With Neighbors Unaware, Toxic Spill at a BP Plant

With Neighbors Unaware, Toxic Spill at a BP Plant 30 Aug 2010 (Texas City, TX) While the world was focused on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a BP refinery here released huge amounts of toxic chemicals into the air that went unnoticed by residents until many saw their children come down with respiratory problems. For 40 days after a piece of equipment critical to the refinery’s operation broke down, a total of 538,000 pounds of toxic chemicals, including the carcinogen benzene, poured out of the refinery. Rather than taking the costly step of shutting down the refinery to make repairs, the engineers at the plant diverted gases to a smokestack and tried to burn them off, but hundreds of thousands of pounds still escaped into the air, according to state environmental officials.

U.S. wasted billions in rebuilding Iraq

U.S. wasted billions in rebuilding Iraq --Hundreds of infrastructure projects are incomplete or abandoned 29 Aug 2010 As the U.S. draws down in Iraq, it is leaving behind hundreds of abandoned or incomplete projects. More than $5 billion in American taxpayer funds has been wasted -- more than 10 percent of the some $50 billion the U.S. has spent on reconstruction in Iraq, according to audits from a U.S. watchdog agency. That amount is likely an underestimate, based on an analysis of more than 300 reports by auditors with the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction. And it does not take into account security costs, which have run almost 17 percent for some projects. [Notice the GOP blocks spending for any *domestic* infrastructure projects, but has no problem with over-funding the pseudo-rebuild in Iraq and Afghanistan? That's because only corporaterrorists and mercenaries benefit from such projects - not the people in those nations. See also: The Obusha AfPak Money Pit By Lori Price.]
