Makes Sense to Me


The New York Times reports that formaldehyde-contaminated FEMA trailers left over from Hurricane Katrina are being used to provide housing for workers cleaning up the Gulf oil spill. Representative Bennie Thompson of Mississippi has demanded an inquiry.

Please, if there's one good thing that could come out of the Gulf spill, it's a heightened environmental consciousness. Providing oil spill workers recycled housing is clear evidence of that.

Secondly, using the trailers to house oil spill workers is also a clever way of limiting the damage to human health. I mean, they've already been getting sick. You wouldn't want to put perfectly healthy people in those trailers, would you?

And if some of them die, the formaldehyde will probably slow down decomposition in the period before the bodies are found. And in that kind of heat, a dead body could make a serious stink.

Clearly, BP contractors have thought it all out.
