Erin Brockovich to Delve Into Her New Book on Our National Water Crisis via Zoom (12/16)
Erin Brockovich, author of SUPERMAN’S NOT COMING: Our National Water Crisis and What We the People Can Do About It (Pantheon), will be in conversation with Building Brave founder Mary Burke at a virtual event hosted by the Boswell Book Company via Zoom on Wednesday, December 16 at 7:00 pm (ET).
From environmental activist, renowned crusader, champion fighter, maverick Erin Brockovich, comes a book that looks at our present situation with water and shows us how we can each take action to make changes in our cities, towns, and villages, before it is too late.
In Brockovich’s SUPERMAN’S NOT COMING, she makes clear why we are in the trouble we’re in, and how, in large and practical ways, we each can take actions to bring about change.
She shows us what’s at stake, and writes of the fraudulent science that disguises these issues, along with cancer clusters not being reported. She writes of the saga of PG&E that continues to this day, and of the communities and people she has worked with who have helped to make an impact. She writes of the water operator in Poughkeepsie, New York, who responded to his customers’ concerns and changed his system to create some of the safest water in the country; of 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; and about how we can protect our right to clean water by fighting for better enforcement of the laws, new legislation, and better regulations. She cannot fight all battles for all people and gives us the tools to take actions ourselves, have our voices heard, and know that steps are being taken to make sure our water is safe to drink and use.
