      The only people they care about defending are the rich and powerful. Aka, the ones that don’t ever have to worry about their health.

        I mean… do the rich and powerful not breathe air and drink water? At some point this has to matter even to them, right??

          Don’t be silly, the air you and me breath is beneath them they dont live with the rest of us. The 0.5% have their own communities and sometimes islands. I bet the water they have is as clean as it gets and on top of that there is a water purification station in the second basement and multiple gardens to take care of o2 dispensing plants.

      Gov is in sexual relations with DuPont. They can’t do anything since DuPont is the top and gov is the bottom

    DoD doesnt give a flying fuck about soldiers health.

    Health ramifactions from this shit wont manifest until they are out of service and fed up with Tricare to the point of not using it for when the shit hits the fan.

    Just look at all the Camp Lejuene shit being revealed recently

    The DoD not giving two shits about the health of their soldiers, can’t find a better pair.

    Unfortunately DoD is right. PFAS are terrible things, but they’re used everywhere (including consumer goods at an astonishing rate) because they’re really effective. Once there are good alternatives, yes let’s ban them forever, but until then we’d all notice their absence in our goods in a big bad way.

        Now burning the wood from the boat is really effective at keeping us warm but until an alternative is found we will keep using the boat that we are all in to get through this cold patch of ocean.

        Actually fuck no, it’d be, “we gotta keep using the fire to keep us entertained since we are all bored here in the ocean”
