It’s the same old story that we hear over and over again in every fracking Gas Patch on this planet. People are living their lives then the Big Gas Mafia moves and starts belching up putrid and toxic emissions making the formerly happy residents miserable. They are scared and feel stuck because no one will buy their homes.

Installing that “incinerator” will do little or no good. It will burn the H2S and make SO2 (depends on efficiency). The incinerator will probably use the raw natural gas for fuel and spew out many other VOX’s, SOX’s and NOX’s. Just used to fool the locals. BTW, SO2 is just as bad a toxin as the H2S–but doesn’t stink as bad.
