Animals Dying, People Sick in Wake of Chem Burn in Ohio – Gov’t ‘Nuked’ a Town to Open Railroad

A 20-car train carrying hazardous chemicals derailed Feb. 3 and spilled the dangerous chemicals into both the air and possibly the water supply in Ohio. One expert described the burn of the chemicals the government hastily and stupidly initiated to get the railway open as “nuk[ing] a town with chemicals.” Much later than he should have, the governor warned residents to drink only bottled water, thousands of animals are dying, and humans are developing worrying symptoms. The town of East Palestine and the farmland around it may well have to be abandoned. And yet—where are the environmentalists?

Where is the Biden administration, that never stops lecturing about preserving the environment and saving wildlife? Why is woke pontificator and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg missing in actionWhy is the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) claiming all is safe when residents find themselves coughing, itching, and their heads aching as animals die? Why is there such silence from the climate crazies? Do they not care, being hypocrites? Are they happy for anything that puts a bad name on chemicals and hurts humans? What exactly is going on, and will the residents suffer long term damage?

A resident and local kennel owner, Katlyn Schwarzwaelder, whose property abuts on the derailment, told Glenn Beck Feb. 15 that the area was like a “war zone.” She said only an independent tester came to test for chemicals and tried to get her to sign a contract essentially disclaiming any future ability to hold anyone liable for the derailment and controlled burn, and though she didn’t sign it hundreds of residents did out of desperation. Schwarzwaelder said the EPA refused to test themselves, but she didn’t know why. She insisted that she not only knows multiple people whose animals died, and her dogs needed emergency care after having to wait a couple days to be evacuated, but humans can’t safely live there. 

Schwarzwaelder said it was so unbearable being on her property for half an hour that, with the prospect of the air and water supply worsening, she plans never to go back. She was very worried about poorer residents who were unable to evacuate because of how physically uncomfortable it was just to be in the area, since it’s supposed to get worse, and also said she doesn’t know what to do, because her 27 or do acres and kennel facilities have become practically worthless and she fears it’s impossible for her to buy another property for her dogs and horse to live on. Meanwhile the EPA does nothing but issue inaccurate reassurances.
