A new study by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) tested drinking water in dozens of cities across America found concentrations of PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) contaminants in water supplies at all but one out of 44 locations tested. PFAS are also called ‘forever chemicals’ because many do not break down in the environment, instead building up in the blood and organs over time. EWG scientists say they believe it is likely all major US water supplies contain PFAS. The EPA issued a non-enforceable advisory for PFOA and PFOS in drinking water of 70 ppt [parts per trillion], but independent studies have recommended a safe level for PFAS in drinking water of 1 ppt. EWG recommends in-home water filtration systems to remove possible fluorinated contaminants.
Drinking water across the United States is heavily contaminated with fluorinated ‘forever chemicals’ at levels far higher than previously thought, according to a new study.
A wide variety of mainstream news outlets have cited a new report by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) which found concentrations of PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) contaminants in water supplies at all but one out of 44 locations tested.
“New laboratory tests commissioned by EWG have for the first time found the toxic fluorinated chemicals known as PFAS in the drinking water of dozens of U.S. cities, including major metropolitan areas,” the report states.
“The results confirm that the number of Americans exposed to PFAS from contaminated tap water has been dramatically underestimated by previous studies, both from the Environmental Protection Agency and EWG’s own research.”
Approximately one-third of the entire population of the globe now is under some sort of a lockdown order. A few are able to work at home, but the vast majority are forcibly unemployed. Many small businesses will not survive the folly of their leaders, and the number of homeless will drastically rise.
Projection for COVID-19 infections is about one one-thousands as severe as for the common flu. [1-billion infections of flu compared to approximately one-million infections of COVID-16.] In other words, the common flu is a thousand times more dangerous than COVID-19.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot threatened fines and arrest for people who defy her stay-at-home order. She said that outdoors is only for brief respite, not long long exposure. The mandate that carries a $500 fine, if violated once. Repeat offenders will be arrested. This is the face of martial law.
The web site for CovidActNow, that is being used by media, state governors, local leaders, and county judges as a reason to quarantine, says: “this [computer] model is designed to drive fast action, not predict the future.” [In other words, the predictions are propaganda, not science.]
Scientist and Imperial College author Neil Ferguson several weeks ago warned that the coronavirus would kill 500,000 people in the United Kingdom. He now says that, if all goes as expected, the death toll will be 20,000 people or fewer. Ferguson has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not expecting to die.
National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow announced the total coronavirus relief package will come to around $6-trillion, with $2-trillion in “direct assistance” to Main Street and “roughly $4-trillion in Federal Reserve lending power” for Wall Street.
These experts’ concerns include: the fact that the destruction of the economy will cause more deaths than the coronavirus, there are no scientific standards for testing for the presence of the virus, most deaths are only in the elderly population, and more!
The mayor said that water and power would be turned off for nonessential businesses to force them to close. He called the businesses that have yet to close “irresponsible and selfish.” While small business owners are fighting for economic survival, the Mayor enjoys a handsome salary with no interruptions or reductions.
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell cut interest rates to zero, launched unlimited quantitative easing (money creation), has committed to buy $1-trillion in Treasury Bonds and mortgage-backed securities, and municipal bonds. All this adds up to a death warrant for the American economy.
India’s economy has come to a screeching halt as residents in 75 districts across the country, including in major cities, such as the capital New Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore have been forced into mandatory quarantine by the government until March 31.
Prince Charles openly called for transforming the world’s economic model at a “revolutionary” pace, re-engineering the business model to change industries, markets and employment for the the green agenda. The changes would affect every business sector imaginable.

By JW Williams In this video report, Gary Gileno argues that, if California really did have a water shortage, why does it invite unlimited migrants? The California water shortage is greatly exaggerated for political purposes,
California passed a law requiring local water districts to monitor the levels of chemicals, known as PFOA and PFOS, that are used in grease and stain-resistant non-stick coatings like food paper packaging, cookware, furniture and carpet, and sometimes used in firefighting foams.
