NH #371: Nuclear Trainwreck: Radwaste Transport Dangers Exposed! – Donna Gilmore of San Onofre Safety

Nuclear Trainwreck? – San Onofre high level radioactive waste
lurks just above and behind Pacific Ocean high tide mark –
and proposed rail transport is a “mobile Chernobyl” disaster just waiting to happen.

This Week’s Featured Interview:

  • “Nuclear trainwreck” – Let’s hope that’s a metaphor, not a future reality!  Donna Gilmore is  founder and head of San Onofre Safety, a public resource for factual information about the serious safety issues with southern California’s San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and the tons of highly radioactive nuclear waste stored smack up against the Pacific Ocean. Her findings on official assumptions about transport of nuclear waste from San Onofre and other nuclear reactors, especially via rail, are truly outrageous.  Come listen and get outraged.

Numnutz of the Week (for Outstanding Nuclear Boneheadedness):

When the Department of Energy (DOE) has community demands for radiation testing of plutonium contamination at Rocky Flats near Boulder, Colorado, DOE takes $400K of taxpayer money to hire a PR firm?!?  What – if you did your job in the first place, you wouldn’t have to hire a spin doctor to make you look better than you are!
