When President George W. Bush came to Ground Zero two days after the 9/11
attack, he urged everyone to shop. Ironically, the expression – Shop Till
You Drop – would have been more appropriate. In fact, the raw truth about
the air is that is was, as scientist Marjorie Clarke says, “equivalent to
dozens of asbestos factories, incinerators and crematoria.”
The White House Council on Environmental Quality changed EPA's press
releases turning warnings of asbestos into reassurances. The EPA also said
"The air is safe to breathe" at the World Trade Center. This has
seriously injured the health of Manhattan workers and residents. It is even
killing some of the heroes who worked at Ground Zero.
Christine Whitman, EPA administrator, and Mayor Giuliani lied to New Yorkers
and visitors from around the world that there were "no significant
problems". Shockingly, the New York City Dept of Health told residents
to clean their apartments with a wet mop or wet rag.
What’s with the “WTC cough” " Why all the shortness of breath and
nosebleeds? In Confronting the Evidence, Scientists Dr. Cate Jenkins, Dr.
Marjorie Clarke, Paul Bartlett, and others, warned about inhaling toxic dust
and fumes, but were ignored by the agencies in charge.
GROUND ZERO: THE AIR APPARENT
* 400,000 pounds of lead from 50,000 computers at WTC
* 200,000 of cancer-causing asbestos
* Over 10,000 fluorescents, each of which contained enough mercury to
contaminate a quarter of a city block
* Thousands of smoke detectors contained radioactive americium 241. The
alkalinity of the air is equal to a bottle of Drano
* Highest levels of vanadium ever recorded
* Some rescue workers not allowed to wear respirators on the ground that
they might frighten the public
*.New York City Department of Health often refused to pay for cleanup –
scammed false info on how to clean up offices and apartments
* Children in nearby schools have developed serious respiratory problems
* Half of those who cleaned ground zero have serious health problems.
* Confronting the Evidence reveals that the man responsible for cover-up was
previously an industry lawyer who represented major asbestos and toxic
* 100's of firefighters can no longer work
* Harbinger of what’s to come - 14 rescue dogs have died
And, despite the studies which continue to point to the hazards of exposure
to Ground Zero contaminants, neither the federal government nor New York
City has yet cleaned up the city's firehouses. One firefighter who did not
join the department until after the World Trade Center fires had gone out
has now been found to have new onset asthma attributable to exposure at his
firehouse near Ground Zero.
After much scientific study and sampling into the multitude of carcinogens
and toxics released into the environmental due to the WTC disaster, the
facts require that the surrounding area be designated an
EPA SuperFund Site. Plain and simply — extremely hazardous materials
became airborne when the World Trade Center disintegrated and thus posed a
most serious health threat to people who live and work in the downtown area,
not just ground Zero.
Public trust in government has diminished as workers and residents have
become sick and required medical attention. It is time that the various
governmental agencies at the federal, state, and local level do whatever is
necessary, including a medical registry, to protect the public health and
safety and thereby regain the public's trust.
Comprehensive, representative testing has yet to be performed in the area
affected by the dust and fires of the disaster. Following a year of
discussions with the World Trade Center Expert Technical Review Panel, the
EPA is expected to release a new sampling plan within a few weeks. A
preliminary plan submitted to a panel of outside technical experts was found
wanting in several areas including quality control, number of contaminants
to be studied and reliance on a 'signature' to determine the presence of
World Trade Center dust.
