Steward, Kent Bowker and Nick Steinsberger (Shale Gas Revolution Geologists and Pioneers), Matt Miller (Dallas Gray Gray Energy Partners), Doug Shanda (Head of Operations Cheniere Energy in Port Arthur), Tommy Taylor (Director of Fasken Oil & Ranch from Midland Texas).

The Future of Crude in the Texas of the North
Canada is the fifth-largest producer of oil in the world. But when the price of oil plummeted in late 2014, the country’s oil-rich western province of Alberta began hurtling toward a recession, with widespread layoffs and historic reductions in drilling activity. The impact was felt across Canada, too. Crude oil is the country’s number one export, and 99 percent of it is sold to the United States. But in recent years, the US has emerged as a major oil producer in its own right, following a revolution in controversial fracking technology that has increased US oil production and contributed to a global oversupply of oil. Now, Canada's energy sector faces the difficult question of how to meet new markets in a changing global energy landscape. VICE News visited Alberta, known as Canada’s “Texas of the North," in what is normally high season for drilling — just before the frozen ground thaws — to explore how the bitter sting of low oil prices is affecting the region’s the economy.

But with questions remaining about damage to the environment and people's health, fracking is causing a major rift across affected communities. "It's the answer to our local economy, our national economy, our state economy and it is the new foreign policy", says Doug McClinko, County Commissioner of Towanda, Pennsylvania. The area is rich in shale gas and to many like Doug, fracking is the key to a more self-reliant and secure future. In an area where rural livelihoods are under intense strain, the personal incentives for opening the door to fracking is clear: "It puts kids into college". But as global oil prices plummet, ripping profits from under landowners' feet, and more and more residents report severe water contamination, questions are coming to the fore and dividing communities. For Ray Kemble, a notable anti-fracking activist whose water began running green after the wells popped up, the benefits are nowhere to be seen. "They've destroyed my life", he says.

The Resident: How a lobbyist helped pollute Texan water
The energy company, Uranium Energy Corporation, has been trying to launch a large-scale mining operation in Goliad, Texas, for quite a while. Because the mining activities could pollute the aquifer that supplies the city's drinking water, the EPA has been rejecting the company's request for an exemption from the federal Safe Drinking Water Act. Then, the company hired high-powered lobbyists Heather Podesta, a well-connected player in Washington who has been called, "the number one person you need to know in Obama's Washington." After she lobbied on behalf of Uranium Energy, the EPA relented, and Uranium Energy is now allowed to mine the Goliad aquifer. The Resident (aka Lori Harfenist) discusses the story.

The Battle Raging In Nigeria Over Control Of Oil | VICE on HBO
Nigeria may sit atop one of the largest oil reserves in the world, but the majority of the Nigerian people have seen little benefit from the multibillion-dollar industry. The government and global energy companies have been exploiting the resource for years, bringing poverty, pollution, and violence to the Niger Delta. And now the local militias fighting for oil control have made conditions even worse. Caught in the conflict are Nigerian citizens involved in the illegal oil market simply for survival. Oil theft is rampant, and the booming black market has transnational oil and gas consultants concerned about the effects on global oil markets. The government isn't too happy about it either. “All the oil that is sold around here, the government calls illegally refined products,” local oil businessman Don Wizaro told VICE News. And when the Nigerian military raids illegal oil operations, they slash containers, releasing oil into waterways, contaminating what the main source of fishing, agriculture, and drinking water. As the government continues its assault on illegal refineries and barges carrying stolen oil, local militias are retaliating. And one of the most notorious militias is the Niger Delta Avengers. They attack pipelines and infrastructure, significantly affecting both the environment and the economy. VICE correspondent Gianna Toboni heads to the heart of Nigeria's oil production to witness firsthand the fight over the control of oil in the Niger Delta.

