The purpose of this document is to share with the Faithful our views
regarding this very current and hotly debated issue: Man's Impact on
his Environment. Now that all "experts" have spoken, with President
Bush logically sharing his corner with Ratzinger (1) and with Former Vice
President Al Gore in the opposing corner, we will speak.
Before his conversion to the no-compromise practice of the Catholic
Faith, miguel was a practicing Chemical and Environmental Engineer - a
Senior Chemical Process Specialist with much experience at all levels
in the field. Temporarily wearing the hat of the man who was to become
miguel de Portugal [that is, speaking as miguel B.C. (Before Conversion)], he states: If you have
studying a problem, you will have five different opinions.
There will only be agreement by all on one opinion: Further study is necessary. This is
because "further study" is the source of additional grants in the
Universities and R&D funding in the private industry.
From the same podium he would also state: We cannot discount the
contribution of natural causes for the accelerating global warming but,
at the same time, we cannot deny the horrific impact "civilization" is
having on the Environment.
Theologically speaking we could also say: There you have another silent, but clear,
warning from God - Global Warming.... as the "civilized" world
approaches hell, it is bound to get hotter!
We will now recount a few front line experiences the man who was to
become m de P lived while discharging his professional duties for his
employer, who was then the fourth largest petrochemical firm in the
The "Grandfather Clause"
A grandfather clause is an exception that allows an old rule to
continue to apply to some existing situations, when a new rule will
apply to all future situations. It is often used as a verb: to
"grandfather" means to grant such an exemption. For example, a
"grandfathered power plant" might be exempt from newer and tougher
pollution laws. Often, such a provision is used as a compromise, to
effect new rules without upsetting a well-established logistical or
political situation. This extends the idea of a rule not being
"retroactively applied". (2)
This clause was amply invoke and abused by the chemical and
It was a great and profitable clause because... They would keep old
polluting plants running, as long as it was physically possible, by
essentially rebuilding the same old plant through "routine maintenance"
work. The "beauty" of it was that maintenance work is immediately 100 %
tax deductible while new capital expenditures have to be depreciated
over time. Therefore: It was a win-win solution for the industry and a
lose-lose solution for the public.
That is the Petrochemical equivalent to the 007 Agent License to Kill.
What's a little spent uranium
mixed with the water to shower? To drink? To bathe in?
Most of you remember the publicity associated with the Gulf War
Syndrome wherein some experts felt that the syndrome may have been
caused by the pollution caused by the shells used during the war since
their armored projectiles contained spent uranium. If that had been the
case we would probably have nation wide Gulf War Syndrome. Why? Allow
In the mid sixties a new catalyst was developed to produce a certain
chemical, which was then the raw material to many every day plastics.
Its production, worldwide, was in the billions of pounds. It was m de P
(B.C.), who was in charge of all aspects for the change over to the
"new and improved" catalyst for the company he was associated with. The
reactor redesign, determining and monitoring the environmental impact,
overseeing the analytical developments required to monitor the new
operations, etc. were part of his responsibilities. As a point of
reference - the EPA, as we know it now, did not exist in those days.
The "new and improved" catalyst contained a substantial percentage of
Uranium Oxide - containing U 234 (3). Because of its expense,
we monitored its use quite closely - a usage which, if memory does not
fail, was in the hundreds of thousands of pounds per year.
That uranium containing catalyst was released into the environment via
the flare stack and as part of a liquid waste which was disposed of by
injection into deep wells. The use of that catalyst spread everywhere
in the US and the world - and probably there are a few chemical
complexes that still use it. Thus, if the uranium exposure - even if it
was from different uranium isotopes - was the cause of Gulf War
Syndrome, the disease, or a related one, probably would have been
widespread amongst non Gulf War combatants too.
The "purple plume"
In another major project in which m de P (B.C.) was a key player from
its very conception, a certain chemical was used - methyl iodide. (4) In those Google-less
days part of m de P's function was to determine the toxicity and
environmental impact of the chemicals that were going to be used in the
new process. The whole operation was so cutting edge that new metal
alloys had to be developed to be able to fabricate the equipment that
would contain such chemicals.
Among the effects methyl iodide had in humans was dementia (we can see
m de P's enemies saying now "We knew
it! You see, he is demented!"). Therefore a major effort was
made to prevent contamination in laboratories, the pilot plant and
commercial plant. "Thankfully" before it affected the human brain it
would alert us because it would seriously burn the skin.
During chemical plants process upsets, the flare stacks that can
be seen within chemical complexes, are used to burn the gaseous
effluents to minimize hazards to life and property. Sometimes the rate
of venting could be as high 250,000 pounds per hour.
When a methyl iodide containing stream was vented and burned at the tip
of the flare, a purple plume was visible. That was because the methyl
iodide was broken down into molecular iodine which in the vapor state
is purple. As one may have expected, those colorful plumes caught the
attention of the neighbors and the then existing EPA or equivalent,
therefore, formal complaints followed..
The engineers who were in charge of the operations then - m de P (B.C.)
was then marketing the process worldwide - had a "brilliant" idea:
Inject steam at the tip of the flare and the purple plume would turn
into a nice white inoffensive looking fluffy plume.
What happened was that when they injected steam into a stream
containing molecular iodine, it reacted - yielding hydrogen iodide and
hydriodic acid. (5)
Hydrogen iodide is a very corrosive acid with no odor, and no color is
detectable to observers. The masses were fooled again!
Brethren - this IS just barely the tip of the proverbial iceberg [we
could write volumes], but this should be enough to give you an idea how
we are really harming the environment and human life. Think of it next
time someone "weighs in" denying that we are seriously impacting the
environment - it does not matter if the one who denies it wears Pradas
and an ermine shawl (1).
The movie Erin Brockovich (6) just gave the people a
very small (but accurate) window of a very dark reality.
We want to go on record stating that:
Generally speaking, in the projects
where m de P (B.C.) was involved, he and his immediate superiors truly
tried to do what was right with the know-how available at the time. (7)
Regarding the uranium based catalyst....Although he comprehensively
evaluated the radiation hazard, under any and all circumstances, from
the use of the above mentioned catalyst to ensure total safety, he and
his superiors overlooked the heavy metal contamination angle.
Nonetheless, if he had realized that problem and raised the point, he
probably would have been dismissed from employment - there was so much
money associated with it for all parties concerned.
The above is not a white wash. If m de P today had to swear in court
about the commitment of his management to plant safety in those days,
he would have to state that: There
was not one situation that he can recall wherein the management team
would place money before employee and environmental safety. The errors
committed were due to outright ignorance or oversight as we have stated
Unfortunately, the world has changed much in forty years and ethics and
morals have become museum pieces. Now, most individuals in the same
positions would sell their mothers, wives and children if they got a
good price for them! Therefore, one can easily imagine what is being
done to the environment now.
Let us continue to

(1) News Quote
Pope Benedict XVI has launched a
surprise attack on climate change prophets of doom, warning them that
any solutions to global warming must be based on firm evidence and not
on dubious ideology.
The leader of more than a billion Roman Catholics suggested that fears
over man-made emissions melting the ice caps and causing a wave of
unprecedented disasters were nothing more than scare-mongering.
The German-born Pontiff said that while some concerns may be valid it
was vital that the international community based its policies on
science rather than the dogma of the environmentalist movement.

failing to accept responsibilities and postponing decisions; it
means being committed to making joint decisions after pondering
responsibly the road to be taken."
