Toxic Hysteria Revisited

Much to the chagrin of Hugh Kaufman, senior policy analyst at the EPA, New Orleans (still) is not a candidate for superfund status. Kaufman is the hysteric who, in the aftermath of Katrina, declared

"There is not enough money in the Gross National Product of the United States to dispose of the amount of hazardous material in the area [around New Orleans]."

Today Captain Ed points to a new article in the Washington Post that confirms an earlier report that there was nothing unusual about the composition of the floodwaters.

I'm sure the water quality was helped by the fact that there weren't 10,000 corpses floating around.

As I pointed out previously, Kaufman is the same gasbag who accused the EPA of lying about the air quality at the Ground Zero cleanup.

Wasn't he the guy in Ghostbusters who shut down the "ghost" containment system and all hell broke loose? :-)
