    Fiery explosions overnight at a hazardous materials plant owned and run by Environmental Quality Industrial Services forced 16,000 residents in the middle of the night from their homes.
    EQ Industrial Services is based in Wayne, Michigan. Michael Ferrantino, CEO has given Michigan politicians quite a bit of money.
    Scores of people were hospitalized by the disaster caused by EQ Industrial Services in Apex, North Carolina.
    Roiling smoke and flames boiled 150 feet into the night air. A toxic plume of smoke drifted through the streets sickening everyone it came in contact with.
    Chemicals including cadmium, chromium, mercury and hazardous organic materials were burned at high temperature and cast into the air in minute droplets easily absorbed into the skin and through the mucous membrane in the nose and through the mouth and even ears of residents.
    EQ Industrial Services is associated with a company called Wayne Disposal. The EPA has Super Fund sites in Michigan. Those are locations so polluted that they are an immediate and present danger to the local population not to mention the environment. At one time the EPA declared that the company that owned one of the Super Fund sites in Wayne County, Michigan, must immediately clean it up. They allowed that company truck material from that landfill to another one that they owned. Nice arrangement for the company and the EPA but the problem is still here.
    In Apex, North Carolina, I understand that the chemicals that burned ignited some aviation fuel tanks nearby which made the situation worse.
    I don’t know who owns the aviation fuel tanks but apparently EQ provides aviation services at other locations in the United States. I would thoroughly investigate what happened in Apex and keep an eye on what happens next. I am not making any allegations, I am just suggesting that be aware of what is going on.
    I am disappointed that so many politicians have taken money from this company. The damage that imported waste and spills and fires and other accidents have caused is indeterminate. There are major problems with PCB’s in Ann Arbor but no one can tell if the chemicals came from a high pressure toxic waste injection well or the facilities of EQ. The impact on our children and our future cannot be underestimated.
    To have one company control so much of this dangerous business is hazardous enough. When that company starts making mistakes that rush sixteen thousand people out of their houses in the middle of the night then something has to be done.
    I do not believe that people who handle items that can make you sick should be making decisions about healthcare. Do you?
    I do not believe that people who handle items that can poison your water should be making decisions about water quality. Do you?
    I do not believe that people who handle items that can destroy the ability of your children to have normal children themselves should be making decisions about the environment and they certainly should not be sticking their nose into education. Do you?
    I do not believe that people whose activities lower real estate values should be influencing state laws about property. Do you?
    I suggest you familiarize yourself with the people and companies that are involved.
    The folks in Michigan that are taking money from this company are :

    Ok, there are super fund sites and this company is cleaning them up. I am sure they are making money doing it but don't forget they are cleaning up the messes made by other companies over decades.
    Politicians take money from anyone. This is one company cleaning up the mess these other companies have created. Are you familiar with the superfund program. This company is not the poluter, they are the ones cleaning up the mess.
    Of course something has to be done. If you are one of those sixteen thousand people then you better get out of your house, thats what has to be done. This company obviously put the health and welfare of those 16,000 people ahead of of the cost of the evacuation. Don't forget they are going to pay through the nose for this. They sound like a very responsible company. I am sure there will be an investigation into the cause of the fire and if there were any mistakes made I am sure the company would correct them, they are the ones out millions of dollars.
    Yes, of course I do. They are the ones who know what they are doing. Would you rather have ignorant masses making decisions or scientists who know what is going on.
    Yes I do, they know more about the water and the hazards than anyone else. And they are the ones who are going to get sued if anything gets into the water. They are the experts they should be setting the standards.
    Yes I do, they know more about those items they are disposing of than anybody and they are the ones who are going to end up paying the bill when they mess up. They have more at stake than anyone.
    Yea I do. Don't they have the same rights as any other citizen?
    Why so we can support them.

    You seem intent on defending the men and women who have poisoned our neighbors.

    Why do you argue the side of the polluter and not the homeowner?

    Don't you think American citizens should come first in their own homes?

    What this company did was like breaking and entering. Would you have them all live in tents?

    You seem intent on only trying to get your way by any means necessary.

    ;)

    Someone has to be near a super fund clean up site. Unless you want to pay a really big amount of money to build the sites on floating platforms in the ocean (that have to be cleaned up before each storm season).

    There just is not enough real estate.

    Having said that, I do pray that God will keep your people safe. I do not want to see people hurt because of an industrial spill or accident. And if this was intentional - the death penalty would be appropriate (IMHO).

    Floating platforms in the ocean?
    Are you joking or is that really what you have to offer?

    First, as a cross poster, do you really expect respect?

    Second, without additional real estate, the only option for your land locked state is to build platforms . . . the science is there. the technology has been applied.

    But, the storms might get the platform . . . and that could be wicked.

    Did you hear that the family of the girl slaughtered in Colorado has called for all folks to perform 'random acts of kindness'?

    That is what today is about.
    What are you about?

    You have no right to tell me who to interact with.

    I type 80 words per minute.

    Why don't you give us some assistance with Apex, North Carolina instead of trying to hide?

    Do you think I am going to stop interacting with others because you tell me to?

    I answer most posts that are reasonable. Your post is unreasonable and off-topic yet I am answering that.

    You've even made up a name for it - "cross-posting".

    Children have been exposed to mercury in aerosol form and you want to be a censor my right to free speech.

    Are you related to anyone profiting from the activities of EQ? Or maybe one of the larger waste disposal companies? Do you have relatives in the government in Apex or elsewhere?

    Be honest with what you are doing. You're making a fool of yourself.

    You are also trying to stop the movement of God's Word.:wavey:

    Hey, did any of you others get this as a personal PM?

    The sad thing is that what happened is a genuine tragedy...
