TX PIPELINE pinhole LEAKS PARAXYLENE – your clothing & food Plastics Poison of Preference

http://alerts.skytruth.org/report/7242db69-2403-3aa8-97e5-99cef08dba62#c=stae reported near Texas City a release of Paraxylene.

Toxic Paraxlyene is used in clothing among other “useful?” products.

You know the shits bad if Chinese citizens revolt against new PX Plants (remember the big explosions in 2013 & 2015 following/justifying the prior protests?)…and so we leaked it in Texas recently and I seriously question if it was ONLY 100 pounds and also wonder how long did that leak persist?

Hey folks do we really need these kinds of products which supply us those “jobs” (that keep the oncologists, pharmaceuticals and mortuary businesses booming)? How about asking your representative to make legislation to price those products to include those socialized and biospherized costs ASSociated with its production?

The other thing we can do is REDUCE our consumption/demand for these trinkets.

And then there is that Blue Drum that washed up near Corpus Christi the other day WTF was in that?

…but wait theres more……read HERE about this school in Louisiana that has been advised to have the children WASH their hands after playing in the contaminated soil.

Any of these addresses by you? CHANCES are they did NOT get cleaned up-just forgiven…in the interest of redevelopment. That is called an MSD (Municipal Setting Designation).

Arlington can make Ranger Baseball fans NOT WAIT 4 comfort

#ASKJERRY

Arlington plans to rebuild Ranger Stadium (Globe Life Park) with A/C & retractable roof. HOW BOUT TAKE CARE OF YOUR FAN BASE NOW NOT LATER? The Coliseum in California is home to both the Oakland A’s and the Oakland Raiders. You can go on youtube and watch an 18 hour time-lapsed transformation of the playing field…
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hn_6rcaPIE so why not have ATT Stadium host the Ranger baseball games using ATF FUNDS NOW to pay for staff and field expenses? Use this HERE & almost NOW enticement as insurance with a contract agreeing that they stay here and only use the Ranger Stadium on beautiful weather days. Or do this as a goodwill gesture for hopefully NEXT summer’s Ranger games-we owe it to the fan base to be comfortable NOW not later. I’m not hip on any tax increases because of water bill rate hikes risks (which in an urban drilling community raises that risk)…recently legislators approved HB1 for a water rate hike….
Families want to be outside when the weather is nice and Arlington hosts both venues in laughably close proximity. Why make them wait for a new Ranger Stadium to be built?

Lockdown or Evacuate from your neighborhood fracking site?

When an Arlington resident called 911 and told the dispatcher she wasn’t making him feel warm and fuzzy in NOT being able to tell him if he should evacuate away from a nearby spewing frack site, it would have been nice to at least get the beeps and whistles as the drama was unfolding. It was sad that folks had to keep calling back 911 that night and it took some time before dispatchers realized that this was one of two gas leak events happening in southeast AND in southwest Arlington in April of 2011.

Oklahoma frack STACK plays in the quake shake zones

Previously, STACK wells were conventional, vertical wells that went through different stacks of shale (pay zones). Today in the news is the STACK play in Oklahoma in the Meramec shale which stands for: Sooner Trend (oil field), Anadarko (basin), & counties, Canadian and Kingfisher.
STACK wells  in north Oklahoma over their lifetime costs the same to drill regular wells but have coveted higher (initial) production numbers than regular reservoirs with less concentrated hydrocarbons or less pressure. I’ve read that STACK WELLS can have longer laterals which also make them more economical.
So STACK wells seem 2 B the frack of choice acreage in weathering the downturn in pricing in the oil & gas markets; gleefully solar prices and battery storage technologies continue to improve AND decline in costs.
Oklahoma, however, is also getting notoriety for their frackquakes so I ask….is fracking in the high pressured STACK plays causing even more earthquakes? I dunno because there are also injection wells in those two counties. http://newsok.com/earthquakes. Either way we reap what they sow.
In April of 2016, Chesapeake sold off 42,000 net acres in the Anadarko “STACK” for $470 million.
There is also in SCOOP (South  central Oklahoma oil province in the Woodford shale), and SoHot  (southern Oklahoma Hoxbar oil trend which is reported to have six stacked sands).
Please take the time to NOT enjoy this OMG interview with Chris Faulkner on whats important in his opinion….

