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."
