The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Yucca Mountain not safe for nuclear waste, not safe to transport wastes through Nevada

Las Vegas Sun 11th Feb 2018, “It’s not like we’re asking you to accept nuclear bomb testing
again.” This is a statement I have heard several times over the past 30
years, both from people working for the Department of Energy and the
commercial nuclear industry, as they tried to convince us that we should
approve of a Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump.

My response was something like, “Well we know Yucca Mountain is not a safe place to contain waste,
and transporting it through the state to get there is risky and a killer
for our economy. And you are right; we would not accept nuclear bombs being
exploded here again.”

Welcome to 2018 and President Donald Trump’s
plans for Nevada. We know there is enthusiasm in Congress and the
administration for a restart of dormant Yucca Mountain licensing, and now
we read in the latest issue of Time magazine that a plan is afoot to begin
building and testing atomic bombs here.
