Give it another 20 years and thats what will be advertised as the most exotic places, anything to try and boost up the area.

No doubt whats underground will not be mentioned, just like when they built the Olympic statium here..."radioactive waste? Huh, that was years ago, anyway, here, have a glowing cocktail on us."

There's a place northwest of Denver where you can take a picture that includes the Rocky Flats nuclear plant, the Rocky Mountain Arsenal ("world's most-polluted square mile") and the Denver metro skyline, all in the same photo.

There's also Pitcher, Oklahoma, a town that is down to it's last half-dozen residents and will soon be destroyed altogether. There's nothing that can be done to decontaminate the place, so it's just being abandoned. The world needs to start cleaning up its act.

UK Govt did a study of cancer hot spots back in the 90s but it was immediately hushed up and shoved to the back of some archive never to see the light of day. Chatting to someone involved in the study at the time I found a large part of my home town was built on the highly toxic clinker resulting from nickel and chrome extraction processes. And the mines beneath the town had been pumped full of industrial waste. The Govt realised that if that report were to ever be made public whole areas of the UK would empty and a lot of important people would be staring out at the world from behind bars.

When you see the average life of a working male is 54 years old in your home town....well, its time to move on! I did
