Compensation for nuclear waste fallout

The other day in class I recommended the book Justice Downwing by Howard Ball which tells the story of the claims by citizens living downwind of the Nevada Testing Site in Nevada in the 1950s. Today, what a coincidence!, the PopTort Blog has a story about the residents of Apollo and Parks Township Pennsylvania who were just awarded compensation for injuries caused by radioactive contamination from nuclear power plant and its “clean up.” Full story here.
