The chemical safety board is the federal government agency charged with investigating industrial chemical accidents. So I was surprised to see them release a youtube video aimed at high school students earlier this week. Apparently, high school students have been getting themselves killed by going to abandoned oil production sites and exploding low grade crude oil filled tanks. In the past 27 years 36 teenagers and 6 young adults have died at these sites.
The video is shown through the eyes of friends and family of two recently deceased teenagers.
Update 1: Apparently also covered by CENtral Science – Exploding oil storage sites are “No Place To Hangout”
