Welcome to the Louisiana "industrial rennaissance"

"The ride has just begun," an annoying media personality opines.

Hope you've got your seat belts fastened and your tray tables up and your phone... well I don't know what you're supposed to do with your phone anymore... but the important thing is that you know how to operate the oxygen mask.
Louisiana’s 17 refineries and two associated chemical plants averaged six accidents per week in 2012, resulting in the release of 2.3 million pounds of pollution, according to a study released Tuesday by the Louisiana Bucket Brigade.

The study was co-sponsored by the Standard Heights Community Association in Baton Rouge, Residents for Air Neutralization of Shreveport, the United Steelworkers, and the Occupational Health and Safety Section of the American Public Health Association.
