Is government doing anything to control a toxic chemical? Scorecard tells you if a chemical is covered by federal environmental laws, or by California state laws (because California has unusually effective and innovative laws such as Proposition 65). It also tells you what chemicals are major environmental hazards because they damage the ozone layer, contribute to global warming, or persist in the environment.
