This post is what I suppose should be called part two of the water contamination crisis in Alabama, you can find the first piece I wrote here. First note: it was the water board that made this choice; a choice science and scientists back up as I’ll show below.
As you’ll see below, “oddly” there seems to be some conflict in what the scientists and state and county government believe.While at the cited press conference government officials numerous times stated they would not panic over this situation and so forth; only to find out by more scientists that they were in the wrong. Anyhow, that insane view of don’t worry the water is probably safe; drink it while you wait for us to figure it out! doesn’t work for me.
I automatically am going to believe the ones who have spent decades studying the topic and the water board and not drink the water if for no other reason, as a precaution. Let us not forget, the scientists I speak of have made it their job to study this kind of issue, have history as well as years of data on their side. They support the water boards call to not drink the contaminated water.
Should be plain and simple… but it’s not.
Government officials in the area are frustrated and clearly
