Columbia, PA should be on the list.  The town has been on fire underground for over 50 years, and is uninhabitable.

They forgot Butte, MT and Anaconda, MT (and all the surrounding small communities).  Arsenic poisoned land, toxic water tables, and The Berkeley Pit (water is so toxic if a bird lands in it - which has happened - it WILL die).  Among the highest cancer rates in the nation.  The list can (and does) go on.  And I'm willing to bet the mining companies that have been/are involved in this area pay as much per year to keep people quiet as our country allocates to the defense budget.

I wonder if Algore's zinc mine in TN is a superfund site too?

I see no mention of any towns in New Jersey.  Could it be that the government is continuing to cover up the presence of toxic waste sites there?  In 1980, there were a total of 32 superfund sites in NJ.  16 of them were in Jackson Twp.  However, the governor's response was to transport additional toxic waste to a wildlife refuge in southern NJ.

they all had one thing in common, greed was at fault. did the greedy clean it up no we the tax payers did and we still do, every time these greedy rich people do this and they know there doing it thank our leaders for helping the greedy for the waste land, there is  ways to do thinking we need done but the greedy don't look at the right way they look at bigger profits and that is it. in there mind we the people can be replaced by the dozens like sheep

These idiots in places like coal country and North East PA let the oil gas and coal companies do whatever they want while polluting there rivers lakes and water supplies and then the fuel companies even charge them a higher price living in this filth how stupid can you be and they just keep voting in republicans that just keep taking the bribes and letting the pollution flow.

Haha, Rocky Flats isn't turning into a wildlife refuge, they're building houses on it, and stupid rich people from out of state are buying 'em up like crazy.

They forgot about the fraq mining towns. I bet the oil companies paid lots of $$$ to make them keep quiet. They have been so many water supplies poisoned by this process. It still blows my mind that the lobbyist slid the approval in a mining technique outlawed in many countries because of the negative ecological impact it has. The safe water drinking act should be revamped to disallow fracture mining techniques. Not approve of it because of legislators being bribed by oil companies.

We left Picher Oklahoma many years ago ,my birthplace and there was no work .Dad was a miner and he traveled to other states to find work to support his growing family .It's so sad to see Picher now as a ghost town . Too much mining under the town .

I have no idea why I keep MSN as a homepage, but it's a great source of bizarre journalism. It is a constant barrage of misinformation, and a great reminder that untrustworthy media still continues to survive.

Walter Russel discovered the Science behind the Atom Bomb about 13 years before Einstien. He sent materials to every University globally and wrote Atomic Sucide? In the 60 and 70's we put together a non toxic solution to the pollution of sewage, water, and air. Congress and State Legislators and Big Polluters wanted more Research & Development money and secured futures for retirement dollar rather than really doing something.

 

In my book, I point fingers to a nuclear waste pond in OK that is certified yearly by the county to operate. Bi products of this atomic waste is made into animal food and shipped across America.

Deformities for animals and high cancer risk of children exits within 150 miles of this pond.

Walter Russell's books can be purchased online The University of Science and Philosophy.

 

The President's Panel On Cancer in 2010 reports that millions of more Americans will get Cancer.

And are children are especially at risk because of the accumulation of toxins in their bodies from the daily bombardment. Our bodies cannot detoxify fast enough. Fingers also point to the high fat, sugar, white flour, and processed foods diet (SAD). Lives are at stake. It is time to pay attention and to take ACTION. Ask the political candidates for answers before electing them. Take local ACTION.

More oxygenated water and green chlorophyll, green tea and blueberries or pomegranate, broccoli, warm lemon water, and parsley added to the diet is helpful. Hawaiian Spirulina, Kombu, and Wakame seaweeds are good sources. Cleansing the body and proliferating new cells is the idea.

There are pictures on the Web of Nagasaki and Hiroshima today some 66 years after being wiped off the map with an Atomic bomb and a Nuclear bomb.    Very pretty and exciting cities.   These 10 sites listed should have included the city of Detroit and other inner cities.

 

Today our large cities are like a fairy ring.   Dead on the inside and spreading outwards to use up the nutrients found in the suburbs.

Also to Life Boat 02, by the time EPA was brought in to the Libby issue, many people were already dieing.  It had nothing to do with their funding.  It was the timing.

There is also another book out about the Libby Asbestos story.  It's called An Air That Kills.  I worked on this site as well as one in Denver, Colorado called Western Minerals.  W.R. Grace had an effect on the entire world.  Their product was shipped world wide.Western Minerals was just a subsidiary of W.R. Grace...a delivery site that then transported the product to other areas of the U.S.  W. R. Grace is responsible for a lot of deaths.

There is a great book by Andrea Peacock called Wasting Libby, it tells the (real) story of what happened in that small Montana town. If you are inclined to think that corporate greed runs this country, this will pretty much button it up for you. Trust the government, ha, that's a laugh. The justice system? Corporate lawyers can tie things up so long there's no one left alive to testify, or the company shuts down and there's no money left to give the people or their families that they affected and killed after years of suffering.

Let's not forget that the Twin Towers in NY were full of asbestos, surely the affects of Grace & Co. and their political partnerings will be long lasting in our country.

If the EPA had been properly funded, instead of hand cuffed.  These stories, would not exist.
