We have a blogger down in south Texas! Exxon Mobil (XOM) has slapped a gag order on her claiming she is revealing trade secrets. Apparently XOM doesn’t appreciate this blogger’s particular brand of Spatula Video Reporting. NOTE: this reporting is done from the ranch where she lives that has been in her husband’s family for decades.
I can see how XOM might not want everyone to know about THIS particular trade secret where they use a screw to
stop slow down a benzene leak. Man! If other drillers find that out there might be a run on screws all across this whole country. Or even worse, if all the drillers find out they never have to replace any old, worn-out equipment–even old, leaky junk from 1949 that doesn’t meet requirements of federal environmental laws like the Clean Air Act–then all those equipment suppliers would go belly-up.
Oh! Here’s another trade secret: BURN PITS!
ExxonMobil has at least 60
burn pits on the McGill Ranch property.
They buried them.
I am digging them up!
See, that stuff leaches down into the groundwater and The Spatula Video Blogger got it tested. Now, I’m not saying there’s a cancer cluster down there or anything but I did hear that the cancer clinic is overwhelmed.
