Radioactive Contamination found in your kid’s school –
the letter no parent ever wants to receive.



This Week’s Featured Interviews:

  • Radioactive contamination found at Ohio School – where is it from and what does it mean? Interview with Vina Colley; she is, in her own words, “a Whistleblower, a sick worker from the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion plant in Piketon, Ohio.” Vina is a Co-Founder of National Nuclear Workers for Justice (NNWJ) and Portsmouth/Piketon Resident for Environmental Safety and Security, or  (PRESS).  For more than 30 years, she has pushed the government to take responsibility for the radiological contamination that came from the Uranium Enrichment site, and execute The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA), which was enacted in October 2000 to compensate workers for their health issues caused by working within DOE’s nuclear facilities. She provides history and insights into the radiation contamination at the Zahn’s Corner Middle School in Piketon, Ohio – only two miles from the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion plant.
  • BREAKING: Energy Secretary Rick Perry orders the last 4+ years of radiation monitoring around Portsmouth site to be released to the public.
  • Kevin Kamps, nuclear waste watchdog for Beyond Nuclear, spoke at the May 13, 2019 Congressional Briefing on Nuclear Waste that was held in Washington, DC. In this excerpt from his presentation, he speaks against the proposed Consolidated “Interim” Storage site in New Mexico.

Numnutz of the Week (for Outstanding Nuclear Boneheadedness):

Our tax dollars are paying for lying PR propaganda printouts from the US Department of Energy on the despicable “NICE Futures Initiative” – “NICE” standing for “Nuclear Innovation Clean Energy” – GAK! Lies, lies, lies!
