6/7/16 DFW PURPLE ozone alert 5pm-luv fracking now?

Screen shot 2016-06-13 at 9.43.54 AMScreen shot 2016-06-13 at 9.42.54 AMOzone is a corrosive gas….we are breathing it. It destroys our buildings, crops, & lungs…any fracking questions?

Purple Ozone Alert-very unhealthy…everyone may experience more serious health effects

update 6/8/16 the HOUSE passes* HR4775 for regulatory relief against the pains of implimenting better public protections from ozone (lower ppbs)…this bill may NOT become law…hmmm

 

purple ozoneAfter lunch I started watching the Airnow.gov website. Later in the day Jim Schermbeck of Downwinders At Risk commented that the monitor at the Arlington airport had 100 ppb ozone as an hourly average. I saw the AQI (Air Qualtity Index) go from Orange 126, to RED at 166 around 2 pm. It moved to 177 around 3 pm and then it jumped from 185 to PURPLE at 203 by 4pm. It is now 6 pm as I type this and wonder how much higher it will go before it goes down?

Now my son is attending summer school at UTA and is breathing that as I type this. My husband, a throat cancer survivor, is in his truck en-route home breathing that. His oncologist advised him to not be outside on ozone alert days. I was supposed to get groceries hours ago but thought I’d wait for the reading to go down instead they are going up.

HR4775  https://energycommerce.house.gov/news-center/fact-sheets/hr-4775-ozone-standards-implementation-act-2016

 

WHAT THE ACT WILL DO:

Existing Ozone Standards: The Act would:

  1. Phase in implementation of the 2008 and 2015 ozone standards, extending to 2025 the date for final designations under the 2015 standards; and
  2. Align permitting requirements under the phased implementation schedule.

NAAQS Process: The Act would:

  1. Change the mandatory review of NAAQS from 5 to 10 years, while allowing the EPA Administrator discretion to issue revised standards earlier;
  2. Authorize the EPA Administrator to consider technological feasibility as a secondary consideration when revising NAAQS;
  3. Ensure the EPA Administrator, prior to revising NAAQS, obtains advice from the agency’s scientific advisory committee regarding potential adverse effects relating to implementation of the standards, as required by Section 109 of the Clean Air Act;
  4. Ensure the EPA Administrator issues timely implementation regulations and guidance when revising NAAQS;
  5. Ensure that for certain ozone and particulate matter nonattainment areas, states are not required to include economically infeasible measures in their plans;
  6. Ensure that states may seek relief with respect to certain exceptional events, including droughts, under Section 319 of the Clean Air Act; and
  7. Direct EPA to submit reports to Congress regarding (i) the impacts of foreign emissions on NAAQS compliance and related matters, including the agency’s current petition process under Section 179B of the Clean Air Act; and (ii) ozone formation and effective control strategies.

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
