This is the followup to 2006 film “9/11 Dust and Deceit” about the health effects from toxic dust of 9/11. The film seeks to show solutions and asks how those affected can heal from 9/11. The premier was three days in NYC as part of the "Pause || Press Play: Art Film and Spoken Word Collaborative."
Thank you to all who helped make this possible!
This disturbing film by Penny
Little “911: Dust and Deceit at the WTC” exposes
the environmental disaster of 9/11 through interviews with scientists,
waste management specialists, government workers, volunteers, first responders,the
heros and victims of the dust which permeated the air after 911.Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
Todd Whitman announced to New Yorkers, shortly after the 911
attacks on the World Trade Towers that “. .I am glad to reassure the people of New York and Washington DC that their air safe to breathe” and that we “. . .need not be concerned about environmental issues as [we] return to [our] homes and workplaces” At
that time, she didn't have the information to support those assurances
or make recommendations. The White House itself, through its
Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), actually manipulated
the statements being released by the EPA so as to soft-pedal
Because of these misleading
statements, and because the EPA bucked its legal responsibility
and left the problem to the City, the public was put at risk. This is true even though the EPA reversed course in May of 2002 and initiated an extremely limited and flawed voluntary cleanup. There is evidence of a coverup, and a media blackout. Thousands
of people are ill., many have died.
Jon Stewart has Sanjay Gupta on his show talking about correlation of Cancer and 9/11 and how the Zagroda Bill does not cover it.
