Pump it up !
Kallo : caught in the cables of electricity pylons : it keeps disturbing the view. Would nobody have thought of that before they started ? I suppose such cables can be put underground as well ?
View on Kallo made in “het Groot Rietveld” (the Big Reed field), nature reserve not only for protecting nature, but for protecting people as well !! It helps Kallo to breathe in its enclosure by industry. An enclosure that is stopped by action of the nature organization. If not : industry would have moved up until it met the first houses of the village. It was in this previous strategy that Totalfina placed oil tanks near the village (not visible on the picture, but standing on the left). Those giant oil tanks contain “strategic reserves” : if the oil is expensive, this supply is pumped up. Once it was a fact that nature would surround Kallo, the presence of the oil tanks (often causing smell nuisance) was questioned, but it did not result in a displacement. Who cares, right ? And now a disaster happened : 40 million liters of oil flowed out of a tank because of a crack. Pump it up, guys ! And dear inhabitants : close your windows and wear a dust mask when you are in the port area. I don’t know yet where it all flowed in, but this does NOT look good (probably an understatement) for the brooks and the soil, not to mention : the amphibians and the fish. Let’s hope it did not flow into het Groot Rietveld (the nature reserve : the Big Reed field).This opinion is assimilated in the oil leak news item on Kanaal 3 (regional televison) today.
At least that is what they said, but I did not have the possibility for an interview and so, nothing was said about it. Words without images are not a television option, so I conclude.
