Asbestos: Bad for People

Written by

This strange crate-box-plywood container sat on the Mudd 8 with an onerous warning affixed: DANGER ASBESTOS.  Just, like, hold your breath or something while you walk by.

Isn’t asbestos bad for you?  And didn’t scientists figure that out?  Let’s just hope they’re talking about asbestos removal.  Once this thing is out of the hallway we can all breathe a sigh of relief.

  2. Hmm . . .  

    This looks like a ploy concocted by CC students to take down SEAS. Well then if it is war you want, it's war you will get!

    My guess? Removal of asbestos floor tiles.

  4. The sixth floor  

    of Altschul Hall (Barnard's campus) is completely closed off for renovation. The signs in the elevators just say that it's closed, but if you walk past the door to the sixth floor in the stairwell, the sign mentions danger asbestos.

    I've never been in Mudd. I feel like it is the most mysterious building on campus.

    The boarding up looks as though this is part of asbestos removal. Asbestos has been linked to lung cancer, mesothelioma and many other respiratory diseases. It is most likely being removed to protect students, faculty and staff from these dangers. Regards, TM http://www.mesorc.com/
