An Air That Still Kills is the alarming and still-unfolding story of the deadliest environmental disaster in the United States. The catastrophe began in Libby, Montana, where hundreds of people died and thousands were sickened from inhaling asbestos fibers from a vermiculite mine. But mine owner W.R. Grace spread the danger across North America by shipping the mineral to far-flung processing plants. The lethal Libby vermiculite still lurks in as many as 50 million homes, businesses and schools. But few people know the danger that hides in their attics and walls, because regulators have repeatedly failed to warn the public effectively. No one is tracking how many people have died from asbestos contamination, or where, or how many more will die. The only certainty is that the toll will continue to rise. First authored by Andrew Schneider and David McCumber, this updated book includes frightening new disclosures by Schneider about the growing threat from Libby's uniquely potent form of asbestos. The latest studies by some of the nation’s foremost experts say that Libby asbestos - with even minimal exposure - can sicken and kill at rates thousands of times greater than previously thought. An Air That Still Kills is a haunting, meticulously reported account that will introduce you to the courageous miner’s daughter and the cowboy crooner who took on one of the nation’s most powerful corporations, and to the government team who first refused to believe the duo. That team now continues to risk careers by fighting bureaucrats to help prove the town’s residents right.
