I live in Western North Dakota on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation. There are thousands of oil and gas sites in my community. The amount of natural gas being released into the air is staggering. The chemicals that are found in the unburned material released in the flares you can see in my picture are known to be carcinogens. I am deeply worried about the long term effects on the health of the people who breathe this air on a constant basis.