TX HB1″Up-To” water fee adds 7,000 entities 2 share water appropriation burden can be as high as 100% increases & as low as 14-25%

Here is the link to TCEQ’s executive summary on HB1 to meet water funding demands for PUBLIC WATER SYSTEMS. The “up-to” fee structure can provide for the multiple years following this approval of HB1.

“Using the PHS (Public Health Service) fee to supplement some of the costs will result in an additional 7,000 entities sharing the burden, and limits the potential fee burden of each.” 

The email from TCEQ partially read….

On May 11, 2016, TCEQ commissioners adopted a rule implementing House Bill (HB) 1, Article IX, Section 18.01, 84th Texas Legislature.  The legislation directed the agency to raise fee rates by rule to ensure adequate revenue is available to support the agency’s water appropriation”.

Here is the old verses “UP TO” increase/limitations & TCEQ’s projected 2017 rates….

                Tier                           OLD             “UP TO increase”       2017 anticipated 

 I (<25 connections)            $100                          $200                            $125        

 II (25–160 connections)  $175                             $300                           $200

III (>160 connections)   $2.15 per connection   $4.00                       $2.45            

Pending we don’t have a FLINT via Fracking or whatever systemic water quality nightmare….in 2017 it is anticipated that the change/increase in rates are as follows:

Tier I goes up a whopping 25% (up to 100%)

Tier II goes up 14% (up to 71%)

Tier III goes up 14% (up to 86%)

What a water (fracking risk) bargain? 

In a worst case scenario the drillers won’t be bearing this cost if fracking causes widespread contamination/clean water availability issues.

Ask Chesapeake 2 CEIP Create Jobs in Low Income Padsite Areas

Poor AND live by a fracking site? The government has a Clean Energy Incentive Program for low income areas that they will be taking public comment on for you to provide input as to how much money should be in this federal program.

Lets AskChesapeake to apply for matching allowance$$$$ under the CEIP to enclose ALL their storage tanks & lift compressors, employ gas busters to suck up emissions, and then safely install solar panels on all of these newly built solar-panel-ready structures.

If feasible, this will serve at least three purposes:

  1. clean up the localized airshed emissions (cut down on ozone too) coming off of these padsites. This should also include other (qualifying) related oil & gas infrastructures such as lift stations, compressor/dehydrator stations, & gas plants,
  2. create jobs
  3. go towards the units needed to participate in the Paris Climate Accord that Trump isn’t on board with.….Reuters reported, “A renegotiation of the pact would be a major setback for what was hailed as the first truly global climate accord, committing both rich and poor nations to reining in the rise in greenhouse gas emissions blamed for warming the planet”.

If we start with two high profile padsites like in Arlington Texas, we may be able to get media attention to jump start other locations. This can help other drilling operators to take notice and take action while reducing allowable costs involved in needing to be compliant to existing federal (CPP Clean Power Plan) and global (warming) initiatives. The Chesapeake Truman & Chesapeake General Motors padsites near the ATT Stadium, Rangers Stadium, & Six Flags near Arlington Texas’ Entertainment District are in low income areas….Screen shot 2016-03-26 at 4.30.06 PM

So what if Bernie is NOT the candidate for president, we can at least thank his staff for directing us to this program. From there we ALL should comment on having adequate funds for this idea.

Heres to HOPING the frackers and our fracked up Texas representatives meet the requirements and buy into job creation to support their fossil fuel ADDICTIONS imposed in low income communities.

What you don’t see or smell at these storage tanks CAN still expose you….

Today I emailed Chesapeake and the EPA on the feasibility of this and tonight I will sleep well knowing I tried.

