Libby, Montana [ePub]

by Andrea Peacock

This is an investigative report of the tragic history of W.R. Grace Corporation's disrespect and destruction of people and the environment in a small mining town in northwest Montana. Researched and written by a journalist, this book links an asbestos-vermiculite mining operation http://www.libbyasbestos.org/ and lax state and federal agency oversight to gross corporate coverup, obstruction, and abandonment. Libby has been called the "Chernobyl of the U.S." and remains one of the worst EPA Superfund sites in a time when funding for cleanup is uncertain. Lastly the author questions the procedures employed in the cleanup after the World Trade Center terrorist attacks; thousands of tons of asbestos laden fireproofing (raw materials were from Libby's Vermiculite mountain) enveloped the steel support beams of the building. If interested, you can read a review: "Vermiculite, Cancer & Lies" by M. Nijhuis http://healthandenergy.com/vermiculit... from Health and Energy.(lj)
