Tinicum still on standby as more flights loom over township
Delaware County Daily Times Mar 07, 2006
"From what I understand, planes now have to be five nautical miles apart and they want to bring that down to three," said Tinicum Township Manager Norbert Poloncarz, referring to the most far-reaching of four airspace redesign alternatives under consideration by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Without additional improvements to the runways and airspace design, airport officials predict average delay times could top 28 minutes by 2015, when PHL is projected to handle nearly 800,000 flights annually.

Fight airplane noise Monday
Cherry Hill Courier Post, NJ - Mar 21, 2006
You probably saw the big, front-page headline March 4 in the Courier-Post: "Noisier skies ahead?: FAA plans would add to flights over South Jersey."But that was more than two weeks ago. Odds are you took note of it, then moved on to more pressing matters. If you care about your quality of life in South Jersey and the value of your home, however, the possibility of 47 percent more departures from Philadelphia over South Jersey is a very pressing matter.

America's Most Polluted Cities
Forbes.com Mar. 21, 2006
The EPA and other monitoring organizations have two major categories of emissions: particle pollution and ozone pollution. Particle pollution (traditionally known as soot in the air) is a mixture of solids and liquid droplets suspended in air. The solids are made up of nitric acid and sulfuric acid accompanied by traces of metals, dirt and organic chemicals. Ground-level ozone (often referred to as smog) is produced when sunlight combines with hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxide. It is most apparent on sunny days near busy highways and in cities, and appears as a dirty yellow haze from a distance.
