My name is Fred Siegel and welcome to my website. I named this website after “Toxic Tommy” Kean the ex-governor of New Jersey back in the mid 1980’s. We used that nickname for him during a fight over hazardous waste disposal and it stuck. Over the years anyone who is in favor of poisoning people in the name of profits became known as a Toxic Tom.
For the last thirty years I have been involved in environmental issues and doing environmental site assessments for people exposing the hazards near where they live. In October 2020, I put all the knowledge I learned over those thirty years about environmental hazards into a book called quite appropriately: Environmental Hazards-Are You Exposed? It explains how to do your own environmental site assessment where you live.
Long ago I became fed up with corporations and the government dumping their waste into the water, air and ground in the name of profits. Politicians are useless as they usually are on the payroll of these corporations. Ex-politicians become consultants once they leave public service and help corporations continue their harmful ways. Only by empowering people with knowledge and the tools to fight back against polluters can they protect themselves.
