Judge Slams Ex-EPA Chief Over Sept. 11
By Larry Neumeister, Associated Press Writer,   February 2, 2006

Feb 24 AP photo of firefighter wearing protective air maskNEW YORK - A federal judge blasted former Environmental Protection Agency chief Christine Todd Whitman on Thursday for reassuring New Yorkers soon after the   Sept. 11 attacks that it was safe to return to their homes and offices while toxic dust was polluting the neighborhood.

U.S. District Judge Deborah A. Batts refused to grant Whitman immunity against a class-action lawsuit brought in 2004 by residents, students and workers in lower Manhattan and Brooklyn who said they were exposed to hazardous materials from the collapse of the World Trade Center.

"No reasonable person would have thought that telling thousands of people that it was safe to return to lower Manhattan, while knowing that such return could pose long-term health risks and other dire consequences, was conduct sanctioned by our laws," the judge said.

She called Whitman's actions "conscience-shocking," saying the EPA chief knew that the fall of the twin towers released tons of hazardous materials into the air. A call to a spokeswoman for Whitman was not immediately returned.

The judge let the lawsuit proceed against the EPA and Whitman, permitting the plaintiffs to try to prove that the agency and its administrator endangered their health. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and reimbursement for cleanup costs and asks the court to order that a medical monitoring fund be set up to track the health of those exposed to trade center dust.

In her ruling, Batts noted that the EPA and Whitman said repeatedly — beginning just two days after the attack — that the air appeared safe to breathe. The EPA's internal watchdog later found that the agency, at the urging of White House officials, gave misleading assurances.

Quoting a ruling in an earlier case, the judge said a public official cannot be held personally liable for putting the public in harm's way unless the conduct was so egregious as "to shock the contemporary conscience." Given her role in protecting the health and environment for Americans, Whitman's reassurances after Sept. 11 were "without question conscience-shocking," Batts said.

Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., said in a statement that New Yorkers are still depending on the federal government to describe any ongoing risk from contaminants. "I continue to believe that the White House owes New Yorkers an explanation," she said.

U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler (news, bio, voting record), a Democrat whose district includes the trade center site, said the many people who worked at the site and developed respiratory diseases deserve answers. "It is my assumption that thousands of people — workers and residents — are being slowly poisoned today because these workplaces and residences were never properly cleaned up," Nadler said in a telephone interview.


A Note from Rochelle Lesser
I have grown increasingly concerned about what we DON'T yet know about the long-term effects of the air quality at the WTC site. So many put their lives on the line and are now suffering lingering illnesses. And, many of our beloved dogs worked the site, in both disaster and therapy roles. The fact that they could have potentially long-term adverse consequences is therefore very troubling. This environmental issue is especially significant given my own history. Let me explain. . . . . .
Many folks ask how I have been able to create and run this huge Land of PureGold site. Well, I've been at it since 1997, but the main reason is that I am on a disability retirement and cannot get around or get outdoors. Although I used to work fulltime as a school psychologist in a public system, teach graduate school, and work extensively in private practice, various health issues prevent me from working in that capacity.

In the Harford County Public School System in Maryland, I worked in a small, non-ventilated, non-windowed office at Edgewood Middle School for eight years. It was consumed by mold and despite continual complaints, nothing was done.
My secretary and fellow psychologists suffered from respiratory problems constantly, and my secretary and I both had unexplained, spontaneous nose bleeds as well. My health deteriorated to the point that I was unable to drive to work without falling asleep at the wheel. I now suffer from a multitude of disorders (mixed connective tissue disease, extreme environmental allergies, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome) and remain at home a good deal of the time. So, you can see that my Goldens, who accompany me when I do private psychotherapy with children or visit assisted living homes, are therapeutic agents for myself as well.
By the way, that office I worked in. Well, after I went out on disability and the problems increased, the parents started complaining due to their children having increased breathing problems and asthma attacks. And, guess what? The school was closed and major abatement needed to be done with those men in the protective suits having to clean up the contamination. And, where was the worst concentration found? Yup, my office. That's where the STACHYBOTRYS MOLD, plus others, was highest. Stachybotrys is that mold that has been featured on numerous news magazine shows, as it usually sends folks running from homes, and then needing to rebuild as their old homes cannot be salvaged.

And, another psychologist from that office is also on an early disability retirement, actually having serious breathing difficulties that prevents her from going anywhere without notifying the paramedics first so that they are aware of where she will be.

Dust to Dust: The Health Effects of 9/11



The Real Rudy

"The REAL heroes of 9-11 sacrificed everything for their country. Rudy Giuliani has abandoned them. Sadly, you already know much of the real story about The Real Rudy. That he chose to put his anti-terrorist command center in the only spot in New York City that had been hit by terrorists before, against the advice of every professional and his own people, because The World Trade Center was more convenient for him.

Furthermore, you're aware that his inaction in updating the radios used by firefighters who perished that day borders on the criminal. He knew the radios didn't work at least 8 years before that day, and when he finally chose to replace them, did so in grand Bushian style with a no-bid contract for radios that didn't work.

Yet, these were not even the worst aspects of Giuliani's 9/11 record. He completed this triumvirate of tragically inept behavior by ignoring the health of the very heroes who toiled day and night at Ground Zero after the attack. Nothing I could tell you here could prepare you for what you're about to watch--once healthy human beings now suffering from a range of illnesses that are a direct result of a toxic brew they inhaled in downtown Manhattan, while Rudy was telling them everything was safe and sound from his perch at Yankee Stadium and they were spending sleepless nights trying to save lives (often not wearing respirators because The Giuliani Administration ignored that federal requirement).

This is the Real Rudy Giuliani. A man who wants to be President and has 9/11 Tourette's Syndrome. Well, every time he heartlessly utters that simple phrase to try and help his flagging political career, let's make sure people shake their heads in disgust, because they know the true story of Rudy Giuliani the 9/11 failure. And one more thing. Please sign the petition, demanding that Rudy meet with 9/11 first responders he has chosen to heretofore ignore. It is the very least this man could do."   — Cliff Schecter, Brave New Films

Nov 01, 2001: Testimony before Environment Committee of the NYC Council

The New York Environmental Law & Justice Project is a non-profit public interest organization which counsels and represents groups and individual concerns with the preservation and improvement of community environmental conditions.
This is their position statement about the situation at the World Trade Center:

We, after much scientific study and sampling into the multitude of carcinogens and toxics released into the environmental due to the WTC disaster, require that the surrounding area be designated an EPA SuperFund Site. We feel that this is necessary in light of the fact that each of these chemicals can be most hazardous by themselves but since there are such large quantities and so many of them combined into a superheated form and dispersed over a large densely metropolitan area as an extremely fine particulate probably has accentuated its toxicity and possibility for a synergistic effect. The lack of data or research into this magnitude of exposure simply does not exist due to the fact that such circumstances have never been encountered. By   Declaring the area to be an EPA SuperFund site, the onus to prove safety will be established and appropriate methods and procedures will be federally enforced. The facts are plain and simple — extremely hazardous materials became airborne when the World Trade Center disintegrated and thus could pose a MOST SERIOUS health threat to people who live and work in the downtown area, not just Ground Zero. These particles and gasses obey the laws of physics and thus spread around the downtown area and were not confined to the immediate vicinity of the WTC area. Public trust in government has diminished as workers and residents have become sick and required medical attention. It is time that the various governmental agencies at the federal, state, and local level do whatever is necessary, including a medical registry, to protect the public health and safety and thereby regain the public's trust.
