Describes KMX’s potential impacts to the environment and residents of the North Shore, by evaluating outcomes of previous spills. Includes:

  • A NSNOPE report reviewing exposure to past oil spills and its resulting health effects, including respiratory and cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases and cancer. Outlines gaps in the data and science.
  • Speculative concerns regarding KMX’s potential to negatively impact North Shore property values; reviewed past spills’ actual negative impacts to surrounding areas’ property values.
  • Concerns regarding proposed evacuation routes.
