NYC – MTA Gas Test Backfires! New Yorkers Are Angry, And Rightly So! Widespread Health Problems Coming
This morning, the MTA distributed notifications to straphangers thanking them for participating in a Perfluorocarbon gas experiment. The cards explained that the NYPD and Brookhaven National Laboratory (sponsored by the Department of Defense) would be pumping the “colorless, odorless and powerful” greenhouse gas through 21 subway lines throughout July. Called the “Subway-Surface Air Flow Exchange” study, the exercise is being conducted as a test to ward against unwanted chemical attacks, but the notification card itself is alarming in itself.