ATTENTION drugs Adderall Vyvanse Ritalin Beware Brain Tumors May Masquerade as ADHD Symptoms

New study: #rare #brain #tumors removed= 3 of 9 kids ADHD symptom free! A new study, https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/rare-cancers-may-masquerade-adhd-children-nih-researchers-suggest, reported that 21% of the 43 children studied with two types of brain tumors were already previously diagnosed as ADHD. Almost half of those children were (needlessly) on ADHD meds which contain amphetamine, dextroamphetamine or methylphenidate/Ritalin.

Years ago I had my son BTEX tested since I wanted a blood/urine BTEX baseline because a drill site was to be near our home by the ATT Stadium in Arlington (gasland) Texass. I’ll never forget the day his pediatrician called to say my son needed to be retested when he tested high for vanillylmandelic acid (VMA) which are catecholamines (an end-stage metabolite of epinephrine, and norepinephrine). 

Catecholamines,  act as neuromodulators in the central nervous system and as hormones in the blood circulation.  Tumors, Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomassecrete catecholamines. With my son having two “abnormally high” VMA test results, I took him to an endocrinologist who concluded he was fine. However as a mom I still suspect something is going on even as the years have passed.

Recently as a Baxter stock owner, I had to decided if I wanted to participate in a stock swap offering for Baxalta stock which is being merged to become Shire for which a popular drug they own is Vyvanse. This drug, which is said to be less addicting than Adderall, is another ADHD drug choice. A complaint of Vyvanse is that it was fast tracked without the years of trials because it was the only known drug for treating life threatening binge eating.

This new report of most children NOT needing ADHD drugs IF they have brain tumors has me off again looking to be sure my son is “OK” (brain tumors can make the blood pressure high, trigger anxiety attacks, sweating, etc …).

As a potential stock owner in Vyvanse I chose to hang on to my Baxter stock instead of buying into stock for an amphetamine drug that may be easy to prescribe if you fake being a binge eater. I now have a better understanding about pharmaceutical  “focus” drugs that are being abused in colleges as a “study-buddy high”. 

If YOU, your fetus, or your children (live in the shale and) have been exposed to endocrine disruptors AND if your kid is diagnosed as ADHD…..please have the doctor check the catecholamine levels…it may be an operable, nonmalignant brain tumor.

And so the populations have yet another reason to NOT take a pill.

Likewise we don’t want fracking messing up our endocrine systems living by urban drilling…..we have enough bombardments to contend with as it is.

Thank you for reading

Abstract of fracking fear of food from fossil fuel frack-ups

BREAKING! ABSTRACT posted in the American Chemical Society entitled

Spills of Hydraulic Fracturing Chemicals on Agricultural Topsoil: Biodegradation, Sorption, and Co-Contaminant Interactions

partly reads “Hydraulic fracturing frequently occurs on agricultural land. Yet, the extent of sorption, transformation, and interactions among the numerous organic frac fluid and oil and gas wastewater constituents upon environmental release is hardly known. …Polyethylene glycol surfactants were completely biodegraded in agricultural topsoil within 42 to 71 days, but their transformation was impeded in the presence of the biocide glutaraldehyde and completely inhibited by salt at concentrations typical for oil and gas wastewater. At the same time, aqueous glutaraldehyde concentrations decreased due to sorption to soil, and were completely biodegraded within 33 to 57 days….. These findings highlight the necessity to consider co-contaminant effects when we evaluate the risk of frac fluid additives and oil and gas wastewater constituents in agricultural soils in order to fully understand their human health impacts, likelihood for crop uptake, and potential for groundwater contamination.”

About (poly)acrylamide…..I just blogged about that….

https://barnettshalehell.wordpress.com/2016/05/04/coffee-toast-french-frys-the-other-fracking-acrylamide-carcinogen/

U better tune in on the food risk I speak about there….to be advised on how to cut down your carcinogenic food borne acrylamide risks.

