I’ll have more later but this made me so mad I can’t wait to post it.
Carla Kinslow, TCEQ Toxicology said that there is only about a 1 in 1,000 chance of dying from benzene exposure.
Erm, nice try, Carla, but it’s the CANCER you get from benzene exposure that concerns people facing the realities of a Barnett Shale gas well in their neighborhood for the next 30 years. So, Carla, what are the chances of contracting cancer when exposed to benzene regularly over the next 30 years?
Sheesh! Is that manipulative enough?
UPDATE: I got an email this morning from Calvin Tillman, Mayor of DISH. He said: “I’ve got news for you, 1 in 1000 ain’t that good.”
