Partial summary (much more at link above)
A former oil & gas industry employee describes a dangerous safety culture among companies operating in North Dakota and the state's regulators. An underground leak of natural gas condensate estimated at 11 million gallons - comparable to the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill - has continuously been reported as a spill of only 10 gallons until exposed by an earlier whistleblower on desmogblog.com. “North Dakota is basically a Petrostate,” the second whistleblower, Paul Lehto, is quoted as saying. “There is regulatory capture, and sure that happens in other areas, but nowhere is it more extreme than in North Dakota.”

My Kids Join Global Kids: 9/20 Global Climate Strike

Never thought my kids would go on strike, but it is for a very good cause!

Kids all over the world are striking this Friday, and every Friday until there is serious action on climate change.

See https://globalclimatestrike.net/usa/

Adults and others are taking time off of home, work or school to take climate action. The strike map is always getting updated as strikes spread and are reported or discovered.

The strikers say:
"We’ve endured another summer of record-breaking heatwaves, floods, and refinery explosions. Enough is enough. No more government inaction and half-measures.

It’s time to build a renewable energy economy that works for everyone. Join us in the streets September 20 and the week after to demand climate justice for all."
