Just watched COSMOS from this past Sunday. It's an episode about Clair Cameron Patterson, the man who determined the age of the earth but there was an equally important story to tell.
COSMOS also shows how he fought the oil industry against their hired "scientist" to prove that lead is toxic and the oil and gas industry was contaminating every man, woman and child.
It took him 20 years but he finally won. I wonder how many people died in the time it took to fight the interests who were just looking to save money for their corporations vs virtually murdering millions of people.
