This is beyond fucked. Radioactive 'brine', a waste product of oil and gas wells, is sold as household products and spread on roads to de-ice and for dust control. This is the spreading of radioactive waste, which is treated as though it is not radioactive. Meanwhile, the workers have cancer and animals die.
“Legislators have laid out a careful set of exemptions that allow this industry to exist,” says Teresa Mills of the Buckeye Environmental Network, an Ohio community-organizing group. “There is no protection for citizens at all — nothing"
Workers are told the brine is 'as radioactive as a banana', if they are told anything at all.
Shell, Exxon, the EPA knew the waste is radioactive. They all all knew, same story. It was decided by the EPA that declaring the waste as hazardous would be too economically demanding.
Same story here in Australia it seems too. Reports comment on the lack of information available.
ps the radioactive waste is called NORM
