Chemical Danger: Industry Greed Putting Millions At Risk

   When it comes to chemical safety, we're
more at risk of industry incompetence or
greed, than a terrorist attack. Safer
alternatives exist so why won't industry
use them?
   Secure Water Facilities Act and Secure
Chemical Facilities Act would force
companies with high risk sites to apply
(IST) Inherently Safer Technology.
That would according to The American
Chemical Society "greatly reduce
potential threats to public and worker
safety, health and the environment
plant and public infrastructure from
a variety of scenarios that might
result in releases fugitive or otherwise,
of hazardous and toxic materials."

Fairfield Lake had fish kills in
2008 and 2009, but the one this
year, was much larger and came
earlier in the year. Estimated
loss 1,255,674  mostly thread
fin shad gizzard shad and tilapia.
Smaller quantities of game fish
such as, red drum, large mouthed
bass, and catfish.
Even though this happened in
late Aug. newspaper stories
didn't come out until the middle
of Sept. There is a power plant on
this lake, can be seen in picture,
does this contribute to oxygen
loss? Is this really normal?

Coal Ash: A National Problem Needs a National Solution

On Sept. 8th, 3 of our members
made the trip to Dallas for the
Coal ash/EPA/Sierra Club
meeting. Our objective was
to convince the EPA that coal
ash is toxic, and should be
classified as such. I've posted about
this before, and will continue
to stay informed on new de-
velopments. LINK

There were many speakers
there from OK, they had a lot
to say about a Co. called
Making Money Having Fun.
so here is a link on that.
