EP 494: Erin Brockovich Is Still Fighting the Good Fight
20 years after the film Erin Brockovich raised awareness about water contamination, the real Erin Brockovich talks about how her that movie changed her life, the moment when she realized that she had to stand up for the citizens of Hinckley, California, and her outrage that dangerous levels of Chromium-6 still exist in the water of hundreds of municipalities across the U.S. She explains why environmental regulators aren’t doing their jobs, and how she’s helped angry moms mobilize their communities to demand clean water in Flint, Michigan, Hannibal, Missouri, and as far away as Greece. Plus Erin offers advice on how to evaluate the purity of water that comes out of your faucet, what contaminants to look for, and who to turn to when something doesn’t look right.
