Mayor Jackson... "concerned about the human impacts of pollution in northeast Ohio"

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Thu, 08/05/2010 - 00:36.


At the time these photos were taken, 08/04/10 between 8-9 pm, Cleveland air pollution monitoring
reported PM 2.5 of 13 - "GOOD" Air Quality - when it was clearly Unsafe

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson held a press conference today on the hills overlooking the beautiful Cuyahoga River Valley, where he proclaimed "I am not a mutant - no Clevelanders are Mutants - pollution don't mutant people... mutants mutant people... and I'll Prove it".

All two honest journalists remaining in Ohio attended the press conference, and puked. They are being treated at MetroHealth for pollution poisoning, and are reported to be in critical condition.

That or less was the Mayor's response to news that the Sierra Club and other environmentalists are "concerned about the human impacts of pollution in northeast Ohio"... "think that it's inadequate to expect networked monitors in a region as large as northeast Ohio to be able to compensate for each other's outages"... think "it's a matter of opinion whether high particulate levels are unhealthy only if they persist for a 24-hour period"... and "say it's downright insensitive to claim otherwise, particularly for those who live in a relatively less polluted area".

Note how you can barely see MetroHealth across the polluted valley

Mayor Jackson then showed his 110% confidence in his entire air quality staff, and the Cleveland Department of Health... and the high quality of air in Cleveland... by announcing he is moving City Hall into the former LTV headquarters, directly adjacent to the primary steel mill at Arcelor/Mittal - saying "I get chills every time they blast that furnace - now I can see, smell and hear them blasting away at our environment all day long.... makes me think of the good old days when BP was flowing all that beautiful oil into the Gulf.

"You know, BP is from Cleveland"... the Mayor gushed... "Drill Baby Drill... tee hee... I always wanted to say that".

"That pollution makes my people proud and strong" - Jackson said - "Now, the employees of the great City of Cleveland will be even greater - we shall work next to the steel mill and gain wisdom and power from the fumes".

The city of Cleveland's health insurers immediately canceled all employee health coverage.


As this air monitoring equipment never works, the city is inviting scrappers to clear this site - Call Matt Carroll for access
 

Sources at City Hall report all 1,854 of Jackson's family members working for the city of Cleveland resigned, issuing a family statement reading "look what he's done to our neighborhood of Central... we are right by the mill and it is hell here... we need to escape for work, at least".

Mayor Jackson went on to read a statement prepared by Cleveland Health Director Matt Carroll:

A one hour average of 40µg/m3 does not mean it is unhealthy, only when the average persists for 24 hours.  For the most part the air quality in Northeast Ohio is considered the same with usually only minor differences in the results from the various monitors. If one or two monitors are not operating correctly within the network, they still have good representation from the other instruments to determine the AQI.

To which Carroll commented to the press... "Did I really write that?" "Fuck... I was polluted".

Director Matt Carroll took back his words, stating he has brain damage from the pollution here and he is resigning to move to Montana and recuperate...

Regarding the mayor's plans to move the Cleveland Health Department next to Mittal, Carroll exclaiming "is that mutant insane - the staff will all get mutated and die... who will repair the pollution monitors then!?!?"

Jackson broke out into rolling laughter, cackling... "too late Matt, the mutation already has you... and your little dog too."


*NEW*Cleveland City Hall - Former LTV Headquarters - where Cleveland must place air pollution monitoring and the Department of Health

The former LTV Steel Headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio, was bought by a Houston real estate firm for a song because it is in one of the most toxic sites on Earth - otherwise, it is a lovely building... lots of free parking and places for picnics.

I propose the Mayor of Cleveland, his Cabinet, the City Council members, and the Cleveland Department of Health all move here, as there is lots of space, it is cheap, and it offers an impressive view of Cleveland and the source of the death of the community. In one direction is Mittal and in all other directions... pure disaster - like life on Mars.

A complete arsenal of air quality and environmental monitoring devices should be located on the roof. Featured on this roof, in a screened enclosure with full toxic air fume flow-through, should be an environmental education center for advanced, wealthy college, private and parochial students to study and even spend nights or weeks, as Cleveland believes that air is as safe as in Gates Mills.

Rowing teams practicing crew on the Cuyahoga may have a club room here for afternoon tea.

The current City Hall should be converted into a home for environmentally harmed families to detoxify on their way out of the region for recovery from the harm caused here - all this should be provided at city of Cleveland expense....

Luckily, the rent at the LTV building is cheap... far cheaper than the luxury air conditioned offices currently rented by the Cleveland Health Department at Erieview Plaze (what does that cost us a square foot, and who gets those checks?).

Clearly, our city leaders need to be closer to the source of the pain and suffering in this community to understand the harm they cause, because all they are doing is greenwashing the region right now.

Action Jackson briefing only media that cares about pollution in OHIO

Disrupt IT

I still think the one in the middle

works for Cleveland's Law Department. 