10 Toxic Abandoned Places
From the Berkeley Mine Pit, to the dirtiest pesticide plant in the world, these are 10 TOXIC Abandoned Places Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7. Wittenoom, Australia 6. The Berkeley Pit 5. Europe’s Abandoned Cooling Towers A man by the name of Reginald Van de Velde had the opportunity to explore the imposing man made industrial structures from what’s left over of nuclear power plants. Despite the controversy that comes with nuclear power, these are well-made modern marvels of architecture and he got a rare chance to go inside a few before they were demolished. In this photo we see the inside view of a cooling tower scheduled for maintenance in France. Vegetation at the bottom of this abandoned cooling tower in Belgium has began to grow even if it was once covered in toxic radioactive water at some point. He claims that no two cooling towers are the same and and this shot also from belgium gives you an idea how massive some of these structures are. The five cooling towers make up a huge part of the skyline in this countryside of the UK and are the only thing that remains of a nuclear plant that was destroyed 4. Mailuu-Suu Mine Located in the country of Kyrgyzstan, this is seriously one of the most toxic places on earth and it’s also abandoned! During the time when the Soviet Union occupied this country, the region of Mailuu-Suu had a resource that was desperately sought after. Uranium ore. Uranium was a key element in winning the cold war in order to produce nuclear submarines, power plants of and course weapons of mass destruction This mines here produced a whopping 10,000 metric tons of this resource from 1946-1968. They weren’t meant to withstand some forces of mother nature and in 1994 the mine flooded and caused a mudslide to spew uranium all over the place! They only people you might find walking around the abandoned mine here, are those who try to salvage uranium to sold on the black market. 3. New Idria, California This toxic ghost town in San Benito County, California is named after the New Idria Mercury mine. The town was settled in 1854 when pioneers began coming across cinnabar, gold and mercury. The discovery of Mercury was important for gold mining and this happened during a time when gold mining was sweeping through Northern California. The mercury is used to extract gold from gold ore and it results in a much purer gold. It became an important mining location up until the mine closed in 1972 and people began to realize how toxic mercury truly was. Elevated levels of mercury were found in the cities water supply and not only that, but the nearby hills also have been found with asbestos, making this place toxic on many different levels. 2. Kalachi, Kazakhstan The town of Kalachi Kazakhstan isn’t 100 percent abandoned just yet but it might as well be. More and more villagers leave here each day and some claim the government is forcing them too. Recently gold was found in this area and villagers believe they are becoming ill from a toxic gas used by the government in order to build the gold mine here. The city is left in ruins and everyone appears to be quite ill! There used to be a population of about 6000 people but now just a few hang onto life at this soon to be toxic ghost town. The statue you see here is in a town nearby that’s been abandoned and it looks like Kalachi will suffer the same fate. No one rides the swings or plays on the jungle gym outside anymore. Others believe uranium mines nearby are causing the strange illnesses. 1. Bhopal Pesticide Plant We’ve heard of the tragedies that Chernobyl has brought to the area in the Ukraine in some previous videos but the in all actuality the Bhopal incident was much more devastating. A pesticide factory owned by a US corporation in the heavily populated area of India was found to be leaking a large amount of cyanide into the air of the city of Bhopal. This caused 5,295 people to lose their lives but many claim the number is much higher and more like 25,000! This poison gas factory is now abandoned and it certainly is still toxic! To what degree exactly is unsure, but many believe their is a huge amount of toxic waste underground. Some daring urban explorers decided to visit that plant and came across some dusty bottles with chemicals still unopened! The rusting chemical plant itself will prove to be an environmental issue itself if it’s not carefully demolished

Corruption - EPA Allows Poisonous, Polluting Drilling
"When Uranium Energy Corp. sought permission to launch a large-scale mining project in Goliad County, Texas, it seemed as if the Environmental Protection Agency would stand in its way. To get the ore out of the ground, the company needed a permit to pollute a pristine supply of underground drinking water in an area already parched by drought."* The town of Goliad Texas faces drought, and relies on a supply of clean drinking water. Well, thanks to lobbyists, the Environmental Protection Agency changed its mind, and is now allowing Uranium miners to ruin that water supply for the sake of profit. How did this happen? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian explain yet another way money corrupts politics. *Read more from Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/13/goliad-texas-uranium-mining_n_2868248.html?utm_hp_ref=green Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://www.youtube.com/user/theyoungturks Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/theyoungturks Support TYT for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=theyoungturks-20 Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

How The Coal Industry Is Destroying Puerto Rico
Carcinogenic Poisoning in Puerto Rico: Puerto Rico's burgeoning coal industry might have saved the island over $500 million, but not without serious repercussions. The disastrous health problems affecting locals can no longer be ignored. Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures "It's normal for people to have cancer", says Guayama resident Alberto Colon. Almost one in ten people on the island have been diagnosed with cancer, including Nativid Borgos: "I’m fighting harder now because I’m not the only one who’s been hurt in my community." Since a new coal plant opened in 2002, citizens have noticed major changes in their health. Coal dust from the plant is turned into Agremax, a commercially viable product used on the island, yet it contains hazardous metals that pollute the air and water. These problems are ignored by the plant's owners and the government. "The suffering these people have gone through", Nativid laments. "They need to do something."

