i dont know what the person above is ranting and raving about calling this liberal propaganda. first of all, the films ends with everything fine after a accident with hazerdous waste on board. Not only did everything turn out okay, but as a result the person in the film who is in charge at the site, the face of the corporation is severely censure and could possible lose his job.
this film seems to be propaganda saying "hey! toxic waste aint so bad! you could store right in your back yard no problem! in fact, you can event shoot bebe guns at the canisters!"
when in reality that shit leaks all the time, when bad accidents happen, spills happen. from oil trucks to trucks containing toxic chemicals involved in hydraulic fracturing, and everything in between.
and those promises of a boom town out of an economical devastated community are empty. most of the jobs go to out of state workers, they are often temporary jobs peaking and declining after 7-10 years at best. and the bubble burst and the town is left in worse condition than they found it.
that is a true story that you can find on main streets across america. ask dimock , PA. as binghamton, NY.
