Dupont Flouts Humanity, and Toxifies Planet
AwN | For decades Dupont has covered up the effects of C8 used in teflon. They have since removed C8 due to mounting legal pressure, and yet in the end they still accrue more than 95$ million in sales every day. Are they responsible for cleaning the blood of 99.7 percent of Americans who now have C8 in their blood? Will they clean the sea turtles, polar bears, caribou, and walruses? Why is it that it is ok to bust every pot head and whistle blower and yet this corporation can completely alter the environment with a toxic chemical, and after a few slaps on the wrist be held no more responsible than you or I? What defunct machination of the human experience allows people to do these things and get away with it. In what sick and twisted part of the universe is it ok that a supposedly intelligent species allows a few men with vast profits on their mind to so thoroughly toxify the environment that clean up costs would be unimaginably high, although probably downright impossible. Dupont and the Chemistry of Deception
I believe this happens because there is no monetary reward for activism. While corporations can sit and wait out anything in their way, because in the end the bottom line will win out, people often can only muster the steam to fight for so long. Since there is no prize at the end of the road most of the good folks who care about the planet give up and the door is opened for whatever corporation to do whatever they want, until too many people have died, at which point they again need to sit and wait out opposition, who again will receive nothing for their opposition, and in turn, give up. The answer is to hold these people criminally responsible to a court of those in Accord with Nature.
THE TEFLON TOXIN
DuPont and the Chemistry of Deception
"A man-made compound that didn’t exist a century ago, C8 is in the blood of 99.7 percent of Americans, according to a 2007 analysis of data from the Centers for Disease Control, as well as in newborn human babies, breast milk, and umbilical cord blood. A growing group of scientists have been tracking the chemical’s spread through the environment, documenting its presence in a wide range of wildlife, including Loggerhead sea turtles, bottlenose dolphins, harbor seals, polar bears, caribou, walruses, bald eagles, lions, tigers, and arctic birds. Although DuPont no longer uses C8, fully removing the chemical from all the bodies of water and bloodstreams it pollutes is now impossible. And, because it is so chemically stable — in fact, as far as scientists can determine, it never breaks down — C8 is expected to remain on the planet well after humans are gone from it."
