Puerto Rico’s Slow-Going Recovery Means New Hardship For Dialysis Patients 22.4.2018 Truthout - All Articles
If you believe in the importance of a free and independent press, take a moment to support Truthout's news and analysis by making a donation now! VIEQUES, Puerto Rico -- As the cry of a rooster heralded the dawn, Joe Garcia, 41, pulled a vial of insulin from the fridge. He filled a syringe and wrapped it in aluminum foil in preparation for the long day ahead. "I tell him that from here to there, that'll spoil," said his mother, Martina Collazo de Jesus, 63, watching the preparations under the fluorescent bulb lighting the family kitchen. It is a gamble Garcia, who has both diabetes and kidney failure, has taken since Hurricane Maria slammed this Puerto Rican island just east of the main island. More than six months after the storm, Garcia and 13 other Vieques residents must still board a plane three days a week for kidney dialysis on Puerto Rico's main island. Hurricane Maria totaled Vieques' hospital, which housed the island's only dialysis clinic. That set off an ongoing crisis for patients with kidney ...

"Excess" Emissions From Industrial Shutdowns and Startups Are Increasing Air Pollution 3.3.2018 Truthout - All Articles
When Hurricane Harvey struck the Texas coast in August 2017, many industrial facilities had to shut down their operations before the storm arrived and restart once rainfall and flooding had subsided. These shutdowns and startups, as well as accidents caused by the hurricane, led to a significant release of air pollutants. Over a period of about two weeks, data we compiled from the Texas'  Air Emission Event Report Database  indicates these sites released 2,000 tons of sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, volatile organic compounds and other pollutants. These types of emissions that result from startups, shutdowns or malfunctions are often referred to as "excess" or "upset" emissions and are particularly pronounced during times of natural disasters, as was the case with Hurricane Harvey. However, as we document in a  newly published study  in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, they also occur regularly during the routine operation of many industrial facilities, sometimes in large ...
