Comments on: Reducing Pollution For All American Families https://blog.epa.gov/blog/2013/02/reducing-pollution-for-all-american-families/ The EPA Blog Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:03:35 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: Mark https://blog.epa.gov/blog/2013/02/reducing-pollution-for-all-american-families/#comment-84192 Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:25:15 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/ej/?p=1103#comment-84192 Dear Sir, I reviewed your highly inflammatory article on the EPA website and find it to be very arrogant and one-sided. While you only speak of the so-called dangers of DHMO, there are indeed positive (and healthful) purposes of DHMO and it is increasingly being utilized in a variety of areas.

DHMO is necessary as an intervention in a variety of settings. For an example, in the home garden we’ve found it helpful in order to ensure the health and vitality of the cell walls of the garden vegetation. Also, without the proper application of DMHO (used as a fine mist) an entire crop of genus Ipomea (Convolvulaceae) could be ravaged by Popillia japonica. The DMHO is obviously necessary as a dispersant for these harmful insects.

Simple precautions can be undertaken to ensure safe handling of DHMO and because of it, there are increasingly more uses found every day.

Before you say it, Yes… I know that DHMO under high pressures can do more damage than the Popillia japonica themselves.

Therefore I implore you to look at both sides of the issue and not just rally against DHMO because of it’s reputation and bad press, links to death etc.

We are on the bottom line with chemicals in the environment.
Everyone in this country is endocrine disrupted from the chemicals in the environment.

GET these chemicals tested for ED.
Thank You,

What is EPA doing about DHMO? Current allegations suggest that the United States Environmental Protection Agency may be conspiring to cover up the whole DHMO issue.

Each year, Dihydrogen Monoxide is a known causative component in many thousands of deaths. DHMO is a major component of acid rain and gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns. Still, is is used as as an industrial solvent, in nuclear power plants, in the production of Styrofoam and in the development of genetically engineering crops and animals. The government even allows it in baby food!

It has been encouraging and rewarding to be involved with NEJAC, National and Regional EJ Conferences, and training sessions under your leadership. You have been true to your word of expanding and strengthening the “community voice” on environmentalism and environmental justice. You have respected our face-to-face input and idea sharing to move issues on Title VI. My wife Brenda and I recently had the privilege to participate in training sessions on some of your community engagement initiatives with dozens of career EPA staff and supervisors. We look forward to hear about your leadership opening new doors, recruiting diverse citizens, and leveraging necessary resources. With much respect, Omega Wilson, President/Project Manager, West End Revitalization Association (WERA), Mebane, NC

Adminstrator Lisa Jackson turned the tables, she made the poor, survivors fo TOXIC HAZARDOUS WASTE resident citizens, feel like we MATTERED and that we were almost on the path towards becoming like HUMAN BEINGS again.
On behalf of all those who have gone before me / us: who were there at the very beginning of the Environmental Justice movement, I can rightly say- with the greatest levels of CONFIDENCE and ACCURACY, we have and are a more BLESSED and most FORTUNATE people for the time that Ms. JACKSON did serve, as OUR Eyes, Ears, Voice and MINDS- in the capacity of the Adminstrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency;
May God continue to forever BLESS you to your new journey to be the Champion and the WARRIOR for the poor and resident citizens who continue to endure the brunt of TOXIC HAZARDOUS WASTE, thank you for showing the next E.P.A. leadership teams WHAT the face and spirit of HUMANITY really looks and feels LIKE !!!

( I sure wish President Obama would send you over to, the VETERANS ADMINSTRATION to get them into gear of really serving, instead of more fancy multi-colored brochures- ).
