Fast Disaster Case Studies Summer 2021

This case study report focuses on “worst case” scenarios for release of toxic chemicals. The report addresses a series of ten questions that draw out local details in a manner that encourages comparison with other places.

The research has been done quickly (within the constraints of a quarter-long undergraduate class & a six week Environmental Governance Internship) so is limited to and points to the need for further research and community engagement. The goal is to help build both a body of research on environmental injustice and a network of researchers ready to help conceptualize and implement next-generation environmental protections.
