Posted Fri May 28 2010: from Fort Worth Star-Telegram:
Texas agency gave inaccurate air pollution test results to Fort Worth
The state agency in charge of testing for air pollution gave inaccurate test results to the city of Fort Worth about toxic emissions from gas wells in January, and when it realized what it had done, it failed to notify the city or the public for weeks, according to an audit made public this week....At issue is a series of tests that the agency conducted in December in Fort Worth after activists raised questions about the amounts of benzene and other toxic compounds released from natural gas wells. Sadlier presented the results to the Fort Worth City Council on Jan. 12, saying, "Based on this study, the air is safe." Sadlier said the samples showed that none of the sites exceeded either the long-term or short-term screening levels for 22 airborne toxic compounds. However, state officials later discovered that the tests had been done with equipment that wasn't sensitive enough to measure some of the compounds at the long-term levels.

This kind of idiocy and malfeasance is ubiquitous. Another example of how our leaders have failed us. What's the answer? The Tea Party? I don't think so. The Tea Party is the Me Party, largely comprised of people worried about their personal pocketbooks. We need an Earth Party, where crimes against nature are prosecuted and those who harmed the planet are held accountable.
