1. it's so sickening and maddening! I don't understand how people can be so complacent

2. Most don't know, thanks to our bought-and-paid-for "free" press.

4. I'm of the opinion that people that deny and/or excacerbate

global climate change should be treated like war criminals. Or worse.
They're actively taking part in making this planet unsuitable for habitation for short term profit.

This is like some super villains plot in a comic book.

5. The common man has been de-balled and they know it-they have power and control

and they are rubbing it in the average man's face because we do not do anything about it. Business with money and power will make sure laws are made that will not control their selfish corporate greed in any manner even if it means killing humans and the planets life cycles.

7. CBS news covered it last night, replete w/infrared video.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/southern-california-porter-ranch-methane-gas-leak-pumping-out-70000-lbs-of-gas-an-hour/


...Infrared video shows gas rolling off the top of a nearby ridge, down into the community of Porter Ranch. It was shot by a law firm representing several homeowners who are now filing lawsuits against Southern California's gas utility company.

Matt Pakucko bought his first home in the Porter Ranch community eight years ago because of the scenic views and his ability to work from home as a music producer.

"I can't work in here, I can't breathe in here sometimes. When that wind blows off that hill, it comes down the fire place," said Pakucko.

The leak started in October. So far, more than 6,500 families have filed for help, but only 2,200 have been relocated.

9. I'm a hell of a lot more worried about the continued "leakage" of Fukishima.

Little to be found on that.

10. I share your concern about Fukushima but...

...I don't think that it makes sense to rank them this way ("hell of a lot more worried" about Fukushima). They are both terrible.
