· Working in concert with actuaries of re-insurance companies and labor unions to convert 50 American refineries who still have large 55,000-gallon and 15,000-gallon tanks of Hydrofloric Acid for alkenation with a 73-degree F boiling point (including additives) instead of Sulfuric Acid
alkenation with high boiling point of 560-degrees; converting to series of small tanks, or shut them down due to immense risk to persons and fiscal disaster while being only 10% of the fuel supply.
· Organizing local purchase of: Infra-red camera devices to determine where the residue is falling and test there; and handheld particulant monitors to parts per billion.
· Organizing community “bucket brigades” to test their own local areas instead of believing oil companies’ scrubbed data, vastly under-risk self-insurance firm, or mature life-cycle holding companies fronting for larger oil corporations to avoid moral and legal liability.
