Chemical Soup: It’s What’s For Dinner

More Exciting News From Trump HQ!

Texas, the US Lab for Bad Policy, continues to suffer under the loving care of Preznint Stupid who only weeks ago decided to erase a chemical safety regulation put in place by the Kenyan Usurper that would let the public — and the first responders — know what kind of toxic soup they were wading into.

The site’s owner, Arkema, has complained about the burdens of the rule, which the EPA created after a 2015 explosion at a Texas fertilizer plant killed 15 people, injured about 200 others and destroyed hundreds of homes.

 So you know those blasts that were reported last night in Texas? Firefighters and other emergency crews lack information about the plants and factories now awash with floodwater, and no one knows what’s in it.

“I’d put it on the scale of 9/11 health risk,” said [James Norton, a former deputy assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security under President George W. Bush], now the head of the consulting group Play-Action Strategies. “There was a similar challenge in Katrina, as the standing water around the city kind of became a chemical sludge. The risk in Houston is greater.”

If you have a few extra Ameros hanging around, please consider donating to the Red Cross Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief Fund.

    Try the Houston Food Bank. Charity Navigator 4-star rated, good people.

    The Red Cross, they’ll find a way somehow to build half a dozen houses. Meh.

    I donated most of my money to the San Antonio and Central Texas food banks- SA and Austin are dealing with evacuees. I rounded up a grocery bill to twenty with a Red Cross donation, and bought a couple of items online from a company that’s donating all proceeds to Harvey relief. I gave the bulk of the funds to food banks because they don’t have high paid executives and provide immediate care.

    Regarding the long-term problems due to pollution, I hate to say it, but these Texans are on their own as far as I’m concerned. Their anti-environmentalism is a toxic combination of greed and hippie-punching spite. They need to figure shit out and clean up their own mess, politically as well as environmentally.
