These are nothing more than Enviro-Nazi propaganda...those are holding ponds catching the substance for further processing...it is not going into the environment. If you want to eliminate industrial processes try living circa 1750...I don't think you will like it.

Another fine mess you got us into Ollie!

I often get annoyed at new government regulations, but you see something like this and it reminds you why we have rules.

Sooo, we're in a hurry to create advanced tech in order to discover other worlds only to create them in our own backyard.

They look like Jupiter, Mars and any other desolate place in this Universe, 'till now. Unless you show me a planet with green pastures and blue clear water, I say a big WTF!?!
