Chemical experts say recent refinery explosions could have been far more devastating if deadly hydrogen fluoride was released. Some are calling for a ban on the chemical.

2013 report released by the United Steelworkers, the union that represents refinery workers, warned that facilities using HF don't have adequate safety measures in place and are unprepared for a release. It said this puts 12,000 workers and 13 million residents at risk of exposure, including in major metropolitan areas like Houston, Memphis and Salt Lake City.

"Dire" should be the missing rating to the right, which I still can't get to respond, and rarely read actually.


But as we read history and wonder about past cultural demise, especially if it's mysterious, I often wonder what the future will say about America the Beautiful and our self-destructive tendencies.


Certainly clinging to outmoded and questionable energy sources is a gamble, and seemingly the work of a few potentates of the fossil fuel industry, but there's always a villain in every drama, as every large scale social movement must have operatives, and they must have personal and selfish short term motives, or the larger scheme wouldn't happen, as we seem to sleepwalk to extinction.


Why is the redemptive voice always the last one we listen to? Beyond that, whose agenda are we fulfilling? We hang our better selves out to dry, why?
