Superman's not coming : our national water crisis and what we the people can do about it by Erin Brockovich( Book )

11 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Water. The single most necessary element to sustain life. Brockovich warns that America's water crisis isn't looming on the horizon--it's already here. Superman Isn't Coming makes clear that the most precious resource on planet Earth is alarmingly polluted by toxins, hazardous waste, lead, fracking chemicals, and more. In the 20 years since her eponymous film, Brockovich has kept up the fight for clean water one town at a time. She receives thousands of letters each month from people across the country writing to her with water concerns regarding chemicals,who don't know who else to turn to. Brockovich has become a modern-day superhero responding to pleas for help throughout our country, from citizens whose letters and pleas have been ignored by their local representatives, the EPA, the Department of Natural Resources, the CDC, their local water authority with troubling situations that go unheeded and conditions not magically righting themselves. Brockovich can't fight all the fights and save our water on her own. The simple truth is that Superman isn't coming to save us. Her book is an urgent call for all of us. And in it, Brockovich makes clear why we are in the trouble we're in, and how we each can take small and large actions and change troubling conditions. She writes about the effects of climate change that have caused droughts in some areas and flooding in others, and shows how this is affecting us economically as well as destroying lives and property. She lays out the facts, and gives us the tools to take steps--large and small--to make changes in our own counties, cities and towns, and help to preserve our selves, our water, our planet"--

"Environmental activist AJ Palladino, first encountered in Rock Bottom, is no stranger to the juggling act of managing both work and family. But when she's asked to leave home and take a case involving a nuclear power plant, it takes all her skills to keep her world from crashing down on her. Colleton River is a new one-of-a-kind nuclear facility designed to create medical isotopes with the potential to save millions of lives. Unfortunately, the plant has been plagued by a series of mishaps that, despite several investigations, have remained unexplained, other than plain old bad luck. The accidents have caused the locals to protest the plant while drawing the attention of an anti-nuclear protest group as well as several home-grown terrorists who sense an opportunity to sow fear and chaos. Owen Grandel, Colleton River's owner, travels from South Carolina to West Virginia to personally ask AJ for help. AJ knows she's going to have her hands full investigating the accidents and calming the situation at the plant. What she doesn't foresee is her simple business trip turning into disaster when her grandmother suffers a near-fatal accident back home, her parents are deemed unfit to watch her son, and, after an approaching hurricane traps AJ in South Carolina, her son disappears. Things really heat up when she discovers the cause of the "accidents" and learns that the plant is hurtling towards nuclear catastrophe--with AJ stranded at ground zero. Can AJ stop the plant's meltdown, save the community, herself, and her family in time?"--

Superman's not coming : our national water crisis and what we the people can do about it by Erin Brockovich( )

5 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the environmental activist, consumer advocate, renowned crusader, and champion fighter whose courageous case against Pacific Gas and Electric was dramatized in the Oscar-winning film--a book to inspire change that looks at our present situation with water and reveals the imminent threats to our most precious, essential element as it shows us how, in large and practical ways, we can each take action to make changes in our cities, our towns, and our villages before it is too late. In Erin Brockovich's long-awaited book--her first to reckon with conditions on our planet--she makes clear why we are in the trouble we're in and warns us that if we're waiting for someone to save us, Superman isn't coming. Nor is the government or the environmental agencies. No one is going to solve this for us. It is up to us, we the people, and Brockovich shows us how. She shows us what's at stake (the average American uses nearly one hundred gallons of water each day, for everything from drinking to cooking to bathing), writing of the unreported cancer clusters, of plastic pollutants in our tap water (we produce more than three hundred million tons annually of plastic in the world, and half of all plastics created for disposable items such as water bottles), of the fraudulent science that disguises these issues. She identifies and describes the most toxic chemicals in everyday products, from shampoos and baby lotions to cell phones and Tupperware, with only a few hundred under regulation, among them asbestos, lead, mercury, radon, and formaldehyde. She describes the saga of PG&E that continues to this day, and how her work in Hinckley, California, far from being a oneoff situation, opened up a rabbit hole bigger than anyone could have imagined, leading Brockovich to all of our backyards. We see the communities and people with whom she has worked and who have helped to make an impact: the water operator in Poughkeepsie, New York, who changed his system to create some of the safest water in the country; the moms in Hannibal, Missouri, who became the first citizens in the nation to file an ordinance prohibiting the use of ammonia in their public drinking water; the woman in Tonganoxie (Tongie), Kansas, who fought to keep a massive, $320 million Tyson chicken processing complex out of her town (population: 5,300). Throughout, Brockovich, ever inspiring, empowers us, urging us to act on what we know is right: to ask questions, to scrutinize our water professionals; showing us ways to protect our health, our families, and our lives; to storm our city halls, to use local media, town hall meetings, etc., until our water is safe for everyone to drink. Whether we have PhDs, or degrees in science or in law; whether we're politicians, or government or agency officials, Brockovich shows us how we can each take baby steps to make a difference that can, and will, and must change the world

The town that caught Tourette's( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary is about a small town, Le Roy in New York state, USA, where a group of teenage girls who attended the same high school developed symptoms that looked like Tourette's syndrome; violent and uncontrollable motor and vocal tics. In desperation, the young women posted videos of their tics on YouTube. The jury is out whether or not they are victims of 'conversion' disorder (the manifestation of physical symptoms caused by a psychological trigger), 'mass hysteria' or the condition has an environmental trigger. It has also been hard to establish whether the girls have or have not taken any recreational drugs such as cannabis. The high school asked the State Health Department to investigate any commonalities between the girls. An industrial hygienist company swept the building for environmental risks. Nothing was discovered in the building, although suspicions fall on the playing field which may have been used for recycling industrial waste. Parents find it hard to accept that their daughters had been suffering from psychological stress so they took their story to the media. Erin Brockovich appears on TV and in the 1970s she tells how a rail derailment which caused a small spill of TCE and cynanide may have seeped into the water table or the gravel from a nearby quarry was used in constructing the school. These revelations have proved catastrophic for local businesses. A paediatric neurologist, Dr Rosario Trifiletti, becomes convinced that the tics had been caused by an infection - Pandas (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal infections). The girls treated with antibiotics have improved; the girls also treated for conversion disorder have also started to get better. A journalist investigating the families discovers there were unusual personal traumas, lendiung weight to the conversion theory. Most girls have made significant progress except one. In the end, Erin Brockovich's team found no environmental link with the TCE/cyanide spill
