Bill Resnick speaks with John Rumpler, the clean water program director and senior attorney for Environment America, a national organization dedicated to protecting clean air, clean water, and promoting clean energy. Rumpler has spent years investigating the 80,000 chemicals approved for commercial sale in the U.S. and their toxic effects on our health and environment. They discuss the difficulty of winning in court against poisoning our environment, the uneven enforcement of laws against environmental contamination and the inadequate approval process that neglects to examine, for example, the toxic interactions between the chemicals as they are released together into our air, water and soil.
