Message from co-host Michael Kickingbear…
My-cohost Dave has been a long
time advocate for clean water, trying to bring awareness to the
stubborn (such as myself) about the threats that are happening
right now to available groundwater sources across the country.
This week, dave sent me a segment from the Russia Today online media network from their “big picture” news show, hosted by Thom Hartman. In this Segment, he interviews Kevin Kamps, a staff member at beyondnuclear.org who mission is to “educate and activate the public about the connections between Nuclear power and nuclear weapons and the need to abandon them both to safeguard our futures. Kevin specializes and reports on the Nuclear waste sector.
Mr. Kamps mentioned that the Ogallala Aquifer, the largest groundwater source in the middle of the nation is under a triple threat:
1.) Due to heavy agriculture in the midwest (watering crops), the levels in the aquifer are steadily dropping, and not getting naturally replenished fast enough. (Only about one inch per year from rainfall)
2.) The newly resurrected XL Pipeline project will be built over a good portion of the aquifer. If it leaks, and it will, that will threaten the water supply.

As you can see, the pipeline route runs through the states that rely on the Ogallala Aquifer the most. They are ALSO heavy food producing states!