Crude L.A.: California's Urban Oil Fields
For nearly four months, the Aliso Canyon methane leak just north of Los Angeles spewed several thousand metric tons of potent greenhouse gases into the air before it was finally sealed in February. The disaster displaced residents, forced schools to close, and incited widespread distrust in the local government's regulation of the oil and gas industry. Few people realize that Los Angeles was actually built on oil. The Aliso Canyon natural gas facility is just one of thousands of oil and gas drilling and storage sites located in and around the city, which is also home to the country's largest urban oil field. Thousands of wells dot the cityscape, and many operate in highly populated, low-income neighborhoods. VICE News visited Los Angeles, California to investigate how carcinogenic fumes from urban oil drilling are affecting local communities.

Clean ? Coal
The coal industry has spent millions of dollars on ad campaigns trying to change Americans perceptions over dirty coal. The ads have attempted to whitewash, or greenwash, coal using the oxymoron clean for one of the greatest source of pollution of our air, water and land. Animated to the tune Honestly Sincere, this video shows a chunk of Coal trying to clean up his image by covering himself with green paint, but everywhere he goes he wrecks havoc: literally leaving carbon footprints, exuding coal dust, dirtying streams, heating up the atmosphere, causing air pollution, and in the end, destroying wildlife, and decimating an entire mountain top. There is nothing about Coal that is clean- and the coal industries ads are anything but Honestly Sincere. Find out more about coal pollution at http://NotCleanCoal.com

8 Worst Man-Made Environmental Disasters in History
Worst man-made environmental disasters in history. These world tragedies & insane nature disasters caused severe damage! Subscribe for new videos: http://goo.gl/SaufF4 Follow us on Instagram: @theywillkillyou Voiceover by Carl Mason: [email protected] 8 Deepwater Horizon Offshore drilling contractor Transocean owned the rig & had leased it to oil giant British Petroleum or BP. Two days after, the platform sank & caused a petroleum leak that continued for almost three months. US government reported that approximately 4.2 million barrels of oil had been released. Aside from impacting 43,300 miles of ocean, the spill affected 1,300 miles of coastline from Florida to Texas. 7 Kuwait Fires The sun was darkened by the oily smoke plumes that shot high into the sky. People who ventured outside experienced breathing difficulties & one US environmentalist compared the effect to that of standing behind the exhaust pipes of hundreds of malfunctioning diesel trucks’. The fires burned for approximately seven months. Black rain, a mixture of smoke particles & natural precipitation fell as far as the Himalayas & the landscape became covered with hundreds of oil lakes, of up to four inches in depth. Birds confused the lakes for water. Smoke, ash & soot covered the Gulf. Livestock & the oily mist blackened the lungs of the animals. 6 Reactor Shutdown The reactor shutdown that took place on the 26th of April, 1986, is considered to be one of the worst in history. Many cases were subsequently connected to the massive spread of radioactive material. Wide areas of Belarus, Ukraine & the Russian Federation, inhabited by millions of people, were affected. It went as far as the British Isles. It’s estimated that at least 5% of the reactor core was released into the atmosphere & downwind as result of the blast. 5 Minamata Disease In the early 1950s the people inhabiting the small coastal city of Minamata in the south of Japan, began to notice animal behavior that was startling & out of the ordinary. Fish would inexplicably go belly up, birds crashed into the ground & cats would foam at the mouth & jump into the sea. It was not long that humans too began to exhibit unusual behavior that would later be referred to as the Minamata Disease. People would be stumbling about, slurring their words & encountering difficulties with the simplest day-to-day tasks. In 1958, the root of the strange behavior was finally discovered. As part of its manufacturing process, one of Minamata’s biggest employers, the Chisso Corporation chemical company had been dumping mercury into the sea. 4 Baia Mare Cyanide Spill The Baia Mare cyanide spill took place in Romania in the year 2000. A gold mining company called Aurul, a jointventure of the Romanian government & an Australian company called Esmeralda Exploration had been shipping its waste material to a dam near Bozinta Mare, Maramures County. The company had been extracting the remaining gold from the tailings through a process called gold cyanidation with the resulting waste then being taken to the dam. On the 30th of January, 2000, the dam burst sending 3,500,000 feet of cyanide-contaminated water into the Somes River & some of the surrounding farmland. 3 Exxon Valdez Oil Spill 260,000 to 750,000 barrels of crude oil were spilled in Prince William Sound, Alaska, on the 24th of March, 1989. It happened because of the Exxon Valdez oil tanker. The oil ultimately covered 1,300 miles of coastline & 11,000 square miles of ocean. A number of factors were cited as having contributed to the tanker’s crash. These included an insufficient & fatigued crew, possible problems with the ship’s Raytheon Collision Avoidance System radar or the lack of advanced monitoring equipment. Public blame also fell on the ship’s captain, Joseph Hazelwood, who was not present at the controls at the time as he was still sleeping after reportedly having drunk heavily the previous night. 2 Union Carbide Gas Leak On the 2nd of December 1984, 30 tons of a highly toxic gas called methyl isocyanate & a number of other gases were released following an accident at the Union Carbide pesticide plant in Bhopal, India. The low-lingering gases caused the eyes & throats to burn & induced nausea. Thousands of people were treated in the immediate aftermath for various ailments including blindness & liver & kidney failure. The Great Smog Also known as the ‘Big Smoke’, the Great Smog took place on the European continent. For five days in December 1952, the city of London was brought to a standstill by heavy fog combined with sulfurous fumes from power plants, coal fires & vehicle exhaust. The dense smoke blocked out the sun as it began to enshroud several of the city’s landmarks, such as Big Ben, London Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral & others. At first, Londoners tried to ignore the foul air as best they could, but within an hour it could no longer be overlooked.

