Human Health Impact Assessment

Submitted by: Living Oceans Society

The evidence:

Dr. Stuart Batterman, University of Michigan, is an expert in environmental health science. He reviewed the Human Health Risk Assessment and concluded that it, as well, was so fundamentally flawed as to leave us incapable of predicting impacts on human health. The failure of the report to identify such critical factors as the location of places where people could be exposed to emissions from the project would leave regulators unable to plan for emergency response such as evacuation or ‘shelter in place’ orders; health care facilities unable to plan for emergencies and the NEB unable to conclude that the project could be completed and operated without risk to human health.
