Today Carroll plays a recording of a 7/24/19 meeting on Kauai discussing the accuracy of water testing using phylochips.
Pan Handling on Mauna Kea.
While giving assurances the placement and operation of the
high-tech telescopes on Mauna Kea, using the best science and practices to
protect the fragile and unique ecosystem of Mauna Kea, we believe they are not practicing what they
preach.Records obtained under Hawaii’s Uniform InformationPractices Act paint a different picture.Some of those records show numerous spills of Hydraulic fluids and oil, approximately
380pounds of the hazardous chemical fire
retardant Heptafluropropane, and improperly and unlawfully storing and
transporting hazardous waste.
These pictures shows one of their high-tech methods for protecting
the fragile and unique ecosystem of Mauna Kea.
Note, the W.H. Keck observatory(MMKO) is using aluminum
serving pans “to capture hydraulic floods leaking from the Hydrostatic Bearing
System (HBS) at the approximate rate of 0.25 gallons per month.Some portion of that seeped hydraulic oil has
been released into the ground below the facility.The duration of the release is yet unknown.”
