Formosa Explosion Doesn’t Surprise Diane Wilson

Last week a new explosion at Formosa Plastics in Texas sent 11 workers to the hospital. Diane Wilson was quoted in the Houston Chronicle in a headline reading “Activist ‘Not Surprised’.” This latest offense was not news to Diane, who has been clamoring about the irresponsible safety measures at Formosa and other chemical giants in Texas for years. But it did make me curious about local explosions or chemical spills in Vermont. The ARIP database is a great resource offered by the Right to Know Network [1], where you can look up significant chemical spills by region, corporation, or chemical, if you’re feeling up to it. Even after reading Diane’s book, my jaw dropped a little as I typed in “Union Carbide” and watched the scroll bar go from small to smaller, indexing their long list of hazardous spills.
