Oopsie! EPA Accidentally Dumps A Million Gallons Of Toxic Sludge Into Animas River In Colorado

EPA Pollutes River With A Million Gallons Of Toxic Sludge – Downtrend

.

.
You probably heard about the toxic waste spill that polluted the Animas River in Colorado earlier this week. And you likely thought that some evil mining company or heartless corporation was responsible for this environmental disaster. As it turns out, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) were the ones behind this catastrophe. Yeah, the same EPA that Obama uses to kill energy jobs with unrealistic ineffective regulations.

KUNC reports:

A huge spill of hazardous mine waste has contaminated the Animas River, which runs through Durango.

The Environmental Protection Agency says the spill was triggered by EPA employees at the Gold King Mine above Silverton while they were investigating contamination at the mine. They estimate a million gallons of waste spilled from the mine.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a whole lot of detail behind this reporting. There are so many unanswered questions like: how in the f*ck does the EPA trigger a million gallon toxic waste spill by investigating?

I did so more research and found this at The Denver Post:

The Environmental Protection Agency confirmed it triggered the spill while using heavy machinery to investigate pollutants at the Gold King Mine, north of Silverton.

The spill was triggered at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the mine on the upper portions of Cement Creek, about 55 miles north of Durango. The fluid was being held behind unconsolidated debris near an abandoned mine portal, the EPA says. The agency called the release “unexpected.”

As far as I can tell, there was a tailings pond at this particular mine that was full of toxic sludge and heavy metals. The EPA, using heavy machinery, knocked over an earthen retaining wall and all of that nasty crap flowed out of the pond and into the Animas River. If this was unexpected, as the EPA claims, then clearly the agency doesn’t understand the basic laws of physics.

In addition to not getting that liquid flows downhill, the EPA also doesn’t appear to understand what their mission is. Allegedly their job is to protect the environment. That’s two of the three parts of the name of the agency.

Because of this toxic spill there is expected to be a massive fish and wildlife kill. In addition farmers, ranchers, and citizens down river may not draw water until the spill washes away. Whenever that is.

These are the same geniuses that President Obama thinks are going to clean up the environment and make us safe from climate change. I don’t actually believe in the man-made global warming myth, but I do think the sheer incompetence of the EPA could actually trigger such a thing.

If this toxic spill was caused by a company or individual, the EPA would fine the hell out of them. Someone responsible for something like this would be looking at million of dollars in fines and maybe even jail time. Do we think the EPA will fine itself or put their agents in jail over this? Highly unlikely.

I understand making a typo. I understand accidentally putting the wrong link. I don’t understand accidentally tweeting a picture of a dominatrix when you’re a governor. The picture shows up right underneath the tweet whether you are on your phone, tablet, or computer. Somebody saw this picture and then clicked “tweet”, which makes it that much more hilarious.

Oopsie! Cleaning Crew Goes To Wrong Apartment; Accidentally Throws Out Everything Tenant Owns

New York Cops Say They’ve ‘Never Seen Anything Like This’ – The Blaze

A man returned to his apartment in New York City recently to find that nearly everything he owned had been removed.

.

.
And no, he wasn’t the victim of a cruel prank or even a crime. It was a terrible mistake. A rubbish removal service had taken his belongings.

“Just think of everything that you’ve acquired in your lifetime in your house just gone!” the tenant, Nilay Shroff, told WABC-TV.

He said that he had returned one day after work and came home to a cleared out apartment.

“Right here, I had a dresser before, in here was completely empty, my air conditioner was still in there, my microwave, all of my pots and pans, every single cabinet was just cleared out,” Shroff said, “I literally had the clothes that I was wearing on my back and nothing else.”

Thinking that he was the victim of a burglary, he called the police. Investigators soon learned that he wasn’t the victim of a crime. Rather, they told him, he was the victim of a terrible mixup.

“The cops were like, ‘We’ve never seen anything like this.’ They were laughing,” Shroff said.

The police eventually learned from the landlord that the removal service meant to clean out apartment 2D, not apartment 2B.

“It’s every single piece of clothing that I owned. Like, underwear, I have to go to Target the next morning to just buy underwear,” Shroff said.

The computer technician has since started to replace his missing things, but says there still a lot of work to be done.

“I was just shocked, in shock,” Shroff said.
