THE REAL PRICE OF OIL


(Justin Nobel at the Extinction Rebellion Youtube channel)

"Oil-and-gas wells produce nearly a trillion gallons of toxic waste a year. An investigation shows how it could be making workers sick and contaminating communities across America according to journalist Justin Nobel.

From Justin's article published in Rolling Stone, January 2020, "One day in 2017, Peter pulled up to an injection well in Cambridge, Ohio. A worker walked around his truck with a hand-held radiation detector, he says, and told him he was carrying one of the “hottest loads” he’d ever seen. It was the first time Peter had heard any mention of the brine being radioactive."
