"Bucket Brigade: Air Pollution Increases at Refineries in 2012"

"In issuing its annual report on refinery accidents and pollution releases Tuesday, the Louisiana Bucket Brigade took a slightly different approach by urging refinery workers, employees and people living around the facilities to report what they see, hear and smell. ...

According to the report , there were 327 accidents last year, down from 346 accidents in 2011.

However, the amount of material released last year due to those accidents was more than in 2011 with 2.3 million pounds of air pollution — a 15 percent increase over 2011 — and 12.7 million gallons of water pollution."