About the scary chemicals and their time frame and their unknown additive effects in relation to endocrine disruption, I just blogged about the intersex risks with fracking on our human populations since transgender bathrooms is in the news…read here….https://barnettshalehell.wordpress.com/2016/05/11/intersex-bathrooms-endocrine-disruptions-the-chesapeake-bay-way/

About the picture…..this is a picture of my parrots “sick poop” when she went to the vet and later I correlated it with weird Arlington tap water issues with my noticing standing water turning moldy in my sink and then having a white residue from hand washing utensils NOT easily coming clean….which has never happened before AND I was using the same dish washing liquid.  If a “change” in our water made my bird $$$ sick, then think about a change in our food being fracked….how expensive will that be in terms of human health?

Intersex Bathrooms & Endocrine Disruptions the Chesapeake Bay Way

Screen shot 2016-03-20 at 11.03.37 PMIn the news recently has been how to figure out WHICH bathroom trans-gendered teens need to use. I have to ask if  intersex  (endocrine disruption) gender confusion (?) issues have increased and become mainSTREAM for HUMANS because of pollution getting downstream into our drinking water?

I’m betting the short answer is hell fracking YES! UPDATE someone else agrees…….http://www.sustainablebusinesstoolkit.com/fracking-could-change-your-sex/“….polar bears have been left with stumps instead of penises, panthers have atrophied testicles and fish are intersex. This is tantamount to seeing canaries in coal mines keel over“.

NCBI wrote a quote of vom Saal who published papers in the Journal of Animal Science throughout 1989,“We found that a difference of about a part per billion of testosterone and about twenty parts per trillion of estradiol [endogenous estrogen] actually predict entirely different brain structures, behavioral traits, enzyme levels, and receptor levels in tissues, hormonal levels in the blood…”

This Washington Post story https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2016/05/11/this-mystery-was-solved-scientists-say-chemicals-from-fracking-wastewater-can-taint-fresh-water-nearby/ speaks of a West Virginia watershed downstream from a fracking related injection well having detected low level endocrine disrupting chemicals (Barium,bromide,chloride,sodium,strontium) that can affect the food chain. They mention how “In the Chesapeake Bay watershed that includes bays, rivers, streams and creeks in six states and the District of Columbia, scientists have determined that endocrine disruptors have switched the testes of male smallmouth bass to ovaries“.

Still not convinced? Here is a 2014 LATimes article where intersex fish (male fish carrying eggs) were found by a U.S. Geological Survey in three Pennsylvania rivers: Susquehanna, Delaware and Ohio river basins.

I have blogged about Atrazine-the-sex-change-queen where Rapper, Tyrone Hayes, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MxrH4lN0-A) studied an African frog. A Mother Jones article  wrote of Tyrone’s frog …

“He’s female.

Genetically, Darnell is male. But after being raised in water contaminated with the herbicide atrazine at a level of 2.5 parts per billion—slightly less than what’s allowed in our drinking water—he developed a female body, inside and out. He is also the mother of his children, having successfully mated with other males and spawned clutches of eggs.”

One of the papers that this Harvard summa cum laude and Phd Berkeley graduate is working on will “show that male frogs exposed to atrazine early in life have feminized brains and tend to assume the bottom position when copulating…”

A 2013 CBS article says the higher the fracking area, the higher the EDC’s (endocrine disruption chemicals) found.

Arlington TX had from 1996 through the first quarter of 1998 (how old were your children then?-mine were still in elementary school)… to have detected 10 times at a minimum of .15 ppb to a maximum of 1.8 ppb. Dallas had similar readings, and Ft Worth had 16 detections with a minimum of .56 ppb to a maximum of 3.1 ppb.

….dang it if I knew I wasn’t done blogging about this topic….oh frack!

I predict that it is feasible to say the new birth control will be how humans will be unable to become impregnated in heavily polluted areas….now thats one smart Mother Fracking Natured Bitch!
