Putin's declaration yesterday that "those who try to blackmail us with nuclear weapons should know that the weathervane can turn and point towards them," the threat of a nuclear catastrophe looms again. Here in Portland, Oregon, we live downstream from the Hanford Nuclear site. Next year, the Vit Plant, which is designed to turn plutonium waste into glass to keep it inert, is scheduled to go online.

Host Jacqueline Keeler will examine how the colonial origin story brought us here.
