Summary
The tremolite asbestos-tainted vermiculite from Zonolite Mountain has spread its lethal legacy well beyond Montana and the town of Libby, where it was mined and milled for decades: over the years, 236 cities in 42 states received billions of pounds of it to be processed into a range of consumer products. This ABC News program focuses on trouble spots in Michigan, New Jersey, and Colorado. With an estimated 15 to 30 million homes containing the deadly stuff in the form of attic insulation-and remediation costs that can run into the tens of thousands of dollars per household-this is a health and financial crisis of no small magnitude.
