Those kids are the ones who will one day be without potable (or even bathable)water or arable land, and probably have cancer - wherever in WV(or PA, TX, WY, CO, OH..) they settle. This is pure shortsighted, irresponsible, corruption-enabled greed. This state has been nothing but a hotbed of industrial corporate corruption for over a century. Mussolini had another term (Fascism) for it, so did Bastiat (Plunder) before him. This COUNTRY is in fct dooned, but WV is possibly the worst example. NONE of the touted "benefits" of this corruption is statistically, economically, nor socially observably true. Not one. Not for the individual noncorrupt working class West Virginians who strangely, in their gullible toleration of it, still comprise MOST of the population.

So what are these kids learning? This seems like a very small amount of money for the resources and risk this community is now exposed many cancer treatments does that come to? And that is what toxic chemicals mean...sick people and bad water and air.