Pipeline Nation: America’s Broken Industry
A pipeline network more than 2.5 million miles long transports oil and natural gas throughout the United States — but a top official in the federal government's pipeline safety oversight agency admits that the regulatory process is overstretched and "kind of dying." A recent spike in the number of spills illustrates the problem: the Department of Transportation recorded 73 pipeline-related accidents in 2014, an 87 percent increase over 2009. Despite calls for stricter regulations over the last few years, the rules governing the infrastructure have largely remained the same. Critics say that this is because of the oil industry's cozy relationship with regulators, and argue that violations for penalties are too low to compel compliance. VICE News traveled to Glendive, Montana, to visit the site of a pipeline spill that dumped more than 50,000 gallons of oil into the Yellowstone River, to find out why the industry has such weak regulatory oversight.

HUGE Mining Explosion Caught on Camera
Mountain top removal in Alabama. Sloan Mountain Mine owned by MS&R Equipment Co. This strip mine is located on a bend along the Locust Fork of the Black Warrior River in Jefferson County, Alabama. In addition to a long list of problems, the runoff from this mine has been pouring a significant amount of sediments and contaminants into the Locust Fork River. Mines like this are being increasingly permitted throughout Alabama. In Alabama there are weak regulations and lax enforcement of them, making it easy for coal companies to destroy mountains, alter wildlife habitat, mine through and pollute streams, and diminish the quality of life for nearby residents.  A strip mine can clear the forest, blast, and excavate over 200 feet deep within just 100 feet of a river and within 300 feet of an inhabited home.

Super Polluters: A Documentary from The Weather Channel
A tiny minority of America’s industrial sites released more greenhouse gases than all the passenger cars in the country combined and a third of all chemicals that companies reported pumping into the air in 2014, according to a nine-month investigation by the Center for Public Integrity. More of the people who live within three miles of these polluters are poor or African-American than the country as a whole, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. In Indiana, where pro-coal Gov. Mike Pence once called climate change a “myth”, industrial greenhouse-gas emissions are second only to Texas domestically, and exceed those from Israel, Greece and 185 other countries. Pence is the running mate of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. This film was produced by The Weather Channel in partnership with the Center for Public Integrity and USA TODAY/Gannett newspapers.
