Today in the nuclear weapons com­plex there are 10,500 con­t­a­m­i­nated sites, 2.3 mil­lion acres under DOE own­er­ship, and 120 mil­lion square feet of build­ings. The 1995 high base cost, esti­mated by the DOE Envi­ron­men­tal Man­age­ment pro­gram, to clean up the envi­ron­men­tal legacy is $350 bil­lion. That excludes the Nevada Test Site, Han­ford, the Savan­nah, Clinch rivers, and the Colum­bia river which are con­sid­ered to be “national sac­ri­fice zones” because the tech­nol­ogy does not exist to clean them up.

The cost to the pre­dom­i­nantly black com­mu­nity at Hunter’s Point Naval Ship­yard in San Fran­cisco is much greater. Navy ships brought back to Hunter’s Point ship­yard for decon­t­a­m­i­na­tion by the Navy, after the first atmos­pheric tests in the Pacific, led to the estab­lish­ment of the secret Naval Radi­o­log­i­cal Defense Lab (NRDL) which oper­ated at the ship­yard into the 1970’s. Secret exper­i­ments expos­ing ani­mals, plants, sol­diers, pris­on­ers, and local res­i­dents to radi­a­tion were con­ducted at the NRDL, where 550 civil­ian sci­en­tists worked with 65 Naval offi­cers to study the bio­log­i­cal effects of ion­iz­ing radi­a­tion
Even worse, the Radi­a­tion and Pub­lic Health Project (RPHP), while con­duct­ing stud­ies on infant mor­tal­ity and can­cer around nuclear power plants, dis­cov­ered that milk con­t­a­m­i­nated with radi­a­tion has been shipped into black inner city com­mu­ni­ties — a geno­ci­dal plan which explains why blacks have the high­est can­cer rates, infant mor­tal­ity, and asmtha (Gotham Gaz.May 2003) in the US, which has been blamed on poverty. The stud­ies using US govt. data on radi­a­tion in milk revealed that at the time of Cher­nobyl the Penn­syl­va­nia Milk Board had been selec­tively ship­ping radioac­tive con­t­a­m­i­nated milk from dairies around the Three Mile Island and Peach­bot­tom reac­tors into east­ern black inner city com­mu­ni­ties (see Jay Gould, Deadly Deceit: Low Level Radi­a­tion, High Level Coverup
