Ponder This: Venting and Flaring in Ponder, TX

I couldn't stand listening to this for 87 seconds.  Imagine having to listen to this for an hour or two in the middle of the night.  Some of these facilities are as close as 100 feet from houses.  This video was taken from quite a distance.

I just cannot understand how they get away with putting the wells so close to houses. This is so loud that it might be physically painful for little kids or people with sensitive hearing. So, here is another pollution for folks to just get used to experiencing.

There is a disease caused by sound and vibration. It can cause serious physical ailments. People don't think about that. It seems like a ridiculous idea, but it is very real for some people.
