Whatever ill health effects one might expect would more than likely be disproportionately shouldered by the children of the community. Since there are established, safer, and cost effective roofing alternatives currently in common use, it seems unwise to continue with a large scale asphalt project that exposes the community to a long term exposure to these fumes.”
Originally from Wasilla, Alaska, I still live at The Arbors with my family. No matter how long it takes, I will continue to work towards legal restrictions on asphalt roofing tar in residential areas and on or near schools.
I am a graduate from CSU Sacramento with a Bachelor's Degree in English and have just finished my Master's Degree in Education from National University.
I love spending time with my daughter, Elise, my husband, John, our cuddly Beagle, and beta fish, Alex. I am also a volunteer for The American Lung Association, The Sierra Club, The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, and write blogs for Healthy Child Healthy World. I love to read and have just started writing movie scripts. You can read more about my scriptwriting at The Script Activist Blog. If you'd like to talk, don't hesitate to contact me.
