Skip to comments.Live: Sodium Cyanide from Tianjin Warehouse Has Leaked into Underground Drain Wate
Posted on 08/13/2015 9:17:52 AM PDT by Chad_the_Impaler
An elite team of military personnel, who entered the warehouse in Tianjin to remove 700 tonnes of sodium cyanide, have found that the toxic chemical has leaked into underground drain water.
Sodium cyanide has now also been detected in the sewage water, personnel from the Environment Protection Bureau told The Beijing News.

>> Sodium cyanide has now also been detected in the sewage water
I have been told by people who have visited China that when you go over there, NEVER under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES drink the sewage water!!!
Dilution is the solution...
That seems to be the EPA’s reaction to the Colorado mine disaster, even though they are holding our feet to the fire to control stormwater runoff from a parking lot...
I generally boil it before drinking... but now, won’t even do that!
And you thought the Japanese were hush-hush about Fukushima, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Is there any other kind of water in China?
Point taken. :-)
Well, good. Let’s take care of that debt shall we—say $10 a gallon plus shipping for great tasting potable water from the USA?
Where will we be able to get our sewage-raised tilapia from now?
Now China! You didn’t have to make a knock off EPA incident like we have here in Colorado you sillies!
That’s gonna show up in inexpensive shrimp at the supermarket.
Should clear out the rats though.
Pump acid into drains to kill it. Have our EPA monitor it.
Don’t expect our government to try to leverage an enemy’s misfortune to improve our strategic position. Obama will offer to pay for the clean up, put the injured on Obamacare, and offer them citizenship.
APPEARANCE: White crystalline or granular powder.
DESCRIPTION: Sodium cyanide releases hydrogen cyanide gas, a highly toxic chemical asphyxiant that interferes with the body’s ability to use oxygen. Exposure to sodium cyanide can be rapidly fatal. It has whole-body (systemic) effects, particularly affecting those organ systems most sensitive to low oxygen levels: the central nervous system (brain), the cardiovascular system (heart and blood vessels), and the pulmonary system (lungs). Sodium cyanide is used commercially for fumigation, electroplating, extracting gold and silver from ores, and chemical manufacturing. Hydrogen cyanide gas released by sodium cyanide has a distinctive bitter almond odor (others describe a musty “old sneakers smell”), but a large proportion of people cannot detect it; the odor does not provide adequate warning of hazardous concentrations. Sodium cyanide is odorless when dry. Sodium cyanide is shipped as pellets or briquettes. It absorbs water from air (is hygroscopic or deliquescent).
This should mix well with the hundreds of tons of mercury they dump into the drains and water supply.

Not so much, when the reporter from NBC very clearly showed that the “heavy” part of the spill (i.e., the dangerous, lead/arsenic part) was laying on the floor of the river.
The old gas chamber fuel....
And beloved murder method by mystery writers of the thirties.
How did they clearly show it?
Everyone knows that this material settled out to the bottom. This is one of the reasons they don’t dredge behind dams downstream of the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, because the material is contaminated with all sorts of heavy metals and radioactive materials.
LOL. Unlike Cuba, where you can drink the pristine sewage water.
