A Neighbor's Report to the Environment Department

Here's a typical report sent in by one of Intel's neighbors on almost a daily basis. This is a company that was allowed by the State of New Mexico to locate in a residential neighborhood with NO Environmental Impact Study ever done.

Robert,
Friday, December 22, 2006, 7:30 p.m.
Wind: Calm with burning fumes saturating the atmosphere. Steam can be seen from Loma Larga as well as from our backyard. We have noticed these plumes for several nights and during the snow storms in the past days and week. You would think the air would clear while it was snowing but that's not the case.

Tonight, a Windover neighbor called to inquire about what's happening. The smoky fumes came into their bedroom while they opened the window for a very short time. She and her husband experienced a burning sensation in the throat with coughing/choking.

I too had a reaction to something coming in through the vents. Felt groggy and had throat and sinus irritation. My husband who was in bed, got up to see what the problem was and fell. It took me a long time to get him off the floor because of the extreme weakness in his legs. I would like an answer as to what is in the atmosphere around here and what Intel is doing.

I have asked Frank Gallegos for the name/names of the bacteria they admit is in those cooling towers. So far, no answer. I doubt if Intel will disclose it.

We do have a right to know what we are being forced to breathe.

Please inquire yourself or find someone else to do the research regarding these matters.
Thanks,
Joy
