To repeat, this is the worst environmental homeowner disaster in US history. We think 100,000's of US homes will need to be rebuilt, we will need a massive federal emergency relief bill, to help these totally innocent US citizens, & we need the President & the US Congress to get to work on this now. This is much, much worse than Hurricane Katrina.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 15, 2009
Americas Watchdog & its Homeowners Consumer Center have been leading in the national, and state by state investigations of toxic Chinese drywall for over three months. The group has been calling for President Obama, the US Congress, and the US EPA to get involved in what the group considers to be the absolute worst homeowner environmental disaster in US history. The culprit-toxic Chinese drywall that is corroding copper, other metals and making people really sick. To date, aside from Senator Nelson & Congressman Wexler, the group is not aware of any White House, US Congressional, or federal agency response to this huge national disaster. The group expects to find well over 150,000 new or remodeled homes in Florida, 30,000+ in Mississippi & Louisianna, 5000+ in Virginia, 10,000+ in Texas, and toxic drywall in significant quantities, in dozens of other states.
The group says, "People are getting sick in these houses, this is a national disaster; the President & Congressional delegations need to get to Florida immediately, so we can get emergency funding to help hundreds of thousands of homeowners get their homes fixed, and determine if these homeowners should even be staying in their homes right now, given the possible dire health issues. For more information contact the Homeowners Consumer Center at 866-714-6466 or contact the group via their web site at http://HomeownersConsumerCenter.com."
Americas Watchdog is saying, "What happens if in five years we all find out exposure to toxic Chinese drywall gives people cancer, or kills them?" The group believes the 100,000's of new or remodeled US homes with toxic Chinese drywall could be lethal to the families, who live in them. As a result, "Americas Watchdog is strongly encouraging all homeowners in Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, or Texas to call the White House & request President Obama come visit their homes, so he can see for himself. The White House phone number is 202-456-1414."
"Americas Watchdog would also like to invite Katie Couric of CBS, Brian Williams of NBC, Charles Gibson of ABC, Anderson Cooper of CNN, & Geraldo Rivera of Fox, to come to Fort Myers, or Cape Coral, Florida & see for yourself, why we are so terrified about this toxic Chinese drywall situation, & why the federal response thus far has been a joke."
The group says, "To repeat, this is the worst environmental homeowner disaster in US history. We think 100,000's of US homes will need to be rebuilt, we will need a massive federal emergency relief bill, to help these totally innocent US citizens, & we need the President & the US Congress to get to work on this now. This is much, much worse than Hurricane Katrina."
While their have been numerous federal & state class actions filed, Americas Watchdog is concerned these could take four or five years to run their coarse, and in the meantime, US homeowners could be dying from exposure to imported Chinese toxic drywall. According to the group, "We are not even sure if all the class actions, or lawsuits will give the homeowners enough money to safely rebuild their homes. This is why we need a federal rescue plan for these totally innocent US homeowners right now. We also need real science from the US Federal Government to tell us if these houses are even safe to live in, & we need it now."
If you live in Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, Texas or any other state, and you live in a subdivision or condominium where the toxic Chinese drywall has been discovered, please share this press release with your friends, and neighbors, and encourage them to call the White House as well. "The toxic imported Chinese drywall is literally a national tragedy of epic proportions, and our President, the US Congress, and the federal government need to get involved now. Your phone call will help."

PS -- From the President of Americas Watchdog. "Am I the perfect messenger for the toxic & potentially lethal imported Chinese drywall issue? No. But when I looked around for a show of hands, I was the only one, at this moment in time."
