Yet for the people of Marshall, Michigan, John Bolenbaugh may be the best chance they’ve got to hold a multinational corporation accountable for its ineptitude and arrogant disregard of their welfare. Scott Dodd is the editorial director of NRDC, which publishes OnEarth
KindleProject.org loves this project because... John Bolenbaugh’s selfless devotion to transparency and exposing dirty oil cover-up’s, makes him a champion whistle blower. John is a natural community organizer and mobilizer, tirelessly advocating for human and environmental health in the face of polluting industry.
What he has captured on video is undeniable. Bolenbaugh’s caustic style has made him a divisive figure among locals — a selfless hero to some, … crusader to others. Ted Genoways, OnEarth‘s editor-at-large, is a author and has won six National Magazine Award
Enbridge screwed up bad. They stopped caring about people. This is a piss poor company that should care more about people than oil. They should care about their environment that they’re living in. do you want to drink oil for your coffee? Money ain’t everything. Thank you John for doing the right thing when no one else would. Union worker Rob
“ John is very necessary, in order for things to progress and get to where we need them to get. Some times it takes a person like John. To do exactly what people like Dr. Martin L. King did. To be Bold enough and confident enough to do the the right thing to make a difference in the lives of people. The things John has done, is now getting the results we are looking for to correct the wrong. One thing I loved about John was that he wasn’t getting paid to do this. Its something he deeply and passionately believed in. There are many of us county and local official that stand by John. I am confident that I am standing next to the right guy, because John did what was right. ” Michigan House of Repersentatives: Terrance Todd

UNDER OATH: TRUTH IS WE DIDN’T HAVE A CLUE. There was a lot of cover up and lies… It was a lot more dangerous than People wanted to publicize… From our S.E.T supervisor in front of our entire crew “Per Enbridge orders, Enbridge doesn’t want anyone talking to the EPA if they do you will be gone”. John got fired for talking to the EPA. I am fighting back tears, you have no idea how upsetting this is. People are sick and dying over this stuff… Whats going to happen to me 10 to 15 years down the road? Enbridge was more worried about the P.R… You have to have a conscious, what is a human life worth, what is the towns safety worth… The workers were putting there lives on the line for Public relations… To be honest if John wouldn’t have made all the stink he made you guys would have been gone a long time ago after the first season and would have only done the minimum… Enbridge was forced to come back because of John. Maybe Enbridge had the EPA in their pockets because they were closing down areas and we were still getting oil up. It was ridiculous, it wasn’t done! I am only here because I am being forced to testify and I have to tell the truth. I don’t personally like John even though he tried to be extra nice to me. He just rubbed me the wrong way because he was rocking the boat and I didn’t want to lose my job… John dug into this deeper, what John did was the right thing. I think this world needs more John Bolenbaughs in it, because I Kevin Jacobs obviously didn’t step up. ”
I now know from experience John is a man of integrity and Honor. John has spent countless hours exposing Enbridge corruption. His dedication to his community, to the State of Michigan and to this Nation is proof of his selfless service. John is a true red blooded American hero that loves his country and the people in it. John would do anything and everything for his fellow man. ” Garret Murry
