TOXIC FRACKING BRINE SPRAYED ON ROADS BY DOT IN WEST VIRGINIA
"Photos of wet pavement Rt. 20 & 41 mid day 12-18-16 from the ole Pioneer Inn at Glade Creek to top of Curtin Mt. ... What the hey you say .., well here's the big Deal. This water was spread on the road by a WVDOH tanker truck & the water happens to be a product of gas well drilling & fracking operations & contains more lethal poisonous chemicals than most of us could ever name & some that the oil ...& gas won't tell us about. It does contain large amounts of salts which does aid in the melting of snow & ice on the roads but where do all those poisons go when the snow melts & the rains come folks. Very easy answer which you don't wanna hear ... The poisons flush into the streams & seep into the ground waters both of which are sources of your drinking water. Do you want to drink that stuff that is being poured on our highways??"
Feeling lucky? Maybe you will NOT end up behind one of these trucks, like we did recently. My nose, throat and eyes were burning and I could SMELL chemicals, despite having the vehicle's air conditioning set to recirculate. Our windscreen wipers were running the whole time. The whole car was covered. The residue dried white. I was fully aware that this residue is radioactive, and simply breathing dust could, at the least, set you up for lung cancer from alpha and gamma ray emitters.
So, you ask, what kind of pollutants are we talking about? Benzene, Bromides, Radium.. and heavy metals .. just for starters!
From Pennsylvania to Ohio - the radiation issue alone is an eye-opener
