A great percentage of industries have the potential to impact the
environment in a negative manner. Some take the high road and do the
right thing regardless of its impact on their respective bottom lines.
Others take the low road and do anything they can get away with in order
to preserve their profit margin. I find it to be unfortunate that the
Nuclear Industry is such a sought-after target when our environmental
impact is so small when held up next to the majority of other
industries. The concentration seems to be on the extremely remote
possibility of a catastrophic event rather than the constant impact
others have due to day-to-day operation.

Well, I grew up in the 1950s and 1960s. Nuclear power
plants were not even planned for. Or even dreamed of.
What industries are you thinking of? "In the
nineteenth century, New Jersey cities led the nation
into the Industrial Revolution and . . ."
There were leather tanneries, smelters, oil and
chemical refineries, etc. You name a hazardous
chemical, we probably made or used it. The area has a
number of seaports.
Conviently, the Staten Island dump was close by.
Regarding nuclear we did have the nuclear armed Nike
Hercules missiles stationed in the southern part of
