Scientist Urges More New Orleans Air Testing

The Advocate runs this piece today about a scientist that has worked with a number of enviromental groups urging that more comprehensive air testing be done before people are allowed back in New Orleans.

She makes a number of points that we have. The most important, though, is that as sediment dries and blows around, it leaves restricted areas and is carried to areas that people have been allowed back to. Thus, nowhere in the city can be declared safe for rehabitation, even once the waters from Hurricane Rita are pumped out and the levees repaired.
