Lack of Outcry Over Airline Pollutants



In April of this year you published my letter concerning the airline flights over Laguna Beach after the closure of El Toro Marine Air Station.

It seems that there is no measurable public reaction to this new element of pollution. I would like to add some specifics to this terrible condition. The airlines’ flights over Laguna Beach dumps the following onto our town:  benzene, hexane, toluene, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, plus a small amount of lead.  These chemicals are highly toxic, dangerous and deadly as we inhale them on a daily basis.

Where are the outcries and protests?
