I lived 4 blocks from a small city plant. I always heard the cooling tower fanbelts squeal, (pause) squeal, (pause) squeal...

Tiger, that YouTube video has been completely debunked.

The supposed 'burning water' problem was artificially created by the 'victim,' a political activist. It has absolutely nothing to do with 'fracking,' or any other mining activity.

You might as well believe that there really are elves and orcs in New Zealand, because you saw them in a movie. I'll bet those evil miners are also mining a planet with blue natives and flying horses, too.

I live 10 minutes from a recently built gas fired plant, and things are alright. So far anyway...
