The people in DISH are breathing moth balls! Well, that’s only one of the many dangerous chemicals. Carbon Disulfide might be what makes the baby animals go to sleep and never wake up.
Alisa Rich, Principal, Wolf Eagle Environmental Engineers and Consultants is giving a presentation on the study that showed “amazing and very high levels” of carcinogens and neurotoxins in DISH.
Eidt: Alisa Rich delivered the most horrifying news to DISH citizens about health affects they can expect from exposure to such high concentrations of chemicals. It was overwhelming and highly technical but her delivery was peppered with well-placed humor and grace making the bad news as palatable as possible.
I’m not going to even pretend that I understand all this but it’s scary as hell. Here are some things Alisa found that I do understand:
“Dead plants…scalded trees…lots of dead plant materials”
Even cedar trees die in DISH! I didn’t think ANYTHING could kill cedar trees but there sure are a lot of dead cedars here in DISH.
While we were out doing the Flir GasFinder camera demo today we saw emissions BOILING out of these facilities. It’s right next to a horse farm where there are many sick horses.
Alisa is urging DISH residents to complete the health survey. She is explaining the health affects of all these chemicals.
Please pray for the residents of DISH. Please pray for the residents in all areas where natural gas development occurs.
Clean energy? Are we sure we want this for our bridge fuel?
Did you know that the oil and gas industry has broad exemptions from all our federal environmental laws that lets them pollute and harm public health and safety?
Update: Some of the chemicals travel for miles.
The chemicals end up in our soil and water.
Children breathe more or have a higher transfer rate of oxygen so they absorb chemicals faster and more.
UPDATE: Some NOT ALL of the emissions can be eliminated with scrubbers and vapor recovery devices,
