'Significant Design Vulnerabilities' Plauge Massive Nuclear Waste Site, Leaked Internal Review Reveals

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

A leaked internal review of the nation's largest nuclear clean-up site found hundreds of "significant design vulnerabilities" and begs questions about the Energy Department's transparency, a watchdog group says.

The Hanford Nuclear Reservation near Richland, Washington houses radioactive waste from the production of plutonium for nuclear weapons, and the decades-long cleanup effort has been costly and plagued by leaking underground nuclear waste storage tanks.

The conservative's solution:

"Like GMO's and pesticides, global warming and Wall Street bribes, nuclear waste is good for you".

Thanks to the author for a great article that I haven't seen anywhere else yet. Go, Common Dreams!!

So it's safe to assume that for every leaked report of urgency like this one, One hundred others are hidden from the public.

Until, KABOOM!

Santa Susanna, Flint, Michigan (Fermi), Switzerland, Shetterfield England, Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, Fukushima, WIPP, and soon 104 leaking creaking, 40-year-old deathtraps screaming into the night at 120 percent of their designed output, just in the US alone.

Tick Tock....

Nuclear is Nuts!

D.O.E. head, President Obama's recent pick to replace Steven Chu, Nobel Laureate in Molecular Physics, was and still is Ernest Moniz, Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics. Both from corporate academia!

They know and we Americans (will never be told the straight skinny, YET MUST BE) should know that: "safe & storage & nuclear waste" cannot physically co-exist in reality without total molecular disruption of existence itself. No amount of money can turn back the clock on what has been set in motion, or in stone, if you will.

There is no way out from an impending "doomsday" scenario that eventually will unleash an unalterable mutation to all life. Medium and longterm radiation from radionuclide dust, made by man, aimed at Planet Earth, demands an airing. This fact must be dealt with - no procrastinations, no BS. This ain't no "Reality Theater".

Q: Is a ☢ NEWS LEAK worse than a ☢ LEAK?

A: Both are bad and makes one wonder when the other will occur!

We are now in a situation where information about important topics is being withheld because one group or another thinks we don't need to know!

Since most of MSM is owned by 6 Big Corp.'s it is no wonder that US Taxpayers are being just about nothing about what is really happening today!

Fukushima proved that Nature can destroy any land based nuclear reactor, any place anytime 24/7, yet the NRC and our Leaders are confident that they know better. In the worse case they will just do what the Japanese are doing; just BOW to everyone, while releasing slanted PR reports that say that they have everything under control, even when they know it is not true.

The USA cannot afford a Trillion Dollar Eco-Disaster like Fukushima, but those responsible for preventing that to happen are being limited by Congress from doing their job!
