PFAS - the Bureaucracy and Hierarchy of Decision-Makers
SEE NO EVIL HEAR NO EVIL SPEAK NO EVIL
Exasperated comments from PFAS impacted farmers when the greatest threat of exposure comes from ingestion of PFAS contaminated food, water, soil and air, “how can we avoid it when we work in the dust every day. It’s our workplace. What do EPA expect - wash our lungs out.”
As for checking ingredients to avoid products containing PFAS, there are no labelling and no disclosures so people don’t know they are being exposed to PFAS when, how and where.
While the functions and duties of EPA under PART 12.2 of the Act appear to be arrogantly IGNORED BY ALL maybe section 356(2)(c) could be better utilised by the people,
VicEPA are doing a really bad job of covering up the coverup.
The full truth and transparency about PFAS levels in our environment and their forever expanding movement around defence bases, airports, ESSO gas plant in Gippsland, wastewater plant's biosolid stockpiles all over Australia, etc would really stuff up the averages. Keeping the truth from the people is political. Someone in VicEPA is complicit with that decision.
