Mandaree, ND

“I’m surrounded by oil and gas development. From the north, to the west, to the east, to the south. Visually, at nighttime, when you look at the horizon, it’s pink, or orange, and it’s wavering– the light’s wavering– because there are flares out there. They’re just everywhere. And what’s troubling is that flaring is not contained to the site. Those gases travel. In Mandaree, there are flares located in close, close proximity to schools, houses, everything.”
