NH #250: “Chernobyl in a Can” – More Dry Cask Dangers w/Donna Gilmore

This Week’s Featured Interview:

  • Donna Gilmore, head of SanOnofreSafety.org, offers a chilling update on the problems of short term nuclear waste storage, calling the on-site dry storage canisters approved by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission “Chernobyl in a Can.”

Numnutz of the Week:

Russia risks doubling the reactor lifespan of the Kola nuclear power plant in Murmansk to 60 years so it can produce energy the area doesn’t need.  Why?  Because the station worked out an “investment plan” because it would be “too expensive to decommission it.”  What part of “Chernobyl” do they not understand?
