It seems that nothing’s going right for the global warming crew these days.
In what is yet another embarrassment for global warming activists, it has emerged that a carbon capture plant in Canada is under investigation after studies confirmed that the Co2 which had poisoned a local farm, contaminating the water and killing animals, has the same isotope ‘signature’ as Co2 being stored underground at a local carbon capture installation.
The Globe and Mail reported:
Scientists are questioning the most damning evidence that a high-profile Saskatchewan carbon capture and storage project is leaking and dangerous.
Jane and Cameron Kerr, who own a farm near Weyburn, Sask., have cast doubt on the safety of a much-celebrated Canadian project to bury greenhouse gases after a series of bizarre incidents on their property that, they say, show those gases are escaping. After seeing accumulations of algae, unsightly sheens, strange bubbling and dead animals in and around a dug-out pond near their house, the Kerrs abandoned their property several years ago. Last summer, a consultant they hired confirmed that carbon dioxide from the Weyburn project was indeed bubbling up onto their land.
Isn’t that just great? They’ve taken a harmless, natural substance that’s found everywhere, and managed to turn it into something that poisons land, contaminates water and kills wildlife – in the name of saving the earth.
You really can’t make this stuff up.
