Oil byproducts from a damaged storage facility contaminated the Houston Ship Channel and created a cloud of cancer-causing benzene over the waterway, the latest mutation of one of the worst Gulf Coast chemical disasters in more than a decade.

The U.S. Coast Guard is forbidding vessel traffic on a stretch of the key industrial shipping route after a wall collapse and fire at Intercontinental Terminals Co.’s already-damaged chemical storage complex on Friday. A mix of toxic gasoline ingredients, firefighting foam and dirty water flowed from the site into the channel, and a benzene plume above the water poses a threat to ship crews, said Coast Guard Capt. Kevin Oditt.

This disaster has been flying under the radar it seems. This is the first I have heard of it. It looks really bad. Does anyone on ATS have some inside info?

just let it burn. chemicals have no effect on the environment.

let it burn and rebuild.

any adverse effects which may result are purely coincidental and orchestrated by the Chinese.

Thanks for the link. I missed that, I guess because I searched Houston fire.

Houston is turning into a toxic mess between this and the floods from the hurricane.

I don't understand what you are getting at, I believe Houston has been run by democrats for at least the last few decades.

He is saying that, since Trump brought back some jobs and deregulated the coal industry that means conservatives believe pollution is not harmful at all.

The real truth is, we know it is harmful but recognize that it isnt helpful to hold ourselves to such stringent standards when no body else abides by them, especially when China is set to overtake us economically if we continue at this rate, so it made sense to relax the regulations a little bit.


On Topic- I cant help but wonder if this was not an accident. The Deep State is in a state of P.A.N.I.C. (Patriots Are Now In Control)

I'll bet going around your house or apartment would provide a huge dose of irony as we uncovered all the various items you depend on produced using the products of facilities like this one.
