Gerry Pollet of Heart of America NW joins Abe to discuss the latest on the Hanford nuclear site
Hosted by Abe Proctor. Joe Uris is on vacation.

Now, the U.S Department of Energy has proposed a "cleanup plan" that abandons large amounts of plutonium and other toxins at the site, and is even proposing using Hanford as a nationwide toxics disposal site.
