Residents of a small town in Ohio fear for their health and safety after huge clouds of toxic chemicals were released in a controlled explosion following a train derailment earlier this month.
About 50 cars, including 10 carrying hazardous materials, derailed in a fiery crash in East Palestine at about 9pm on Friday, February 3.
Homes within a one-mile area were soon evacuated as vinyl chloride was slowly released from five of those cars. Authorities then ignited the gases for a ‘controlled release’ of the highly flammable, toxic chemicals in a controlled environment, creating a dark plume of smoke seen miles away.

I point to my personal “EXHIBIT #1” of Christie Todd Wittman, the head of the EPA, assuring us that the air around the 911 site was safe to breathe.
I wouldn’t believe any Gooferment assurances about safety,
Where are the Ohio Senators and Representatives? The Ohio governor, all their politicians, and bureaucrats?
Any wagers that they are not down there breathing that “air”?
