It’s known as hedging one’s bets. Their current advice may say it isn’t a threat but no one would put their name to the advisory note that categorically states that on the not unreasonable chance someone or many someones, die.
I think it's just that it started focussing on political drudgery more than the actual events on the ground that made me lose interest. Keep in mind, I had already read about the disaster in books so when it stopped looking to real events in favor of it's "fanfiction" characters, I kind of checked out.Really? Everyone I've heard talked about it have adored the entire show.
Although granted I don't think I know anyone in real life who saw the show, just people on The Twitter and whatnot raving about it. I guess I'll see soon enough!
this is entirely speculative, but perhaps what they meant is that there is a short-term danger that will clear up on its own (minus a large number of fish and birds and so forth), unlike for example an oil spill that needs an exhaustive clean-up without which an aquifer would be well and truly ruined. it is possible (maybe!) that the poisoning of Ohio will simply dilute enough not to be a problem. Or at least not a very noticeable problem. Especially if it isn't monitored too closely.
Well remember it wasn't just gasses in the train, there was quite a few things that spilled.this is entirely speculative, but perhaps what they meant is that there is a short-term danger that will clear up on its own (minus a large number of fish and birds and so forth), unlike for example an oil spill that needs an exhaustive clean-up without which an aquifer would be well and truly ruined. it is possible (maybe!) that the poisoning of Ohio will simply dilute enough not to be a problem.

It is more plausible for gaseous pollutants, anyway.
Indeed.Well remember it wasn't just gasses in the train, there was quite a few things that spilled.
To be fair, Reddit is working hard to make up for it by obsessing over every single trail derailment in the US since."That IS troubling. What news are you consuming, my dude?
Oh, right. Reddit."
This whole "MEDIA COVERUP" thing is utterly bizarre, and I'm damn convinced it's astroturfed to hell (fucked if I know who or why, though). There weren't even any fatalities in Ohio, but the internet is being plastered in posts comparing it to Chernobyl and trying to stir up as much panic as possible. Comments on Reddit were hysterically telling people to leave everything behind and run, it's absolutely wild."This is all news to you, what I just said, because NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT.
I mean, except for the local newspapers.
And some national ones.
I mean, yes, the ten largest newspapers in the United States have been covering it for the past two weeks. The New York Times alone has done four articles.
It was on Good Morning America.
So I do in fact agree with this Redditor, who says “The fact that I haven’t seen a news article/broadcast without having to search for it regarding this incident is extremely troubling.”
That IS troubling. What news are you consuming, my dude?
Oh, right. Reddit."
Why No One is Talking about the Ohio Train Derailment (and Other Conspiracies)Transcript: On the night of February 3rd, a Norfolk Southern train carrying dangerous chemicals like vinyl chloride derailed about 50 miles outside of Pittsburgh, in a little town called East Pales…skepchick.org
Dixiecrat arguing in favor of states' rights. How surprising.https://www.supremecourt.gov/Docket...20220902130248064_21-1168bsacUnitedStates.pdf
Biden administration is actively interfering in a supreme court case involving Norfolk Southern in order to quash a worker's claim that they got cancer from unsafe working conditions. If the SC rules in favor of the railroad, it would end up heavily restricting who could sue them over the spill in Ohio. Specifically it would limit claims to either where an accident happened, so people in, say, neighboring Pennsylvania who get toxic chemicals from this spill won't be able to litigate against Norfolk Southern because the spill happened in Ohio.
I'm headed to the store in an hour or so to pick up groceries, and a few 5-gallon water jugs and some more filters are on my shopping list. Louisville's holding stupid on the stance it's not shutting off its Ohio water intake, and my side of the river's run by a bunch of morons, so I figure enough to get me by for a week until we find out what the state/federal government's lying about next would be a good idea.Everyone in Ohio is buying lots of bottle water. At Costco 1/2 of the people were buying it in their shopping carts. It's nuts.
No he isn't, he's trying to make headlines for himself.
Pennsylvania Gov. Josh Shapiro says his office made a criminal referral in East Palestine train derailmentOhio Gov. DeWine also signaled during the press conference that his state is also preparing to take legal action.www.cnbc.com
Ohio's Ohio's Governor may have his head up his ass, but it is good my state Gov. Josh Shapiro is trying to do something about it.
Sounds a lot like capitalism.He is a cynical turd willing to make the world worse to give himself more power.
