“Well, there’s many things about flaring. Number one is– what a waste. I mean, it just makes absolutely no sense to waste a one-time resource. The other thing is, who knows what the health problems will be down the road? You know? There’s certainly gotta be some health impacts, because we know what’s coming out of them. All the different gases and chemicals and so on. That’s got to have some impact. And then the change to the landscape…you don’t go out and look at the stars. You sit and look at the whole skyline lighted up by flares.”
