Just Watched Toxic Hot Seat

    Lazy sunday afternoon, just watched Toxic Hot Seat, the HBO doco on the use of toxic flame retardants in the household.

    It seems from late 2013 onwards, the whole movement away from toxic chemicals is gathering momentum.

    Lobbyists are suggesting that the removal of all chemicals from materials and a change to fire safety regulations should be the solution. From the doco, it seems to make sense towards what they are saying.

    The Chemical companies are pushing the line that the retardancy agents do still provide more time for safely removing humans from fire situations.

    I have this strong feeling it's going to be an interesting 2015....

    With these two positions held by the lobbyists and chemical companies....Could you imagine if there was a product... That happened to be non toxic.... That provided flame retardancy to a high standard... And was commercially viable?

    Sounds like it would become the middleman and become the solution to the problem.

    I can see why Nick Clark moved permanently to Washington.
