I read this, and the guy seems to have a more balanced view of the level of pollution/contamination that the derailment may have caused. I’d not be surprised if residents had some irritation to their breathing system – even fairly mild acids can cause a nasty burning pain in skin tissue. But, that’s not saying that there will be permanent damage, or cancers. A short blast of a chemical is less likely to cause long term harm than the day-to-day absorption of chemicals over a long period of time.
No credit to Buttigieg, the clown who is F*****g up the DOT, both through his incompetence, and his laziness. News flash, Petey – when you’re in charge, and there is a major crisis, no one gives a rip whether you’re ‘bonding’ with your kid, or missing a REALLY important vacay. You need to drop everything, and deal with the emergency.
He’s clearly in over his head. As a mayor in South Bend, Petey’s biggest accomplishment was installation of decorative paving stones. I’m not kidding, that was it.
