Very old mine dump in Booysens Joburg. This pit is from the informal/illegal miners we call Zama Zamas that operate all over the gold fields of the Witwatersrand. A deadly occupation these men fight vicious territorial wars and face a highly toxic and dangerous working environment. We run into them on occasion and so far have had no trouble with them. #minedump#tailingsdam#mining#enviromentaldisaster#goldmining
An oil spill of approximately 550 barrels (23,100 gallons) has killed more than 2,400 fish, birds and reptiles near the city of Barrancabermeja, Colombia, RCN Radioreported.
Oil started spilling from the Lizama 158 oil field in early March and spread down 15 miles of the Lizama river and 12.4 miles of the Sogamoso river.
According to local media, it took Colombia's state oil company Ecopetrol three weeks to respond to the environmental disaster.
Colombia Reports noted that the crude started escaping the oil field on March 3 but it was only this past Saturday that Ecopetrol vowed to send heavy equipment that could stop the spill.
The company said Tuesday that the spill is fully controlled and workers are carrying out environmental monitoring of the rivers. The cause of the spill is currently unclear but an investigation is underway.
In addition to the 2,400 animals who died, Claudia Gonzalez, director of the National Agency of Environmental Licenses (ANLA) told RCN Radio that 1,300 animals were rescued alive.
About 1,080 trees of different species were also affected by the spill and about 70 people had to be relocated from the area, with some people reporting healthproblems.
"I have practically nothing to eat, we have lived through the river all our lives and the contamination has already reached the Magdalena," area residet Elkin Cala told the Colombian television station Noticias Uno
Barrancabermeja, located off the shore of the Magdalena river in the department of Santander, is home to the largest oil refinery in the South American country.
Santander Governor Didier Tavera Amado has criticized the oil company for being incompetent and incapable of responding to the environmental emergency.
#northamburrows is truly an amazing place to enjoy, with the recent storms the sand headland has gone and the sea has massively (15 metres) eroded into the golf course ! I understand Mother Nature will have her way but many people will remember what was dumped in the old land fill site in the past! How long will it be with the sodden ground that all sorts of nasties will be seeping into the estuary polluting the waters even more . @torridgedc need to act now before it’s too late #sas#enviromentaldisaster

What are we doing? Could we work on Solar panel and winds mill farms instead of something that will be obsolete in the next 20 years? What is next...burying nuclear waste at San Onofre (too soon)? #enviromentaldisaster
