Today we aimed Jim Lee’s Climate Viewer at the nonstop gas leak at Porter Ranch near Los Angeles.

Recall Simi Valley is the home of dangerous, early nuke lab accidents.

Sodium Reactor Experiment
The Sodium Reactor Experiment-SRE was an experimental nuclear reactor which operated from 1957whiteRADyelBlack to 1964 and was the first commercial power plant in the world to experience a core meltdown. There was a decades-long cover-up by the US Department of Energy.  The operation predated environmental regulation, so early disposal techniques are not recorded in detail. Thousands of pounds of sodium coolant from the time of the meltdown are not yet accounted for.

Thanks! That new edition of Climate Viewer is the BEST! So much toxic crud in CA from nuke programs and university labs…

I think that they also did some illegal dumping of offshore waste. Maybe in the wiki article or at links. I need to see if I have any notes.

I think they are doing all sorts of pollution at their port of export (of uranium).

It is in this post: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2015/03/14/sea-stars-sentinels-for-radionuclides-nuclear-waste/: On July 31, 1989, Myron Levin of the LA Times published an article entitled “Old Nuclear Dump Off Coast Is a Relic of Era of Naivete in Toxic Disposal“. He informs us that for around a decade, starting in the early 1950s, radioactive waste from Atomics International (Rockwell International)’s Santa Susana Field Laboratory was dumped near Santa Cruz Island in Channel Islands National Park, along with military chemical waste. At the Santa Susana Lab: “At least four of the ten nuclear reactors suffered accidents. In July, 1959, the site suffered a partial nuclear meltdown that has been named ‘the worst in U.S. history’, releasing an undisclosed amount of radiation, but thought to be much more than the Three Mile Island disaster in 1979“. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Susana_Field_Laboratory

Right now ( i.e. March 2015) in the Channel Islands: “San Miguel Island Closure: In the interest of public safety, the U.S. Navy is closing San Miguel Island until further notice due to recent concerns of possible unexploded ordnance. San Miguel Island was an active bombing range from WWII through the 1970s. San Miguel Island is owned by the U.S. Department of Defense and is managed by the National Park Service under a memorandum of agreement.” http://www.nps.gov/chis/planyourvisit/conditions.htm

The Channel Islands are important for the now ailing California Sea lions. http://www.nps.gov/chis/planyourvisit/seal-and-sea-lion-viewing.htm
They were the earliest, or one of the earliest, locations of sea star wasting disease: “In the summer of 1997, we quantified the incidence of wasting disease among multiple species of sea stars through-out the Channel Islands and adjacent mainland areas. The disease has been observed since 1978 during warmer water periods.” (“Sea Star Disease and Population Declines at the Channel Islands“, by Ginny L. Eckert, John M. Engle, David J.

Experts: Formaldehyde is spewing from massive LA gas leak — “Very dangerous for public”… methane turning into embalming fluid — Can make your body “start digesting itself” — Company knows this is happening and should warn us… Obviously they don’t want you to know about it (VIDEO)

“As I understand it, they are pouring, “Heavy-fluids,” into the well-head from an auxiliary shaft they’ve angle-drilled in from the side.
As I see it, this is the Dutch-Boy putting a finger in the dyke, The pressure builds up behind it. Equilibrium dictates that, that pressure has to redistribute itself if it can. We’re in a fault zone . . . It can! So we have this being pushed out all over the L.A. Basin. They’re distributing their poison quite efficiently according to this scenario. I predict headlines about it will break through in 3-7 days.”

TEXAS:
Unstoppable Texas Gas Leaks Worse Than California’s, Media Silent
“Every hour, natural gas facilities in North Texas’ Barnett Shale region emit thousands of tons of methane — a greenhouse gas at least 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide — and a slate of noxious pollutants such as nitrogen oxides and benzene.”
