  1. Regardless of the he said she said bullshit… NO FATALITIES is something amazing. I’m not a professional, but I AN A WIFE of one. And the mere fact that our husbands and fathers are home is amazing. Period. Happy thanksgiving y’all.

  3. It is unbelievable to me that folks still live in such close proximity to these "accidents waiting to happen". My family abandoned our home in Pasadena in the late sixties after numerous incidents that drove us indoors. Coupled with the utter lack of regulations to prevent these catastrophes is a deadly combination. Might've gotten lucky this time but with these aging refineries it is only a matter of time. Only in TEXAS.

  4. MAINTENANT COMMENT A CAUSE DE QUOI POURQUOI QUI QUE QUOI DONT OU ET LES REPERCUSSIONS DES FUMEES DU SMOG SUR LES PERSONNES DE TOUTE LA CONTREE PROCHE A MOYENNE OU LONGUE PORTEE DU SINISTRE DE CET EXPLOSION TERRIBLE ENCORE UNE FOIS BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO AUX SAPEURS POMPIERS POLICIERS ET AUTRES SERVICES QUI SONT OU ETAIENT SUR PLACE POUR MAITRISER CE TERRIFIANT LIEUX OU S EST PRODUITE CETTE EXPLOSION INCROYABLE INCREDIBILE EFFROYABLE QUI HEUREUSEMENT N A FAIT QUE TROIS BLESSES SUR PLACE MAIS ENGENDRE L EVACUATIONS DE CERTAINES PERSONNES PROCHES DE CE FOYER TOXIQUE

  5. so now we have chemical explosion Awards instead of explaining why and how this happened!!

    is this the best we can do ,are these people chemically and genetically damaged!!
    WTF

  6. Is a better golf club made with polymers worth this or will the one Ben Hogan used do? The fossil fuel industry is killing us all and they don't care. It is time to shutter the fossil fuel/petrochemical and Nuclear industries. It is time we outlaw extraction, production and sale of fossil fuels and products using/running on fossil fuel. Shut them down. This is not black smoke. This is the air we breathe and the idea that "Black Smoke " poses no problems to humans is an outright lie. Will TCP reimburse the first responders and all from public agencies for their assets and personnel?

  7. We hasten the completion of the 6th extinction every day we postpone shuttering the fossil fuel industry. Exxon Valdez, a human caused industrial disaster, fouled the ocean at Prince William Sound, Alaska.

    A climate change disaster in 2011 melts down 3 nuclear reactors at The Fukushima Plant in Japan, contaminating the Pacific Ocean, the land and air to this day, and as far into the future as we can see.

    No fossil fuel or nuclear plant can withstand 125 to 250 mph winds.

    BP's Deepwater Horizon Industrial disaster fouled the ocean, land, and inland waterways of the Gulf of Mexico.

    Now this.

    We cannot breathe when surrounded by fire with no way out. see Paradise, California.

    "The sun gives us more energy than we can ever use. Everyday." Nikola Tesla.

    We have a present and future job for every American converting our energy systems to clean energy to power our cars, homes and factories. We do this or perish..sooner than later. We do this whether we like it or not. What's not to like?

  8. Drop drone bombs on American oil and gas facilities anywhere in the USA, they are causing global warming of the earth

  9. You can be sure there will be hundreds of law suits against the company, the lawers will have a field day with this gas company

  10. 1,3-Butadiene is often referred to simply as butadiene. However, the general term butadiene includes both the common industrial chemical 1,3-butadiene and 1,2-butadiene, a contaminant in some industrial processes. Physical characteristics of 1,3-butadiene are shown below.

    Physical Characteristics of 1,3-Butadiene
    Physical Description Colorless gas that has a mild gasoline-like odor.
    Molecular Weight 54.1
    Boiling/Melting Point 24ºF / -164ºF
    Vapor Pressure @69.8ºF: 1,840 mm Hg
    Specific Gravity @68ºF: 0.62
    Solubility Soluble in alcohol, ether, acetone, and benzene, not soluble in water.
    Flammable Extreme fire hazard.
    The health effects caused by exposure to 1,3-butadiene can be split into two categories: acute and chronic. Acute exposures can further be split into low and high doses. Acute low exposures may cause irritation to the eyes, throat, nose, and lungs. Frostbite may also occur with skin exposure. Acute high exposures may cause damage to the central nervous system or cause symptoms such as distorted blurred vision, vertigo, general tiredness, decreased blood pressure, headache, nausea, decreased pulse rate, and fainting. Chronic effects caused by exposure to 1,3-butadiene are controversial. Several human epidemiological studies have shown an increase in cardiovascular diseases and cancer. However, due to the small numbers of cancers and confounding factors such as smoking, and simultaneous exposure to benzene and styrene, a true causal relationship cannot be established. Experiments involving chronic exposures to mice and rats have shown a strong causal relationship between 1,3-butadiene exposure and cancer. Animal studies have also shown reproductive and developmental problems. Based on human and animal studies, the EPA has classified 1,3-butadiene as a known human carcinogen. The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) has given 1,3-butadiene a rating of A2, suspected human carcinogen.
