It takes a story like this in the Guardian to properly illuminate the timelines involved when a community is poisoned.

The suit – filed on behalf of tens of thousands of people who lived, worked and went to school in Nitro after 1949 – claimed Monsanto spread toxic substances including dioxins, which have been linked to cancer, all over the town.

New Plymouth’s dioxin production run started and stopped around 12 years later than West Virginia, which would indicate a resolution for New Plymouth residents by 2025.
