John Bolenbaugh- Whistleblower

A citizen whistle-blower from Kalamazoo, Michigan tells the story of the catastrophic tar sands spill in 2010 and his successful efforts to expose the company’s cover-ups. John’s exposure forced the EPA to demand that the pipeline company Enbridge re-clean the covered up areas and re-dredge the river at an estimated cost of $600,000,000. John Bolenbaugh lived on the Kalamazoo River when the tar sands oil spill occurred in 2010.

HOW IS THIS DOCUMENTARY RELATED TO FLORIDA'S ACTUAL POLLUTION OF THE AQUIFER SYSTEM?

Right now, the Sabal Trail Transmission Pipeline is being built in Florida and scheduled to be in service by June 2017. It is known that EVERY pipeline leak even the new constructed pipelines. Here is some more information on the pipeline in Florida:

The Sabal Trail Pipeline is a methane gas pipeline currently under construction here in Florida. It will include approximately 515 miles of interstate natural gas pipeline (86 miles in Alabama, 162 miles in Georgia, 268 miles in Florida) and, initially at least two compressor stations at the beginning and end of the pipeline system. A total of five stations along the pipeline will be constructed by 2021. This project represents a multi-decade long investment for the fossil fuel industry. That means more domestic production, more transport, more destruction, more leaks. The pipeline will cross the most exposed part of the Floridan Aquifer, which is home to hundreds of springs, rivers, lakes and streams harming 1,958 wetland systems . This aquifer also underlies an area of about 100,000 square miles and provides drinking water to over 10 million people in cities such as Savanah, Brunswick, Orlando, Jacksonville, and Tallahassee. Activists from across the country have been inspired by the heroism shown by indigenous leaders in the fight against the Dakota Access pipeline. Peaceful, but direct, resistance is the key to protecting our natural world and her waterways from the destructive process of fossil fuel extraction, transport, refinement, and use. The resistance is already underway, but we need your help. Activism manifests in many forms, both on and off the front lines. Contact the growing spirit camps to learn how you can help.
