Well, it is used in Semi-Conductor production and there was a lot of that in Phoenix, at least when I lived there. ...
good point indeed...
anyone familiar with Phoenix is aware that along a 10 mile stretch of the Salt River , river bed...there are were umteen Motorola, Honeywell, &
formerly Allied Signal plants in that 'corridor' which also has the SkyHarbor Airport situated therein.
These industrial plants so polluted the soil & ground water table that even the gov't reclaimation of the toxic land is cost prohibitive...
But the employees took home paychecks despite the hazardous sunstances they are exposed to, There is another electronic component manufacturer over on
the east coast located in Myrtle Beach SC ...I'm waiting for the shoe to drop on this polluter too.
i'd say that whatever electronic component plants are still operating there in Phoenix, they are the one's belching out the toxic substance this
thread is concerned with.
who knows, perhaps the Intel plant there in 'the valley of the Sun' is
the culprit for all we know. The next generation 'chips' might be getting 'Bred' into existance and this rare element is involved somehow.
bottom line, i don't consider that any rogue team is mind blanking the population there in Phoenix...it's more likely the sources are contaminated
soils being disturbed or present day contamination by high-tech manufacturing releasing the product into the atmosphere.
hey, even the 'swamp coolers' which nearly every old house and industrial plant has operating in the region could be the source, because in that
desert environment the H20 evaporation is a very good delivery vehicle, Way-y-y better than contrails
thanks for listening....
