Shocking
26 March 2018 | by TornadolaneSee all my reviews

We were shocked to find out that radioactive material from the Manhattan Project was dumped in and around St. Louis. This isn't your average documentary and it isn't just another environmental rant.

This documentary highlights the continuing plight of residents that surround this dump area. It also shows how an underground fire is encroaching on the buried radioactive material. Also shows that the buried material is hazardous on its own. The government does not seem to care. Republic Services (Bill Gates is a major shareholder) which owns the landfill does not care. The EPA doesa not care. Simply heartbreaking
