Cali Fire May Have Sent "Incredibly Dangerous" Radioactive Particles Into The Air (Headed East)
Updated: Nov 15, 2018
And you thought Barbara Streisand was the most toxic thing in southern California. Apparently not.
The 95,000 acre Woolsey fire which has coated Southern California with an apocalyptic orange glow may have released a toxic stew of radioactive particles and toxic chemicals into the air, after scorching the land on closed-down government weapons testing facility in Simi Hills known to be heavily contaminated from decades of experiments.
There are places like this dotted all over the country by the way. Toxic chemicals from years gone by, weapons long forgotten, and experiments even more forgotten are probably in every state in the union. When I was a kid we used to ride mountain bikes over munition dumps until the city chased us off. Right next tho the World War 1 era mounds? Soybean farms.
California officials with the state's Department of Toxic Substances Control said that as of Friday, November 9, an area of the SSFL site which was scorched by the Woolsey fire posed no danger, stating "Our scientists and toxicologists have reviewed information about the fire’s location and do not believe the fire has caused any releases of hazardous materials that would pose a risk to people exposed to the smoke."
A group of concerned physicians begs to differ.
