New Yorkers Rattled By Fake PSA Chemical And Nuclear Warning Posters

The work of “pranksters” providing the public with technically correct information. ANIMAL New York reports:

Relax, they’re not real. MTA spokesman Adam Lisberg, who dismissed the postings as “the work of pranksters,” told us so. But though neither of the posters were distributed by the MTA or any other state or city agency, both are totally truthful in their contents.

The NYPD will indeed be pumping the city with invisible gases called perflourocarbos this summer, in an effort to test how more harmful airborne substances would spread in the event of a chemical attack. And the nuclear power plant at Indian Point Energy Center is so at risk and so close to the city the Natural Resources Defense Council warns of a disaster ten to 100 times worse than Fukushima if it ever encounters seismic activity. Should you be worried? That’s up to you.

    Awesome. The fact that they are technically true makes it that much more so.

    NYC is a time bomb waiting to go off
    the situation reminds me of the old Sam Kinison routine
    about the famine in Ethiopia
    where he’d say:

    “I’ve got some advice for them…
    It’s a fucking desert! There’s no food there!
    Get the fuck out of there! It’s a desert!”

    NYC can’t be repair till after the next disaster.
