The 7 worst neighborhoods near refineries - Oil is everywhere
Wow! Has whoever made this up ever had ANY journalism training? The demographic info on Beaumont TX (about 45% African American in the last Census) must have been pulled from thin air. And why would someone think it's OK to accuse a corporation of illegal dumping of chemicals with absolutely no attribution.
This type of unresearched, unattributed garbage gives environmentalists a bad name rather than leading to a better understanding of the very real problems we face on this planet.
Hi Beth, we appreciate hearing from you. There was a copy editing error in the original version of this article where the population of Beaumont was listed as *95*% African-American rather than the accurate *45%*. We regret this error and it has been corrected.
San Pedro and Torrance, CA are not only surrounded by oil refineries, but they boast a much larger population, endangering many more people. Carson, CA stinks 24/7 and on "inversion layer" days we can't even go outside. Disgusting.
I make my living in the Oil Field.
That's why we are called "Oil Field Trash"
I say give me more!!!
Stop buying gasoline, diesel, and plastics! Don't travel on planes! Then there won't be any need for these places!
