Comment: I will clear up some common sense for you

I will clear up some common sense for you

I happen to live 7 miles from 1349 river rd in Middletown CT - home of the Kleen Energy plant that exploded in February of 2010 - killing 6 and injuring about 50 people.

Litte background - this was a natural gas power plant being constructed. The lines were being cleaned - which they do by sending gas through the lines and blowing out debris. Something went wrong and the gas ingnited causing a rather large blast.

I was outside cutting wood - at seven miles you heard what sounded just like rolling thunder in the distance - then a matter of seconds later the blast. At seven miles away I FELT the concussion from the blast hit me - and it was LOUD.
Many houses that were close to the plant were serverely damaged by the blast(which by the way -the plant is on the side of the CT river - no houses right next door like this plant)

This too shot up a cloud into the sky. This too would probably have looked like a bomb if someone had a picture.

Our first thought was a terrorist attack(the old nuclear power plant is not far from where the blast was) - I never thought an explosion from a power plant could be so powerful to actually feel the concussion that far away - and their were many reports of people MUCH farther away feeling the blast.

That was just a little natural gas - again the plant was NOT online - they were just cleaning the pipes. I can imagine the energy in the fertilizer would be many times greater.

Enough conspiracy crap. Accidents happen.
"Common sense would dictate that this type of seismic activity and the crater size could have only occurred with the use of a powerful missile or bomb and the video evidence certainly supports it."

I dont think common sense applies to issues that you have ZERO experience with - common sense applies to things you encounter on a regular basis and can interpret based upon repetitive experience with. Have you ever SEEN a missle flying through the sky in person??

If you want a conspiracy - here it is
"On 5 August 2010, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced that it planned to fine seventeen companies involved in the construction of the plant a total of $16.6 million. OSHA said that it had found a total of 371 safety violations in the construction of the plant, 225 of which it considered deliberate.[27] The Chemical Safety Board released its final report on 28 June 2010.[28] "

Not one person went to jail for this, not one company shut down for good. 16 million - a drop in the bucket of the price of the plant(which then had to be rebuilt again - so more money for the contrators).

Regulators NOT doing a damn thing.
