    Who Pays for the First $250 Million Kullman Koolant Lawsuit?

    German Agency, KBA, Investigates & Finds One Crashed Model Explodes Into Toxic Fireball With DuPont's Kullman Koolant Inside!

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Konichiwa,

    Readers, the KBA, Germany's Federal Motor Transport Authority has recommended further study and testing in the aftermath of the shocking independent testing by Daimler engineers of the potentially dangerous Kullman Koolant for car A/C (DuPont Honeywell HFO-1234yf). The KBA tested four models, the Mercedes B-class, Hyundai i30, Subaru Impreza, and Opel Mokka, and found one crashed model did burst into a Kullman Koolant-ignited fireball emitting extremely toxic hydrogen fluoride gas. The model was kept secret.

    Let's posit speculatively the following case: At congested Exit 8 on the New Jersey Turnpike, a tractor trailer rams a new S.U.V into the guard rail. The four occupants survive the initial impact, air bags deploying. But within seconds, Kullman Koolant leaking upon a hot engine part explodes into a hydrogen fluoride fireball. A young cardiologist and his wife, a professor of French literature at Rutgers, and their two children, daughter age eight and son, age five perish from the extremely toxic gas. Compounding the tragedy, a state trooper arriving seconds later also is lethally gassed, and three fire-fighters suffer permanent disabilities.

    Multiple wrongful death and tort actions follow in the courts, with an ultimate liability of $250 million. Who pays?

    * DuPont , Honeywell makers of the Kullman Koolant in China?
    * Chinese manufacturing partners in the Peoples Republic of China?
    * Separate parts supplier or fabricator of A/C system?
    * Automobile-maker, say Ford, or GM or Toyota?
    * Automobile dealer?

    * All of the above?

    As an investor, shareholder in DD, F, GM, we believe the potential contingent liability surrounding the Kullman Koolant could conceivably be massive, and will certainly impact the value of DuPont Performance Chemicals to any prospective buyer.
