8:30 pm
an issue in the biggest issue would be to to ground water as i see it when we live in rural areas most of us depend on wells for our our drinking water and all the water we use in our homes so if that would happen it would be a very bad thing. i was wrong that fraction job that's where they pump the sand the fluid and the other chemicals because they use as it is one they use a chemical called bio bio it kills all biological elements so so when they pumped out that off into ground any kind of bacteria is going to kill it any kind of a living organism of any kind it kills it because of one of our guy has. got some of it on his hands and i and i just i'm just swallow his hand we're bad because that's what my old bio bio kills biological. anything.
8:31 pm
i'm pretty sure is it's is wrong in the water. for an issue that is as is the nobody drinks the water out of iron stepfather from north dakota i think everybody drank so bottled water you know it just it's just like if you ever. drop water on the out of the faucet night isn't this it it's pretty nasty when we're fracking no oil or grease is allowed to be spilled on the ground if you make an a mistake and you drop one cop you have to clean it up and take it away with you it's not polluting north dakota the air is clean the water is clean. this is privately owned land this is not government land any less the environmental protection agency finds scientific proof that there is real pollution going on they won't be able to shut this down. and so far there is no proof.
8:32 pm
there's just. propaganda. is it possible to respect safety measures while tracking. down how to pain is advocating this notion in an attempt to avoid all risk of polluting groundwater it seems to success is very unlikely either this question is me raised to scratch the attention of anti-fashion groups. one thing is certain the practice of hydraulic fracking to be as large quantities of drinking water. ten young is the owner of the clip services a company that facilitates the shipping of water for fracking through pipelines and provides water storage and its huge tanks as well. the thanks for that used to hold water for the fracking. thirty five thousand barrels and so they'll pump water from one to the other until eventually it's over to the frac and down
8:33 pm
the hole. it's fresh water all that water thrown in here is coming out of the city water line so it's all clean water. you know that's been millions of dollars on water for one frac is one of the biggest expenses or one of these wells the fresh. water after the frac they just log back out of the ground and they haul it off to a disposal facility. right here this is called a flare natural gas comes up with the oil and so they have to get rid of it so they just burn it off right here loyal comes out of the pump jacks goes underground to the treaters in there it separates the oil the water in the gas this site here produces more water than what they can pipeline out here so i have to come in.
8:34 pm
truck in truck that out to get that disposal facility. keith there live sixty miles out of the list and on fort berthold reservation for black gold flows freely that accounts for one quarter of north dakota's production . this oil field isn't all that good for everybody we have sacred land here we have virgin land here and now there's oil roads and oil fields. at night time some of these trucks to drive along gravel roads and they don't poison. rocking water it's all water all the things into the ditch. because they're too lazy to drive to the dump station and that it's going into our river going into our critics it's going into our spot on. this is not in the water but it is you know they're not telling the truth i have twenty nine grandchildren i want them to
8:35 pm
enjoy this river where i do don't want them to walk in the water i want them to catch a fish you can eat you know want to grow a garden do won't have to worry about poisoning the planet i want to have plants with their medicine that's not before and now because of the things that are in the water. oil workers are best suited to judge the eventual pollution is caused by fracking. unfortunately this problem is not a priority they are in survival mode first and foremost they are in need of or. during the journey phase radioactive to prepare out back to the surface is a major risk for workers and the environment some companies clearly are not concerned and do not hesitate to dispose of these toxic materials into wild dumps. specialty teams are left to ship them back to suitable treatment states.
8:36 pm
in north dakota no one with an oil rich piece of land will tell you that fracking could be an environmental hazard doing so could jeopardize one of the best ways to get rich quick. of course all beautiful stories have an end run around christmas two thousand and fourteen all science turned red thanks to saudi arabia. the staggering fall of the price per barrel of oil put it into the moment if you phoria saw the u.s. rise in the first producers of crude oil face to shale. we can feel the concern brought by the price cut everywhere and will is to now shows the science of a boom town going to. people in this town are very very suspicious of oil booms because that almost always comes with a large bust and the bust to be rather difficult and now that i'm
8:37 pm
a part of this town i'm a little bit worried because we're seeing gas prices start to drop down and i'm wondering what's going to happen to my business because we have a message here. january two thousand and fifteen the price per barrel fell below the crucial fifty dollars mark. in this little town here west and is a major major reason why the price of oil around the world is coming down because the opec countries saudi arabia leading them there out there they're very scared by the. developments in hydraulic fracturing they know that the united states in the past five years went from importing something like sixty percent of the oil that we use down to thirty percent and that is a direct result of the hydraulic fracturing that's taken place like here and williston in the box and in other areas they want to put these companies out of business. even if circumstances are worrisome these days i think he has not stopped
8:38 pm
after taking ten thousand wells we still need to extract the millions of barrels lying beneath the pocket. this situation brings happiness to the one person for serious companies but it is devastating to the oil workers who are no longer needed they are thrown out into the streets without pity they must decide whether to go back home or stay liston looking for new jobs. and very rarely twenty fifteen want one of my coworkers i worked with he called me and he said managers laid everybody off. he's in a told everybody to go to a room get all a stuff in get out and this will two o'clock in the morning at night in february in the winter. a man can say emptied out enclosed why day to the next.
