Tinseltown May Upend Debate Over PFAS Chemicals (Podcast)

Nov. 21, 2019, 11:01 AM

PFAS isn’t exactly a household acronym, but that may change with the release of “Dark Waters,” a film about the corporate lawyer who was among the first to realize the problem posed by these chemicals.

On this episode of our Parts Per Billion podcast, we speak with attorney Rob Bilott—whose work inspired the movie—about the release of “Dark Waters,” how it could change the debate over PFAS, and what it’s like watching a movie star (Mark Ruffalo) reenact scenes from his own life.
