Gerry Pollet of Heart of America NW joins Abe to discuss the latest on the Hanford nuclear site

 Hosted by Abe Proctor.  Joe Uris is on vacation.

 

Since its birth during the Manhattan Project, the Hanford Nuclear Reservation has left a toxic legacy in its wake, from displaced populations to groundwater contamination to radiation in the Columbia River. Now, the U.S Department of Energy has proposed a "cleanup plan" that abandons large amounts of plutonium and other toxins at the site, and is even proposing using Hanford as a nationwide toxics disposal site.

Gerry Pollet of Heart of America Northwest joins Abe to discuss the latest on the Hanford situation, as well as how you can push back against the poisoning of our region at two upcoming meetings.
