I'm Not sure how many of you have seen the ESPN C'Mon Man segment - it is always entertaining. It highlights a blooper reel of outrageous acts of misjudgment, miscalculations, or plain old fashioned hiccups in routine sporting events. My most recent series of flights overlapped with a number of national and international calamities that brought this show to mind.

In 1994, it was discovered that acid mine drainage had been forming on the embankment at the tailings facility at the Thompson Creek Mine since 1987. Agencies and the mine finally took action in the late 1990s to remove and/or bury acid-forming sands on the site. This pollution will last in perpetuity. The mining company is currently collecting this discharge and treating it, but no money has been set aside to continue water quality treatments after the mine closes.