8:39 pm

8:40 pm
make more money than i can back home. just. now as much they're used to. i consider myself fortunate because i still have a job just talk no friend just yesterday he got laid off so he's got to go back to louisiana to find find work. because there are not too many people hiring or. you know world of big part of the new law and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the bad and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle
8:41 pm
for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. while give easy voth and this s. . and. julian said one flag yes south yeah. rational a south and. desire to live need the thought. that the new doll cause i'm not playing. dumb the pull me up i peeked in the zimmer full video from chile the systems that i'm sure the slits didn't see. a bill in co yes my small fortune in that indeed your good.
8:42 pm
fortune for me out may be a lot about it. more than enough to show us financial. goals . i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the u.s. has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crime stamping each dish. eighty five percent of global wealth you launch of the ultra rich eight point six percent market saw a thirty percent rise last year some with four hundred to five hundred three per second per second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building a two point one billion dollar a i industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need
8:43 pm
to remember is one in one business shows you can't afford to miss the one and only boom bust. cycle bamma really was very european and his approach he would be very well suited is an m.e.p. in brussels for example is that doesn't represent america trump is america for better or worse and i think what we're trying to do here is to let the world see what we're all about here. it's hard. but. i made them good money in our bills offer them a role to help my children out. my
8:44 pm
children are very poor. just something that has to be good. you know it's it's just like this job too you know two nights ago i wanted to go home i was tired. but. the roof was high takes we we had to haul the water otherwise to the well shut down and. people get upset so. you do what you have to do.
8:45 pm
in the oil. adults has slowed down but still steady and you know doing just well doing three jobs every day of the week. the donors show up it's work about sixty eight hours. in the day for the guy doing construction maybe five or six. and this he's now working out three or four making the sandwiches and.
8:46 pm
i read this place to adam for only three hundred fifty dollars a month he has the whole downstairs to himself. which is a little bit messy. he had to leave california because there's no jobs why is there no jobs there's too many mexicans who do the same job i was doing for half the price. you know how many donuts oh. wow. they were twenty four dozen or. been encouraging out of to save some money. so that he can move his family here and put a deposit first and last month's rent on an apartment is
8:47 pm
a good father he misses a little girl. missing. when oil reached twenty nine dollars a barrel we weren't doing anything march was a bad month but now it's suddenly picked up to forty dollars a barrel and we're busy again the companies have done so much cost cutting and efficiency that if the price goes to fifty it will be like it used to be eighty. the rig counts the number of rigs drilling new holes in the ground has gone way down from over two hundred to i think thirty five rigs active in the block and. as time goes on without new wells being drilled and frats our one point one million barrels a day will go down naturally slowly in some point in the two to five years there
8:48 pm
will be a supply and demand reversal whereas now we're oversupplied will be under supplied and the price will shoot up. between now and then it will go like this and at some point it will go up. and if the price go ever goes to one hundred and it will some day. north dakota will be crawling with workers looking for housing and there will be a huge labor shortage the companies will be throwing money at us. now we're mostly working for folks who have oil rigs oil pumps on their land and they have those monthly checks coming in from the oil companies and they're spending money on their homes. or lot of people have disappeared out here gone back home i guess i know some are gone back to the bozeman big sky area because construction is doing ok there some went back to minneapolis some idaho but yeah
8:49 pm
a lot of people have left here i don't know too many people here anymore they're all gone just slow down too much they lost their jobs got laid off so couldn't put in the hours a lot of families to a lot of guys in the oil business the higher ups the guys making more money they've gone to south america and the middle east so they'll be back i guess someday but. so that's the edge of her. process. sort of her cleaning the litter. i could buy a house and i did i could stay in
8:50 pm
a very nice apartment but i don't need it and i have very low overhead and i like it that way i don't have a lot of needs. and this is the. issue this was a barn garage and there was a snow storm and heavy snow storm about three years ago i suppose and the snow load on the roof caused the roof to collapse so anyway it's kind of an open air garage and i. have a hose hooked up in there and i walk. into the oil industry has changed dramatically and i don't like to see that i see companies going out of business and people being fired and laid off and loading up a u.-haul trailers and heading out of town and it's sad. it hasn't really affected
8:51 pm
me because. we service the infrastructure that has been built and once that infrastructure is built it still needs to be maintained i'm very thankful for that. so tonight will form new. one of the last minute rush. but it's nice to have the company and i actually enjoy . as i said before if you're really outside of. the former girlfriend came all
8:52 pm
the times oh you're like the only visitors that i've had here. in the over four years that i've been with most. i used to be far far far too interested in girls. that like politics i've come to realize well politics is a scam girls are just problems. so i stay away from both up. for.

8:55 pm
is still a boom will come back but if it does it'll be much much more shallow a growth curve. and won't be nearly as. much money and. i'm not. going to try the optimist. i think it's going to come back.
