(MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA) - Salem-News.com news editor, Tim King, is now writing as a weekly columnist for Press TV. His first article examines the plight of Google employees in California who work, many unknowingly, on heavily contaminated land once occupied by computer chip manufacturers who used the toxic chemical TCE (trichloroethylene) for years, with large amounts of the chemical spilling and leaching into groundwater in the surrounding area.

The "Googleplex" in Mountain View, California is an EPA "Superfund Site". Google chose contaminated land for their flagship location. They are keeping the deadly matter on the down low.

Making matters worse, is the fact that the Googleplex is adjacent to another environmental nightmare, the now closed Moffett Field air base, which is also listed as a heavily contaminated EPA Superfund Site.
