2 key questions here:
1) why has the DOE been investigated for the “many and multiple ‘mistakes'” that have been made – and do any of the DOE staff ever see the inside of a courtroom or better JAIL! THESE MISSHIPMENTS ARE NO FUCKIN’ ACCIDENT!! Where is the investigation and prosecutions and 2) It is not only the DOE – but Oil companies mixradioactive sludge into gasoline so we breath it everday from every car, bus, truck and train!
Then the Industrial Manufacturers are mixing radioactive sludge in to the ‘steel’ they make cars, busses and trucks out of; its in the plastic bumpers; its in the carpet, the leather/vinyl, the plastic and the steel! THEN – they’re (JAPAN especially) growing and producing vegetables, fruits and meats that eat contaminated grain/food and shipping it into the US Food Distribution system WITH PERMISSION of the USDA! So — ultimately you are eating, bathing, washing your clothes, it is in you dishes, plates, spoons, forks, pots and pans, your clothes, shoes, blankets, sheets can all be contaminated — but since NONE OF YOU bought that geiger counter I told you to buy years ago YOU WILL NEVER KNOW.. all something they have been doing all along but NOW it is ‘with permission of deregulated regulators and government agencies!! Don’t take my word for this shit.. LOOK IT UP! I DID!
“In the spring of 1991, residents of Baton Rouge, LA, were shocked to read in their local newspaper that radioactive waste from the Department of Energy nuclear weapons complex at Oak Ridge, TN, had been burned at a local incinerator. This was not an isolated incident. Between 1981 and 1991, the Department of Energy site sent thousands of tons of hazardous waste to treatment, storage, and disposal facilities not just in Louisiana but across the country. It now appears that radioactive material was present in that waste.”
“An independent report of the Oak Ridge waste-management practices called “Type-B,” prepared by the DOE Oak Ridge office, revealed that waste analysis sheets prepared by Martin Marietta Energy Systems, the contractor operating the Y-12 plant on the Oak Ridge Reservation, had been altered. “White-out” had been used to delete evidence of enriched uranium in the waste material. Furthermore, a senior manager at Rollins Environmental Services, the recipient of this waste, was aware of the practice, yet Rollins continued to receive waste shipments from Oak Ridge.” (US Congressman George Miller, 1992)
This case involved the US DOE contractors, and subcontractors, which were public companies trading on the US stock exchange, and about which something could be known due to government requirements. Yet, this still happened. Now we have three private companies, about which little is known or can be known, involved, or trying to be involved, in the dismantlement of nuclear power stations: Holtec (Krishna Pal Singh), Energy Solutions (Doug Kimmelman), and J.F. Lehman & Co. (new owners of WCS). Furthermore, Holtec has, in other contexts, refused to comply with a US government subpoena about its nuclear waste cans and has been disbarred from the TVA for apparent bribery, and routinely uses “proprietary” as an excuse to hide information. Giving “exemptions” to Holtec appears to be a favorite NRC activity. A tax break given to Holtec by the State of New Jersey is currently under investigation. The Plymouth Massachusetts Area League of Women voters has written the NRC chair stating that “Both the Town of Plymouth and the Commonwealth have legitimate concerns about the financial accountability of the prospective licensee, its finances and its plans for safety, security, monitoring and emergency response during the period of decommissioning.” See more here: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2019/08/21/plymouth-league-of-women-voters-sends-letter-of-protest-to-nrc-re-plans-to-approve-transfer-of-pilgrim-nuclear-power-station-to-holtec-inc/
