4:33 am
they not, many people are familiar with what those ache is and what, what they do or you know, what phosphate mining even is very few people that know what mosaic is actually about. they portray themselves to do something and be something that they're really not about. i have a pull up on facebook. 96 percent is again the phosphate mine in desoto county. but we can't allow mosaic to come into the soda fountain. you know, maybe they'll actually learn that our health is more important than money. on the day, the board of county commissioners voted for the reason. oh, the citizens showed up to have their voices heard and protests. like most of them out ranking jose policy did change from agriculture. tier, a tier 2 phosphate mon fioma, the zoning history of 400083 point 40 plus or minus acres,

4:35 am
camera pollen live at the plant. i did a crew that the new whales mosaic plant scrambling to stop the contaminated and radioactive water that's seeping into the florida aquifer. they bought a lot of land, but it's agricultural land. it's not mining land, so they have to get it changed to raise own it. and the people in the county have said no. meet molly bowen, grandmother of 10, an accidental water activists. molly jumped into this in 2016 after that famous mosaic sinkhole had contaminated her son's drinking water and well water. molly spent a lot of time in the field doing water testing and then mapping the out falls and
4:36 am
all the different waterways that mosaic uses to release their toxins. and having grown up in the area, molly is familiar with all the ways the waters connect and she keeps track of all the different how false mosaic have in the waters. they blended to drawing a direct line from a zag outfalls down to the charlotte harbor. and out to the going well, he's been able to prove over and over with these tests with their excessive levels of contaminants in the water. she hopes this will lead to more water testing and conversations about have a zak and operate more say january 1st, 2019. there was some kind of an explosion that the 4 corners mine iraqi explanation given was that it was a giant flock of birds which we did not buy. so we figured we go take a look at the water ourselves and go get our very 1st water soon. blair looked really weird like he was frozen or had some sort of top layer on since all of the
4:37 am
watershed is connected, we wanted to get water samples from all the different areas to get an idea of what mosaic was putting in the local waters, the local rivers and to see if we could trace it back to a single source. mm . mm mm mm. this, we just pulled out waterway right now, mine, we're going to do a quick phosphate test. over boz urban towards rober, bolts. not very, very smooth or strong. one to go to work with all the stickers, with home warranty student humor. more hormones do, own, below, or mars to goal is dark. this goes,

care taking a break from testing water to try to call mosaic again. ah ah. ringback ah. ringback you reach your voicemail. i'm sorry, i missed you. please. record your message after the tone when you are finished. hang up or press pound for more options. hi gary, this is eric crown. i was trying to give you a call. i am working on a documentary about phosphate mining and would love the opportunity to be able to speak with you k. we're gonna try the phosphate expert for mosaic,
4:45 am
towards the phosphate which is sponsored by music or industrial research. and i was wondering if i could speak to dr. berkey i oh. ringback hi, dr. berkey. now this is, this is gary. go hi, gary, i'm, i'm sorry i'm, but maybe i got misdirected, i'm or one in mining and carrying awful death and do this with burns, or they'll just cut down all the trees. this field has been cleared and open so the mind can expand into how the problem is. you start to displace a bunch of animals when you remove their habitats,
4:46 am
including the endangered animals, the eastern indigo snake, the gopher, tortoise, the stork, and the box turtle. mm. the law states that if they run into anything of archaeological importance, like an indian burial ground, they have to stop digging immediately contact the proper authorities and let them take over the airing and according to long time mosaic and play. that's just something you don't to. don't know it's worth a few sources to deals ah, servers to you. so distribute. so bird go for all you know for you to be able to walk you through to your groups. installed the washer global process because both of these, you blog molder bumper to pull up
4:47 am

4:48 am
and what's left is basically radioactive. uranium late graph, which was it uses to sponsor things like the bustle funds of the air, kidney martin, the user to make roads. and none of the citizens have any idea and how radioactive the ground after seeing so many people get cancer's sicknesses in the area. the citizens of de soto decided to get geiger counters and tests for themselves to find out how radioactive areas really are. and they were shot to find out. they've often been exposed to fukushima level radiation. you can buy iodine pills for radiation the and actually by you know, a radiation rescue kit that's going to have iodine tablets in it. i know this is cold war stuff, this enough stuff we should be living with in today's world. and although we're
4:49 am
exposed to lots of different types of radiation, we're talking about ionizing radiation, which is on the more dangerous side here of the scale. and if the ionizing radiation will be measuring through the geiger counters, the natural background is around point $22.00. and we are registering around one, which is about the levels in that light orange here for fukushima. only instead of fukushima, our sample is being taken at a playground with reject rock from mosaic. so at the level we just saw, according to the radiation network, if you were to live here for over 3 months, your chances of getting cancer would increase to one in a 1000. ah mosaic is committed to conducting business in a manner that protects the health and safety of our employees, contractors, customers, and communities. we are relentless in our pursuit of an injury, free work place where i was a structural iron worker and barney,

4:52 am
that again. but cancer are live, unfair labor failure and stuff like that. most of our younger guys and then where those major badges and when it got full, i got laid out so they would put the dose of meter mad underneath your head. that when you get radiation, it's going to get filled up. and instead of helping the guys they just go with a while when he got hired and nobody was temporary logic, ju many years daddy's was like too many a is saying mm a
4:53 am
