It's a gas!

From the Daily News:

Lawyers for a Queens beverage company are sounding the alarm that there’s an imminent threat of an explosion at its Long Island City warehouse due to methane gas leaking from waste oil at the adjacent property, the Daily News has learned.

They’re seeking an injunction in Brooklyn Federal Court ordering Exxon Mobil to deal with the longstanding problem at the contaminated site where recent tests show methane gas readings are 10 times the acceptable level of risk, according to court papers.

Phoenix Beverages filed suit in 2012 alleging that the building next door, Quanta Resources Corp., at 37-80 Review Ave., was used as a waste-oil facility from 1970 to 1981, and fumes are migrating from underground oil.

Boycott Exxon Mobil. Go to their website and let them know. I have not bought Exxon Mobil for years because of this.
