Poison Train of East Palestine: Pedro Gonzalez Examines Politics Behind Norfolk Southern Disaster w/ Dr. Kelly Victory – Ask Dr. Drew
Pedro Gonzalez exposes how political forces ignored looming threats that led to the Norfolk Southern 32N disaster in Feb 2023 in East Palestine, Ohio, and the safety breakdowns that contributed to the derailment and hazardous chemical spill.
“The cars that derailed carried hazardous chemicals, including vinyl chloride, a toxic and flammable chemical used to make polyvinyl chloride or PVC that is extremely carcinogenic, ” Gonzalez tweeted. “Five of the cars that derailed contained a combined 115,580 gallons of vinyl chloride.”

I interviewed East Palestine locals, contacted a controversial firm that Norfolk Southern hired to conduct testing, and examined how corporate lobbying and politics connect to put American communities on a collision course with disaster. https://t.co/hcdsvZ0ScX— Pedro L.
