In one of my recent e mails I stated that:
The recently released book by Joseph Mangano “Radioactive Baby Teeth: The Cancer link” a study in which Salem County and Delaware participated, was called by the Industry “Junk Science” I then immediately sent reports from several European countries which, after extensive studies came to the same conclusion.
Slowly but surely, site by site, the truth will emerge:
As the Nuclear Regulatory Commission begins a public comment period on the permit application for a new reactor at the DTE Energy’s Fermi complex in Monroe, a public health expert is warning that a rise in cancer rates in Monroe County appears to be linked to operations at the existing 1,130 megawatt nuclear react
FROM THE WEAPONS PRODUCTION
DO WE HAVE TO WAIT 50 YEARS BEFORE THE NATION KNOWS THAT NUCLEAR POWER KILLS?
WHAT WILL THE COST IN TERMS OF DOLLARS AND HUMAN LIFE BE WHEN THE LAST NUCLEAT POWER PLANT IS SHUT FOR GOOD
WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO CLEAN UP THE MESS LEFT BEHIND FROM THE WEAPONS PRODUCTION
…..Some of the significant work ahead:
-Some 53 million gallons of radioactive and chemical waste - enough to cover 123 football fields, including end zones, a foot deep - stews in those underground tanks, some of which are known to have leaked and threaten the Columbia River. The tanks must be emptied and the waste treated.
-The plant where that waste will be converted to a stable glass form must be completed and tested. HAS NOT EVEN BE BUITThe U.S. Department of Energy now says it will begin operating in 2019. (encasement in glass has long been rejected by the nuclear industry as too expensive)
-More old nuclear reactors need to be decommissioned and cocooned, and ancillary buildings at the site need to be decontaminated and torn down.
HANFORD IS NOT THE ONLY SITE
. Other major sites are in Kentucky, Tennessee, South Carolina, New Mexico, Nevada, and Idaho as well as other places around the United States.
MORE “STIMULIS” REQUESTS FOR THE FUTURE? YOU BET !!!
Whether the efforts to get a slice of the stimulus package succeeds is yet to be seen.
TIME TO RETHINK, TIME TO STOP PRODUCING THESE LITERALLY EVERLASTINFG POISONS !!!!!
