Using maps and videos of America at night, Krulwich points out the clump of light in the middle of the North Dakota nowhere–a nowhere that should be dark. These are the flares burning off natural gas in the Bakken Shale.

Scientific American didn’t miss that streak. They have a cropped photo posted HERE.
Gases from flaring accelerate climate change and release toxins into the air.
