  •  This is a ridiculous statement. (0+ / 0-)

    It's almost certainly false, and you can't possibly know how much of that light, let alone state that it's a "large portion", is from flared natural gas.   Thus, the picture is misleading in the worst way.

    A large component of those lights in western North Dakota is flaring of natural gas from shale oil wells.

    Many hands make light work, but light hearts make heavy work the lightest of all.
