Case Files: Karen Silkwood

Updated: Mar 16



 

Karen Silkwood, Cimarron Oklahoma Plutonium Plant worker who mysteriously died before blowing the whistle on Kerr-McGee.


When it comes to conspiracies, we've got you covered. Let's dive into 1970's Oklahoma and explore the Kerr-McGee facility, radioactivity, plutonium, nuclear disasters, and the hero/activist Karen Silkwood. Will you come to your own conclusions? Conspiracy Theorists say "yes." Also, like, really explicit content, bro.


Between 1970 and 1975 there were 574 reported exposures to plutonium at the Cimarron plant. Less than 100 were reported by Kerr-McGee at the time of exposure. (Production would have been halted for weeks to fix the issue/leaks at the time.)
