Los Angeles School Built on Toxic Site Named After Al Gore

In an honor that could easily be interpreted as a slap in the face, a Los Angeles school district has named a new academy after Al Gore -- the only problem is the school was built on toxic soil.

The Los Angeles Times reports that crews worked up to the Labor Day weekend to try to clean up the Carson-Gore Academy of Environmental Sciences in the run-up to its Sept. 13 opening.

The $75.5 million facility was named after Gore, who has made bringing awareness to climate change a personal cause since leaving office, and environmental author Rachel Carson. The former vice president was never informed the school would bear his name.

Wonder why.

According to the Times, the soil underneath the building used to hold more than a dozen storage tanks. An environmental coalition complained that the school was an "affront" to its namesakes.

Crews worked to mitigate the damage from the tanks by replacing the toxic soil with clean soil -- two 3,800-square-foot plots of it. But the school is also near underground tanks from a nearby gas station, near an oil well, above an oil field and on top of contaminated groundwater.

School officials, however, say those potential hazards pose no risks and that they will continue to monitor for any changes. Top school safety officer John Sterritt told the Times "there's no doubt in my mind that the site is safe" after a $4 million cleanup.

A Play Ground one block from me was built on two abandoned Gas Stations.

They to, have Storage Tanks that required cleanup.

The Cleanup was done and the Play Ground was built … no one is endangered.

Next ... :cheers:

But the Deep Water drill rigs mess will be around forever... giving cause to stop all oil drilling...

The lack of self awareness by some on the left... is astounding.

:agree:

When Air Craft started falling out of the sky … the FAA grounded that type of Air Craft until they found out the reason WHY!

Kind of smart … don’t you think? :crazy:

But did they ground all aircraft capable of flying at determined altitude ? That's what Obama did to all deep water drilling... with his moratorium.

Still sound smart to you ?

Don’t be stupid … or at least give it a try … If Altitude was the problem they would ground Air Craft at that level.

The obvious has been determined, by both BP and the Government doesn’t have a PLAN for a leak a mile down to be fixed.


How do we know this … ? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deepwater_Horizon_oil_spill

The question should be, "why are we drilling one mile deep and more, off-shore to begin with?"

Can you guess who catalyzed the deep water drilling in the first place?
