Google Earth KMZ Files Showing Drilling and Mining Operations Near WIPP

fol·ly
/ˈfälē/
noun: folly;

Definition:
1.  lack of good sense; foolishness.

The following Google Earth KMZ files reveal that the entire area surrounding the DOE waste Isolation Pilot Plant near Carlsbad, NM is riddled with active and abandoned drill sites, water injection wells, functioning oil wells and underground mining operations. An underground nuclear test (Project Gnome) was also conducted nearby.

Keep in mind that none of these representations should be considered comprehensive. There is likely much more taking place above and below the surface. Zooming in on the area in Google Earth reveals many well sites not explicitly identified by markers.
