Dumped Jet Fuel

Field in northwest Tennessee

Reports of the BP Oil Spill impacting farms in west Tennessee has been debunked.

When a Tennessee TV station aired a report last month on mysterious damage afflicting crops in an area of the mid-South, it set off a firestorm of speculation as to the cause — with some bloggers blaming it on the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

But it turns out the damage was due to petrochemical spillage of another kind: jet-fuel dumping.

I’ll be honest with you, I had no idea that jet’s could just dump fuel.
