  •  Typical public relations BS (3+ / 0-)

    Worked with Haz-Mat teams and emergency responders in Ohio for almost 20 years under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act. (remember Union Carbide plants in Bhopal, India in 1984 and Institute, West Virginia in 1986?)  No business is going to publicly admit they pose such a risk. If the local emergency planning officials fell for the BS and didn't have a plan in place, they will now have to live with the consequences. All such plants were required to work with local communities to plan for events such as this and make the public aware of what could happen.
