After reading the first-hand account from EPA site and also watching the videos, please write a short reaction paper (1-2 pages) about the Love Canal tragedy. I would like for you to focus on two issues:

1) The failure of government to properly regulate both prior to and during the disaster.

2) The effect of the measures taken to clean up the mess. What lessons were learned?
