Tuesday, 25. June 2019, Bay Area Community Center in Clear Lake Park, Pollution Here and Your Health Forum

from 25. June 2019 - 18:30 till 20:00

Bay Area Community Center in Clear Lake Park

0 people attending
Event description
Recent petrochemical pollution incidents caused by Hurricane Harvey, ITC/Deer Park fire and the Bayport Channel ship/barge crash spread air and water toxic emissions of dangerous benzene, xylene, butadiene, vinyl chloride and other toxic releases. Red lights are flashing for Houston residents. Add in the KMCO fire, Arkema explosion and others too numerous to list, and it's clear that the current industrial community may be stretched too far to consistently protect residents. Worse yet, the southeast Texas petrochemical industry is in a massive new development phase fueled by Permian Basin oil and LNG, further expanding the likelihood of more dangerous incidents.  
Planned speakers include:
Sierra Club Houston - Melanie Oldham, Air Quality Chair
Galveston Bay Foundation - Bob Stokes, President
Air Alliance Houston - Lucy Randell, Board Member
Environmental Defense Fund - TBD
District 129 State Representative Dennis Paul - invited
 It’s time the public, especially families with young and old members to learn more about egregious toxic releases and impacts to our health. We need to help stop the “accidents” by engaging the TCEQ and public officials in the state legislature to enforce laws and regulations. Remember the image of ITC’s massive black chemical plume and the dangerous stench that took our breath away in the Bay Area on May 10, and consider what this means to your family's health.
 Attend the Pollution Here and Your Health Forum to learn more, ask questions and take action.
