Description

The Deseret News looks at Utah's toxic legacy -- at the beginning of the Cold War the U.S. government chose the state and others in the "remote West" for a weapons testing program that "sacrificed the lives of American citizens. From uranium mining to chemical and biological weapons, from the military to the industrial complex built to support the Cold War, the region became ground zero for an environmental assualt that poisoned the air, water and land for millions who now live there, oblivious to the toxic legacy that continues to contaminate."
