Gee. "Brokovich" Was All About the Money

I'm just shocked.

From 1996 to 2008, 196 cancers were identified among residents of the census tract that includes Hinkley — a slightly lower number than the 224 cancers that would have been expected given its demographic characteristics, said epidemiologist John Morgan, who conducted the California Cancer Registry survey.

PG&E paid $338 million, regardless.

The fact remains that PG&E improperly handled chemicals known to cause cancer and other illnesses and lied to their neighbors about it. Just because the number of cases was "unremarkable" does not mean that some were not caused by the toxic chemicals.
