A Saskatchewan farm couple whose land lies over the world's largest carbon-capture and storage project says greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide) leaking out are killing animals and sending groundwater foaming to the surface like shaken soda pop.
The gases were supposed to have been injected permanently underground.But in 2005, the Kerrs began noticing algae blooms, clots of foam and multicoloured scum in two ponds at the bottom of a gravel quarry on their land. Sometimes, the ponds bubbled. Small animals -- cats, rabbits and goats -- were regularly found dead a few metres away.
The water, said Jane Kerr, came out of the ground carbonated.
"It would fizz and foam."
Then there were the explosions.
"At night we could hear this sort of bang like a cannon going off," said Jane Kerr, 58. "We'd go out and check the gravel pit and, in the walls, it (had) blown a hole in the side and there would be all this foaming coming out of this hole."
"Just like you shook up a bottle of Coke and had your finger over it and let it spray," added her husband.
Inject Carbon into the ground and what does one get? Carbonated ground water.
Which would make sense, since we should all know Carbon is added to CARBONATED beverages, through the process of Carbonation to make it fizz.
When you open your carbonated drink the Carbon dioxide is released into the air.
A simple solution to so called man made Global Warming? Ban carbonated drinks!
But wait!!! That is NOT profitable in an exploitative manner. Not like forcing you to buy carbon credits at a carbon casino, I mean in the carbon market.
And one more point I would like to make. If this hadn't occurred to you while you read this? - If the Carbon, from the "capture" is escaping from the ground it is going right into the atmosphere. Making this carbon capture project completely bogus.
