Thanks, Kaitlin. I’m really glad they are taking this on. There’s a long history of using farm land for dumping hazardous waste with the argument that it’s good for the soil…. Important minerals, etc. “Soil Amendments” they call them. Toxic ash has even been added to fertilizer. When I lived in Maine, ash scrubbed from a concrete mfg plant was being sold as “lime” for use on soil. I’m sure it contained dioxins as well as other hazardous materials.

And for Ted in particular, a new case come to light that is directly dealing with the overlap between extreme energy, toxic dumping, and Agriculture. Just reading this now, perhaps worth exploring a little bit. HEAL Utah does a ton of work around nuclear as well.
