Sulfate-reducing bacteria are those bacteria and archaea that obtain their energy by oxidizing organic compounds [like methane] or molecular hydrogen H2 while reducing sulfates to sulfides, especially to hydrogen sulfide. CorrosionIn engineering, sulfate-reducing bacteria can create problems when metal structures are exposed to sulfate-containing water: interaction of water and metal creates a layer of molecular hydrogen on the metal surface; sulfate reducing bacteria then oxidize the hydrogen while creating hydrogen sulfide, thus contributing to corrosion.
"free market" or "deregulation" or "getting government off our backs" it is all that Ayn Rand horse manure that the plutocrats have taken up. When the political pendulum swings too far in either direction the result is trouble....A few years back the board of directors at PG&E voted themselves massive retirement packages and then retired...leaving the company to go into "reorganization"....now it turns out that this particular stretch of gas main was on their high risk list....the very existence of such a list is a crime.Whether it's BP or PG&E it's the same old story of big money buying off the government regulators and innocent people being victimized. That's not an at of GOD that's a crime and it's going to go on until guilty people are put in prison.
Golly Gee! Do you think the plutocrats may be just lying to us about wanting a free market when all the time they are scamming us so they can have a monopoly?Isn't that against the law?Meanwhile PG&E announced a $100 million Santa Claus pay out to the people in San Bruno. This will not come from the ratepayers, but from the Board of Directors' own pockets. And then I woke up...
