Libby: The Continuing Fallout
 (No. 1201)
It has been almost two years since Gov. Martz used Montana's one and only "silver bullet" superfund option for the cleanup of asbestos-contaminated soil in Libby's yards, school grounds and businesses. The deadly tremolite asbestos from the bankrupt W.R. Grace vermiculite mine has claimed the lives of former workers and members of their families and other residents of the town. Gene Brodeur brings us up to date on EPA cleanup efforts, and talks with Libby residents who are dealing with the often fatal and as yet untreatable side effects of asbestos poisoning.
