Truthout Radio: Mike Ludwig and the Bayou Frack-Out

Sunday, 09 December 2012 13:36 By Ted Asregadoo, Truthout | Video Interview

Ted Asregadoo talks to Mike Ludwig from Truthout about his article "Bayou Frack-Out: The Massive Oil and Gas Disaster You've Never Heard Of." In Assumption Parish in Louisiana, a massive sinkhole appeared in the bayou that quickly filled up with oil, natural gas and brine. Residents had to evacuate, and the USGS eventually determined that the sinkhole was caused by a salt cavern (owned by Texas Brine) that collapsed -- sending natural gas, brine and oil shooting to the surface. Mike discusses the fallout of this disaster and how no one is sure how to clean up this mess because it's so unprecedented.
