The first GM Chesapeake padsite is called Escalade, the second one is called GM West. As if GM didn’t have enough pollution from their own vehicle plant…to that I say…
the seed of need…
they never have enough
…they never care who bleeds
update Aug 2014
I received the report from the Marion Indiana Fire department. According to the report the explosion was a bromide generator; there was not a chlorine dioxide generator on the premises. There was a 55gal drum of chlorine dioxide but it was intact. By the way, chlorine dioxide is used in many hospital and learning institutes drinking water. Chlorine dioxide is a very good disinfectant and is safe.
There was an RSOE reported chlorine dioxide tank explosion at the General Motors Indiana stamping plant yesterday (7/1/14) that killed one & injured five. This could’ve happened at OUR GM plant PLUS THE TWO ONSITE PADSITES OF GAS WELLS, STORAGE TANKS AND OTHER COMPRESSION,DEHYDRATING? EQUIPMENT.
If inhaled, the chemical can cause lung problems along with eye and skin irritation. Yesterday we had an ATT Stadium soccer viewing event...the winds were blowing that way…they usually blow that way. GM had (in 2011) self reported 562 tpy emissions….this does not include the on site gas well padsite emissions or the new stamping plant emissions.
GM + Chesapeake gas wells, storage tanks & compressors + Prevailing Winds
= crazy high risk for ATT Stadium / Entertainment District & all other downwinders like the Viridian.
What else made the news today?…..
