If you are an attorney, and if you are outraged that chemical companies are selling toxic waste to our water districts and our water districts are duped into slowly poisoning us with it, and if you want to do something about it, contact me.

I understand how the science links up with the law on this subject. I am looking for attorneys to work with, particularly if they have experience in class actions or mass toxic tort actions.

I went to law school wanting to be an environmental attorney. But when I graduated, the only jobs I could find in the environmental law field were working for polluters. So I got into other areas of law to make a living. Now I am back doing the type of law that interests me most, so far on a pro bono basis. That may change.

Big chemical companies have enormous amounts of fluorosilicic acid that they need to offload. The cost of disposing of it otherwise is expensive. So they sell it to our water districts for around $.37 per pound.

Fluorosilicic acid is not pure fluorosilicic acid. The contents of the tanker truck are around 75.5% water, 23% fluorosilicic acid, and 1.5% hydrogen fluoride.

NSF Fact Sheets from 2000 and 2008 admit that fluorosilicic acid contains minute amounts of the following: 1.6 ppb lead, 1.6 ppb arsenic, .04 ppb mercury, .12 ppb cadmium, .2 ppb chromium, 2.6 ppb copper, .06 ppb thallium, 3.2 ppb selenium, .3 ppb barium, .6 ppb beryllium.

The thallium is radioactive and emits up to .6 millirems of beta rays per year. See the NSF Fact Sheets from 2000 and 2008.

This may turn out to be one of the most significant class action or mass toxic tort actions ever.

I am planning to do a fluoridation continuing legal education seminar through NBI. Let me know if you are interested in participating.
