Second Response of Mililani Trask on issues of Health:
Needless to say we believe Mililani is wrong. The DOH used monitoring data on H2S to establish no harmful levels. The data was unreliable at best and has since been proven to be over 100 times lower than levels in the community. There is overwhelming evidence of health effects and negligence on the part of Hawaii DOH. DOH's Bruce Anderson refused to include anyone who said they were sick because of geothermal in the DOH study Mililani cites. It is not surprising then that the study found no problem, they eliminated everyone who complained of illness.
Here is some of what Miilani said.
The State’s own studies conducted in the 1980’s did not establish any connection between ill health & geothermal production activities. (Comment by Robert Petricci: the study was fatally flawed and biased against the community in favor of industry)
Dr. Bruce Anderson, an Environmental Epidemiologist, had oversight of the 1984 State study. He was also the State deputy director of Health when Mr. Legator released his report in 1997. Anderson challenged the Legator data & conclusions because Legator had only “studied” a handful of people (69) who were admittedly opposed to geothermal & who had a background on hydrogen sulfide.
