Community Geothermal Meeting at Akebono Theater Saturday, February 9th in Pahoa, Hawaii
Harry Kim gives an update us on his effort to raise awareness statewide on geothermal issues, including information about bills currently being heard at the State Legislature..
Dr Kaye Kilburn, one of the leading experts on H2S (Hydrogen Sulfide) health effects spoke to the community about H2S, its health impacts, and his proposed health study. Dr. Kaye H. Kilburn's career spanned problem-solving in respiratory failure, emphysema, asbestosis and byssinosis at Duke University and Mount Sinai School of Medicine and more recently neurobehavioral and pulmonary impairment as a result of exposure to common chemicals: mold, hydrogen sulfide, diesel, pesticides, and insecticides. Dr. Kiburn demonstrated some of the tests he uses when he does health studies in cases such as the BP Gulf oil spill.
Fracking geothermal was also explained by Tom Travis of Puna Pono Alliance, but unfortunately my battery died. If you would like to contribute to the "Buy the Media Team a Battery Fund" please send an email to OccupyHiloMedia@yahoo.com Mahalo for your kokua!
