Porter Ranch, California is the site of an environmental disaster of epic proportions. The largest Methane gas leak in the history of the United states spewed for almost 4 months and deposited 100,000 tons of methane into the Los Angeles Basin and the world at large. The impact is still being assessed. As the greedy quest for fossil fuels, never ends the lack of an effective rapid response amid this carnage is what should really cause concern. Why are we not exploring better and safer forms of energy to power the planet Earth? Why? This is a clear example of why we should. However greed seeded within the United States government and an inability to understand and except the scientific facts of climate change by the conservative Republican blocks progress.
