Irving Oil using Bay of Fundy as its refinery toxic waste dumping site.Heinous Crimes, World news Wednesday, August 6th, 2014
When the Irving Oil TransCanada tar (bitumen is a European term for Asphalt which is tar, not oil) pipeline gets built the Bay of Fundy and the people all along the East Coast of both Canada and the United States are going to be quickly poisoned to death. Irving Oil isn’t building any tailing or evaporation ponds to hold the very toxic tailings that are produced from refining the Alberta tar. Irving Oil will continue to do as it has been doing for decades – dump it into the Bay of Fundy.
Irving Oil has been poisoning the Bay of Fundy and all rivers, streams and underground aquifers that are feed by the Bay of Fundy, for years, as evident by the above Google map image. Click on the image above for an enlarged view of the Saint John New Brunswick harbor and the very toxic tar slurry that has contaminated the harbor and the Bay of Fundy. You can clearly see a toxic oil slick in the Google satellite image. You can also clearly see where the contaminate is entering the harbor. If you check out the harbor on Google yourself and zoom out you can see that the toxic waste is spread all along the coastline. Currents spreads the Irving Oil toxic waste along the Eastern Seaboard, contaminating the water of all of the East Coast States and Provinces.
Both the provincial government of Progressive Conservative David Alward and the federal government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper know that Irving Oil is dumping its toxic waste directly into the Bay of Fundy. Both Alward and Harper are allowing Irving Oil to do it and they’ve allowed Irving Oil to do it for decades.
Just how much is being illegally (gross violations of the Environment Protection Act and Canadian Fisheries Act) dumped by Irving Oil into the Bay of Fundy? Irving Oil is already refining over 250,000 barrels per day of the very toxic tar from the Alberta Asphalt mining operations. According to an Alberta government report: “mining operations uses 7.5 to 10 barrels of fresh water for every barrel of Alberta crude oil and about 2.5 to 4 barrels of fresh water is used for every barrel of bitumen.” Irving Oil will have to use at least 2.5 to 4 barrels of fresh water to further refine the bitumen. Do the math.
Just how toxic is the water from the Bay of Fundy? Water samples from the Bay of Fundy and the rivers and streams it feeds will not pass potable water test. All samples will have toxins and oil them.
There are already a large number of tailing evaporation ponds inland throughout Southern New Brunswick. They are built intentionally on land stolen from seniors and farmers by the Crown. On land David Alward and the Crown stole from the New Brunswick people as part of the Crown’s Royal District Planning Commission mandate – private land title theft for future acid rain producing and cancer causing shale rock fracking.
There is no such thing as Alberta oil or New Brunswick shale gas. Both are fraudulent schemes that uses water to fraudulently imitate oil and gas. Water is necessary for both confidence schemes. Without fresh water there is no fabricating snake (fake) oil from Alberta tar and fracking (splitting) water (H2O) to make Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) which David Alward, Texas United States SWN and Irving Oil are fraudulently claiming is shale gas.
Just how toxic and life threatening is Alberta tar? CDC a U.S. government agency states:
Asphalt: Asphaltum, Bitumen (European term), Petroleum asphalt, Petroleum bitumen, Road asphalt, Roofing asphalt
Fumes generated during the production or application of asphalt causes irritation eyes, respiratory system; and occupational carcinogen (cancer causing).
Refining bitumen (what Irving Oil is already doing at their refinery in Saint John NB) results in dangerous emissions of carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, sulfuric acid mist, arsenic, and toxic heavy metals, such as lead, nickel and mercury. Heavy metal toxicity cause progressive physical, muscular and neurological degenerative diseases. Bitumen contain more cancer-causing chemicals than conventional crude – 11 times more sulfur, 11 times more nickel, six times more nitrogen and five times more lead.
Just how toxic and life threatening is H2S – fraudulently called shale gas by David Alward, Enbridge Gas (bribed David Alward and his Progressive Conservative government with a $billion lawsuit threat) and toxic waste dumping Irving Oil? Hydrogen sulfide is a colorless, flammable, extremely hazardous gas with a “rotten egg” smell. The “rotten egg” smell is what David Alward, U.S. owned SWN and Irving Oil are using to fraudulently claim and market the extremely hazardous Hydrogen sulfide as shale gas.
Health effects of H2S exposure. Hydrogen sulfide is both an irritant and a chemical asphyxiant (inducing or tending to induce asphyxia – a condition arising when the body is deprived of oxygen, causing unconsciousness or death; suffocation) with effects on both oxygen utilization and the central nervous system. Can cause severe eye and respiratory irritation (including coughing, difficulty breathing, accumulation of fluid in the lungs), headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, staggering and excitability. High exposure can cause shock, convulsions, inability to breathe, extremely rapid unconsciousness, coma and death. Effects can occur within a few breaths, and possibly a single breath. This is what Irving Oil and David Alward want to “fabricate” using our finite supply of fresh drinking water.
