Description

The Texas Observer looks at a paradoxical effort of the state of Texas to sell a nuclear dump to the public school students of Sierra Blanca. The story details how the Texas Low-Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Authority has led students on tours of nuclear plants and dumps in order to convince them that "a nuclear waste dump in their town will be safe and beneficial." The report points to financial benefits received by various entities in Sierra Blanca as part of the promotional process for the projected waste dumpsite.
