The world's most toxic site

On socialistworker.org Joshua Frank, co-author with Jeffrey St. Clair of Red State Rebels: Tales of Grassroots Resistance in the Heartland, looks at the legacy of the Hanford B nuclear reactor.

A quote from the article: "I CERTAINLY agree we ought not disregard the B Reactor's true legacy. Beyond the lofty rhetoric of scientific achievements and marvelous engineering feats lives a story our government would rather not recall. It's a tale of death and environmental destruction, the remnants of which are with us to this day."
