4:30 pm
ah, ah, there we go to florida, is beaches and disney world. in reality, one afford his biggest industries and best kept secrets is phosphate money. but for every one ton of usable phosphate, there's 5 times of radioactive rock left behind. florida is still radioactive, that the fountain of youth is closed due to radioactivity. people that work in the mine and live in the mine were getting accelerated cancer. and in 2011 cancer became the leading cause of death in florida. we noticed a study today by the world health organization that said that long term exposure to radiation, even at low levels, can dramatically increase the risk of dying from cancer. the primer use for
4:31 pm
phosphate is fertilized, but it's byproduct creek cancer in the biggest player in his $85000000000.00 industry is mosaic. this fortune 500 company owns over 300000 acres, which is roughly the size of los angeles. they already have mines in 4 counties and are trying to get into a fit. the mines were 24 hours a day and they mind $16000000.00 tons of phosphate rock a year in order to separate the prostate rock from radioactive elements like iranian mosaic, uses over 70000000 gallons of ground water a day which they take from the rivers used to process the phosphate and then return back to the rivers filled with cancer causing toxins that lead to cancer clusters all in this cancer causing environmental pollution is permeated by the state. mosaic is self regulated, so they only have to turn in reports for a balanced ph level which allow them to dump harmful chemicals and toxins into the
4:32 pm
water. without many people noticing, missouri believes that the solution to pollution is dilution, so they run their water through these outfalls, dump it back into the local creek and rivers which eventually worked its way out to the ocean. and although none of the state or local governments were paying any attention when mosaic didn't realize somebody was in 2015, the e p a find mosaic over $2000000000.00 for the mishandling of hazardous waste and louisiana and florida. just last year mosaic agreed to pay nearly killed $1000000000.00 to settle a federal lawsuit, the agreement covering $60000000000.00 pounds of hazardous waste. now the company agreed to clean up operations at 6 florida site and 2 in louisiana. and claiming mosaic was improperly storing in disposing of chemicals used to make fertilizers. meantime the e. p. a called the agreement, a major victory for clean water. the music has never addressed these health
4:33 pm
concerns. instead they use p r to try to look like good neighbors. they sponsor huge music festivals, put $9000000.00 into just photos arena. give money to the local police departments, put on charities and the holidays, and can't food drives. they even sponsor wildlife events. and as one of the largest landowners and florida their political influence is huge. and mosaic routinely sends representatives out to local elementary schools to helped educate the children on the benefits of mining mosaic, preparing today students for tomorrow's jobs. welcome to arcadia, florida, halfway between orlando in tampa. arcadia sits in dawn valley and this sleepy agricultural town has become ground 0 for the battle with mosaic. ah, and although their history
4:34 pm
a phosphate mining is tied with to soda county, there has not been phosphate mind here for over a 100 years. mosaic bought up a bunch of smaller companies and inherited the land that they owned, which was down for agriculture. so currently mosaic is trying to read zone 14000 acre me from agriculture to phosphate mining. but after watching friends and families get sick and other counties, the residents decided to say no, i started a facebook group against phosphate, modern soto county. no, 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 mining in desoto county.
4:35 pm
but we can't allow mosaic to come into de soto count. you know, maybe they'll actually learn that our help is more important than money. on the day, the board of county commissioners voted for the reason all the citizens showed up to have their voices heard and protests. like most of them are ranking allows, we'll see to change from agriculture, tier, a tier 2 phosphate mon fioma, the zoning history of the 1000. a $3.00 plus or minus acres, land motion for now. hm. so county florida, 1st county, i believe in history actually say no to mosaic rezoning bron
4:36 pm
oh and ah, oh, $11.00 incredible video tonight. a massive thing call has opened at the museum new wells facility in mo, very good evening and thanks for joining us on monday. ryan, this is your tonight. there are reports of millions of gallons of contaminated water now flowing into the florida aquifer. nbc actually news reporter cameron, poland live at the plant. i did, i cruise at the new wales 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,
4:37 pm
so they have to get it changed to raise own it. and the people in the county have it said no. meet molly vowing grandmother of tan, an accidental water activist molly jumped into this in 2016 after that famous mosaic st. call had contaminated her son's drinking water and well water. mm. molly spent a lot of time in the field doing water tests and then mapping the out falls and all the different waterways that mosaic uses to release your toxins. and having grown up in the area, molly is familiar with the all the ways the waters connect. and she keeps track of all the different outfalls mosaic have in the waters. they blend into drawing a direct line from a zag outfalls down to the charlotte harbor. and out to the goal, molly's been able to prove over and over with these tests to their excessive levels
4:38 pm
of contaminants in the water. she helps this will lead to more water testing and conversations about homesick and operate more say january 1st, 2019. there was some kind of an explosion that the 4 corners my hierarchy. the 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. the water looked really weird like it was frozen, or had some sort of top layer on since all of the 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
4:39 pm
a waterway right near mine. we're going to do a quick phosphate test. rainbows, urban torture over boats. not very, very smooth berg are strong. we to go to our football with home, and there were more interested humor more to own over all. morrison to go in. it is dark. this goes, this is at least 4. if not, it's even darker than the darkest color. i think ah, soon you know it's way. ready over for and that's the one that how the oil and then we drove over to another county about
4:40 pm
40 minutes away. and we wanted to check out a place called johnson creek, which is an outfall right underneath of the wind gate might be all we had just seen was called a fluid. and a fluid is a proprietary mix of multiple oils that the mining company uses. and one of the signs of that discharge is heavy thumb. mm. if you look there's, there's little bubbles in the bubbles don't disappear, they turn into the phone. you can see the thumb collecting on the rocks right there . mm. it looks like paradise. if you don't look too close, but have to track it a little bit. you can see the hi may. so i mean it's disgusting. it smells, smell is horrible. there's just no colors. different exposure, like that's newer, this longest,
4:41 pm
k, e. no, i mean that's been there for weeks that's in there for days. ah and ah, a, this isn't a flow is coming down directly from the mines and headed directly into the my aca, which is a state preserve. and also giant river for ah christmas. the traditional yuletide holiday. this year i'm making this traditional special christmas guide me christmas tolerance

4:49 pm
a lot of the locals that have been experiencing cancer and accelerated cancer rates . all have concerns about the amount of radioactive leftover. right here is a great example. this is a mind that is no longer active, but they just leave it like that scarred up for every one tiny phosphate that's usable for them. they have 5 times of radioactively windham, and what's left is basically radioactive. uranium late graph, which was it uses to sponsor things like the puzzle funds of the air kidney martin, use it 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 levels. radiation
4:50 pm
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 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 it's 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 levels we just saw, according to the radiation network, if you were to live here for over 3 months,
