'For those who want to know more
about Newberry Springs.'
by Ted Stimpfel
For the last half-decade, I have been warning of the hazards
of fine particulate silica dust. The warnings have been to not only educate
on the silica dust that is naturally blowing in the Mojave Valley but to also
discourage additional silica exposures resulting from the dangerous and
inappropriate placement of solar development.
A part of my effort has included corresponding and speaking
with the California Air Resources Board's staff on the health need of monitoring
the Sand Transport Paths (STPs) in the Mojave Valley and the Morongo Basin for the ARB's
I have also been trying to have the California Office of Environmental
Health Hazard Assessment have its
map data recognize STPs.
In fighting each solar project that targets the Mojave Valley,
I have found that our highly corrupt County officials use the misleading
mapping as a partial excuse to justify their discrimination and inequality of
placing solar projects in our economically disadvantaged communities.
But now, a recent
subsidized by the California Air Resources Board has
a correlation that ultrafine particulate matter, finer than PM 2.5, maybe a far
greater health risk than previously believed when breathed in with common Ozone (O3).
With the elevated exposure from the heightened cumulative silica
dust from solar facilities, the health damage may be an exponential injury.
On March 10, 2022, the CARB has scheduled a research seminar
to cover the possible ramifications of the study.
A signup registration link for the research seminar
will be later posted here.
Should you favor more news blogs,
Anyone who feels that the solar projects in the Silver
Valley are (or will be) physically impacting their pulmonary function
is encouraged to join our activist victims' group. With sufficient
numbers, we may be able to address this outrageous public harm.
