The last month or so has been truly momentous…
It seems like it has been one thing after the other, Biden improperly stored dozens of classified documents, President Trump has been reinstated on Meta platforms, the Twitter files have rocked the nation, and a Chinese spy balloon made its way across the United States.
With all of this happening, it’s easy to forget about the toxic event that recently occurred in East Palestine, Ohio.
On February 3rd, 2023 a train carrying toxic chemicals derailed in Northeast Ohio and a decision was made by authorities to conduct a ‘controlled release’ of the chemicals on February 6th.
Since that time, a reported 1,000,000 pounds of toxic chemicals have been released into the atmosphere and the surrounding environment.
Residents near the blast were initially told to evacuate and those in a wider radius were told to stay indoors and avoid going outside…
Now authorities are claiming that everything is fine—the air is safe to breathe and the water is safe to drink; however, some are having doubts:
Right now they’re reporting the “controlled demolition” of over 1,000,000(?) lbs of toxic chemicals released into the atmosphere was a “perfect success”. They only recommended a one-mile evac radius and said the waterways, well-water, etc, are safe to drink/unaffected. Doubt it.

The EPA and their partners are claiming that the current air quality in East Palestine, OH is “Good”, just two days after releasing well over 100,000 gallons of cancer-causing flammable chemicals into the sky. Do you believe them? pic.twitter.com/Lc48SxU6mo

According to ABC News, the controlled burn of the toxic chemicals went exactly as planned:
A controlled vent and burn of toxic chemicals at the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, went “as planned,” and “no concerning” air and water quality readings have been detected, Pennsylvania Gov. Josh Shapiro said Monday night.

At least one individual pointed out the startling similarities between this event and the plot of a recently released Netflix film “White Noise”…
In the film, an Ohio town is rocked by a toxic cloud resulting from a train derailment—could this be indicative of more nefarious forces at play, or is it merely a coincidence?

CBS News echoed ABC by sharing Governor Shapiro’s statement:
“Air quality samples in the area of the wreckage and in nearby residential neighborhoods have consistently showed readings at points below safety screening levels for contaminants of concern.
Based on this information, state and local health officials determined that it is now safe for community members to return to their residences,” a release from Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro’s office said.
