What’s Happening in Ohio?
Residents deserve to know whether East Palestine is safe or not. Let’s pray for protection for Ohioans.
From Breitbart. Sens. J.D. Vance (R-OH) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) directed a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OPEA) asserting it “does not appear that” the agencies or Norfolk Southern are monitoring for dioxins in East Palestine, Ohio.
Vance and Brown wrote the letter to U.S. EPA Administrator Michael Regan and OPEA Director Anne Vogel on Saturday, following the February 3 train derailment on a Norfolk Southern rail and a subsequent controlled burn of vinyl chlorine that was in multiple cars. …
The Ohio senators expressed gratitude for “the extensive air monitoring U.S. EPA has undertaken related to vinyl chloride and several known by-products that are produced when vinyl chloride burns including phosgene and hydrogen chloride,” before raising concerns about dioxins.

The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) notes that dioxins are environmental pollutants with the potential to be “highly toxic” as “[e]xperiments have shown they affect a number of organs and systems.” …
