Significant environmental victory for Savannah River Site Watch in stopping import of high level nuclear waste from Germany

A decade-long effort to export a large volume of highly radioactive nuclear
waste from Germany to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site
(SRS) in South Carolina has been terminated, resulting in a significant
environmental victory.

The German company managing the waste at the Juelich
research site informed the public-interest group Savannah River Site Watch
(SRS Watch) that “the option to ship the aforementioned spent fuel has
indeed been terminated…” These definitive words bring an end to a
decade-long effort by DOE to import an unusual form of highly radioactive
spent fuel to SRS.

  1. Nuclear waste has not solution, so the best thing is to stop making it. Put in in a secure, geologically stable area away from ocean tides, storms and waterways, But the first step is to stop generating it. No more nuclear weapons and no nuclear power for electricity. Go to http://thesolutionsproject.org/ for the detailed plans for all 50 states to transition to renewable energy by 2030 without nuclear power or fossil fuels. We have the resources and the technology to reach that goal. All we lack is the political will to do so, because the nuclear and fossil fuel have all bought the votes of both Democrats and Republicans in the Congress and the State Houses.
