Retired geologist predicted Animas River accident a week before spill

A letter to the editor in the Silverton Standard and The Miner whose author is a retired geologist named Dave Taylor of Farmington, New Mexico forecasted the destructive, noxious Gold King Mine spill a week before it happened. Taylor also makes a shocking allegation that the Environmental Pollution Agency conducted this spill on purpose in order for the agency to secure more funding.

The letter dated July 30th, Mr. Taylor wrote the editor alerting locals that the bureaucracy was planning a Superfund biltzkrieg for the Gold King mine in Silverton, Colorado. The EPA has allegedly long wanted to make the abandoned mines in and around the area into a Superfund site which would mean federal money would be used to clean them up. Taylor states:

Based on my 47 years of experience as a professional geologist, it appears to me that the EPA is setting your town and the area up for a possible Superfund blitzkrieg.

Taylor explains in detail how millions of gallons of toxic water would be discharged since the EPA built up too much water pressure in order to plug the mine. One week after the EPA was at the mine a pipe was implanted so as to help them drain the heavy-metal infested water from inside. But the agency admitted they miscalculated the pressure and, just as Taylor predicted, the plug was dislocated dispatching the mustard colored, polluted sediment into nearby waterways.

If what Taylor says is true, this is monstrously criminal and the plot may have succeeded since The Four Corners News reveals local residents may have changed their minds. Regardless if the spill was intentional or not, CNN and other media outlets report the EPA does not now have enough money to pay for a Superfund site. What happened is due to gross incompetence and goes to show the EPA prefers to collude with environmentalists in order to help secure Obama’s green legacy by enacting carbon controls on fossil fuels rather than properly and efficiently preventing catastrophes like what happened at the Gold King mine in Silverton, Colorado.
