520    "Once home to the United States's largest plutonium 
       production site, the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in 
       Washington state is laced with 56 million gallons of 
       radioactive waste. The threat of an explosive accident at 
       Hanford is all too real--an event that could be more 
       catastrophic than Chernobyl. The EPA designated Hanford 
       the most toxic place in America; it is also the most 
       expensive environmental clean-up job the world has ever 
       seen, with a $677 billion price tag that keeps growing. 
       Huge underground tanks, well past their life expectancy 
       and full of boiling radioactive gunk, are leaking, 
       infecting groundwater supplies and threatening the 
       Columbia River. Whistleblowers, worried that the worst is 
       ahead, are now speaking out, begging to be heard and 
       hoping their pleas help bring attention to the dire 
       situation at Hanford. Aside from a few feisty community 
       groups and handful of Indigenous activists, there is very 
       little public scrutiny of the clean-up process, which is 
       managed by the Department of Energy and carried out by 
       contractors with shoddy track records, like Bechtel. In 
       the context of renewed support for atomic power as a means
       of combating climate change, Atomic Days provides a much-
       needed refutation of the myths of nuclear technology--from
       weapons to electricity--and shines a spotlight on the 
       ravages of Hanford and its threat to communities, workers 
       and the global environment."--|cBack cover.
