BATTLE-OF-CHERNOBYL-6

 

Obama’s EPA is ready to radically raise the amount of radiation in our water.

Comments

Beyond Nuclear:

Tell EPA: don’t repeat Flint! Protect our drinking water from radioactivity!
The EPA is proposing VERY high radiation levels for drinking water that can be used not only for emergency releases, but in any instance governments and regulators wish to ignore more protective standards. Added to food and other exposures, these levels will be even more dangerous to public health.

These levels can be thousands of times higher than current EPA standards. There is indication in documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act that, in some cases, these allowed exposures could cause acute radiation effects, such as vomiting and fever. Clearly EPA doesn’t remember Flint, MI and how they utterly failed to protect public health, particularly health of pregnancies and children.

Further, EPA is basing its pregnancy and childhood exposure levels on nearly unobtainable reports from a scientific body that takes funding from the nuclear industry lobbying group, the NEI.
Time is short so A CALL is needed! PLEASE CALL Gina McCarthy at 202-564-4700.
Tell her it is unacceptable that EPA is ignoring their own drinking water and risk standards, which are more protective of public health, in favor of industry.
Tell her it is unacceptable that the EPA seems to be keeping from public scrutiny parts of the Protective Action Guide (PAG), such as all radionuclide levels allowed by the guide; and not providing complete documents on which the PAG is based.

Tell her it is unacceptable that EPA would base childhood exposure levels on a report from a group that takes money from industry lobbyists.

If you also wish to comment on these so-called Protective Action Guides, the DEADLINE for comments is July 25, 2016. Beyond Nuclear will be making detailed comments on EPA’s proposed levels.

The EPA has been occupied by hostile forces who seek to poison America for fun and profit. These are crimes and outrages.

CDC: Water at Marine base linked to birth defects

The telling part of the article, between the lines of course, is that the government has been dragging its feet since 1985 on this contamination!  Still covering it up and trying to talk it away as a “small sample size.”  Implication there is that unless they kill a hell of a lot of people — children in this case — they can argue it away forever as a “small sampling.”

Seems we have a deluded Obamite stooge hanging about.  Apparently the response to scientific facts one finds politically detrimental is more of the same propaganda from the same liars, as if words are more important than deeds.  Yes the living standard is plummeting precipitously here: any correlation?

Obama Climate Plan Touts Gas Fracking As “Transition Fuel,” Doubling Down on Methane Risk

 

There is a clear disconnect between the president’s stated commitment to a healthy future for children, and the vast expansion of natural gas drilling and fracking, which are scientifically proven to be polluting the air and drinking water of Americans.”

“That premise is false. When measured in its entire life cycle – as Cornell University researchers found – fracked gas is actually dirtier than coal  and therefore is a bridge to nowhere other than extreme climate disruption.”

 

First Study of Its Kind Detects 44 Hazardous Air Pollutants at Gas Drilling Sites

With gas wells in some states being drilled near schools and homes, scientists see a need for better chemical disclosure laws and follow-up research.

During the Fukushima onslaught of radiation, they abandoned America by scaling down their measurements and radiation detection programs.  Can’t have bad publicity over the nuclear industry poisoning the population, can we?

Now OBAMA’S fascist EPA is ignoring its own study of fracking and punting it back to the State of Wyoming to work out with the company.  The effects across the rest of the nation are of no concern.  Those poisoned in all the other locales will need to start from scratch and try and get the Reichs Ministers interested once again.  Good luck.

EPA Halts Study Linking Fracking with Water Pollution

“EPA officials said they will not finalize a 2011 draft study that found contaminants in the groundwater of Pavillion, Wyoming, were consistent with chemicals used in fracking.

They also said they will not ask outside experts to review the EPA’s research. Instead, the agency will turn the matter over to the state of Wyoming, which intends to work with Encana, the company that conducted the fracking, to resolve the problem.”
