U.S. nuclear taxes — the true costs April 19, 2023

Robert Dodge, MD, PSR Board Member | The Hill

This neglect has impacted the health and wellbeing of our communities, resulting in water shortages, contamination, and toxic legacies, as is evident in the ongoing Jackson, Miss., and previous Flint, Mich., disasters and recent East Palestine, Ohio, train derailment. Events like these most often are occurring in economically disadvantaged communities and in communities of color.
