Nuclear Hotseat #143: WIPP Update #4 w/Don Hancock + New Food Safety Feature







Don Hancock of Southwest Research and Information Center again fills us in on the latest developments at the Waste Isolation Pilot Project (WIPP) in Carlsbad New Mexico following the Valentine’s Day radiation leak.  What exactly happened, how much leaked, how far has it traveled in which direction, what are the radiation levels — we run it all by Don and get as many anaswers as are possible.


NEW FEATURE: Food Safety and Nutrition for Immune Support and Detoxification with Kimberly Roberson, founder and director of Fukushima Fallout Awareness Network (FFAN).  She is a certified Diet Counselor and Nutrition Educator and author of Silence Deafening, Fukushima Fallout A Mother’s ResponseTo listen to her free March 23 teleconference on using zeolite for radiation protection, go to her website,

  2. From working in a cleanroom for many years, I understand the science behind keeping contamination under control. A cleanroom is under positive pressure in order to keep the contamination out. There are airlocks for entry and moving product, they only allow 1 door open at time. The air in the airlocks is filtered. Now look at WIPP..the contamination is in the ground but from what I know the air is pushed out of the mine…positive pressure…positive pressure needs to be on the CLEAN side not the contaminated side..this will never work, there will always be many points of failure, entryways, ducting leaks, just checking or changing filters…this place was not designed for high level waste, it will fail constantly, now, if the explosive gasses build up because of just sealing it up, the whole thing will go BOOM…