I recall seeing that person in Cleveland's Prosecutor's office where I waited with Guy and wasted hours to file criminal charges.  I don't forget faces.   I think it is the employee that I thought was going to rip my head off when I asked for another pencil since the lead broke on the one we were using.

Maybe Jackson is working (ha) as a Mayor and Prosecutor both.  Do they call this double dipping?  No wonder we can't get anything done in this city.

No Idea - My spot is becoming popular

I asked if they were there to photograph death - obviously so

I told them the air pollution monitors said the air in Cleveland was super great that night and I was coming for a picnic...

But it was no picnic... as soon as I got past the womens prison the toxins hit my nose and throat - my throat went sore and I started to have difficulty breathing - eyes burning - the smell - I hate going to take these damn pictures...

Time to go take more damn pictures - meet me by Clark Field for sunrise...

Disrupt IT

With babes like that hanging out at at the popular spot

I might have to go hang out myself.

Cheap high,,, priceless,,, just inhale.

I know where I am going to take Guy for his birthday.  Guy is going to huff and get high for his birthday.  After he gets stoned, he will think that I took him to one of those high class restaurants in Tremont.  The places that I can't afford to go since my bum ass doesn't work and all I do is sit around all day causing trouble.  Since they will not accept my food stamp card in those restaurants, I have to get creative.

We can accomplish a lot today since we know where to get high- for free- and find the mayor/prosecutor.   We can talk to the mayor/prosecutor about the Sammy Catania assault cover up and get really stoned at the same time.  If Guy deeply inhales, I might even have an alien pick him up and take him for a ride to La La Land.

Guy, get your partying clothes on.  You are getting high today!!!!!!!!

The Mayor will hit you with his purse

Better be careful, Norm.  I would hate to hear about you getting "Cataniad".  It is legal, you know............

So is poisoning babies - this is Nazi Germany here

In fact, I bet real study will show the Nazis were highly poisoned by industrialism in Germany and that was a factor in their unnatural evil and hatred of humanity - lead poisoned!

He's counting on the Cartoon Network revenues for his retirement, which should be shortly.

I think he should bow out gracefully

I think he should bow out gracefully and admit he isn't up to what lays ahead - let new people get this place off to a new start.

Same for most of the council people.

They can all golden parachute over to CSU... lost politicians retirement home, until something further away is created for them.

Cleveland Law Department???

"WORK"??? We have been waiting for "public records" that, were requested in November of 2009....and in January 2010 and "they sent us the records they" wanted" and not "ALL" the records!"  Another request was made in Febuary 2010....WE HAVE BEEN IGNORED!!!  We have  a video of ONE OFFICIAL FROM EVERY DEPARTMENT OF CLEVELAND" at our door...with a search warrant....What a invasion of privacy....at 8:30 in the morning.  I believed there were 13 persons here...

"the search warrant"......

and.....there was "NO PROBABLE CAUSE"......from the "KANGAROO KOURT"............WE ARE ALL ACTORS ON A STAGE...and YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE "THE CAST OF "BAD ACTORS " THAT CAME .... let alone, the DIRECTOR of this FIASCO.... who sent  all the city officials...from the Mayors' office all the way down to "THE NIEGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION!"

do tell........

Cleveland Cabaret

the soundtrack, the descent into madness, and the carnival of sad clowns....it should be familiar to a lot of people, who sadly chose to forget...

Evelyn and I were just discussing correlations of evil

I'm going to start analyzing the correlations between metals processing in the world and evil - it seems R2 will be near 1 to me - the people who have done the most evil in the world were all touched by metals pollution... I'm sure of that - it goes back before the Roman Empire and is a common factor in the age of exploration, crusades, and all world wars - war is the result of metals pollution and we are all polluted here.

Accept the facts and evolve this community beyond this evil era - we are alone in our toxicity and must rise above it

Disrupt IT

For my grandmother

Who shared the horrors she witnessed during World War II with me--her first born grandchild.  Don't remain silent.  Speak out against the machine.

Dianna Hill brough up the

Dianna Hill brought up the subject of air pollution at the Mentor-Clark Block Club on Wednesday night - and she was encouraging everyone to call in and complain to the EPA about the pollution/smog/gasses/chemical/smoke they see or smell in the air they breath. 

I found it almost laughable when one of them responded something like - I don't complain because we live in the city.  The thought that went through my brain is - well, if we lived in the good ole clean country air, we would need to pay attention to what we breath?

I don't often comment on the air pollution simply because I don't know enough to make accurate statements, but my feelings are - the air we breath is essential to our existence on the planet.  It is the one thing we can't go to the store and buy a better quality of.  We're stuck with what ever people pump out into our space and the way it sort of looks is that - if we breath it and die, we're on our own.  If we breath it and suffer an altered existence, it's nobody's fault.  Unless it's highly detectable, there's no way of knowing who to blame -so again, we're on our own.

Do you think there would be grants that would cover the cost of gas masks for us all.  There are some days when we surely do need them. 

Common SENSE
