“You can hear the flares. If you’re close to them, they’re real loud. Some of them you can smell, if you’re… you know, if the wind’s right. We were just at my nephew’s the other day, and there’s a huge flare, up the coulee quite a ways, but they– their problem is H2S. Which is dangerous. It smells like rotten eggs. I’ve told them, that whole area there, it’s bad. We had other relatives who lived there, but every single one of them has had cancer or died from cancer, from earlier booms.”
