Chemical Rant: Shame on Kasich & Tomblin

Shame on Ohio Governor John Kasich and West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin! This week the governors of three states (New York, New Hampshire and Vermont) demanded action from US EPA on C8/PFOA. Ohio and WV remain the most impacted by this toxic industrial solvent and have by far the most contaminated people (that we know of so far).

Does Kasich know we have this serious public health issue? Has Tomblin never heard of DuPont’s Teflon toxin?

Gentlemen, your inaction is dated and unacceptable. Now that others have set an example, do something for the people you claim to represent.

(Friends, please help spread this message so that it cannot be ignored.)
