No More Nuclear Waste @ Hanford & The End of Nuclear

Hanford No Place for Nuclear Waste, Article from May of 2010 in the Spokesman Review:


To protect the Columbia River and
public health, Washington state
should join in requiring the Department of Energy to:
• Remove the wastes from leaky
single-shell tanks as fast as possible
– and not delay emptying tanks until
• Clean up, not cap and cover up,
contamination spreading from tank
leaks and discharges.
• Clean up, not cover up, the 40
miles of unlined burial grounds
• Withdraw the decisions to use
Hanford as a national radioactive
waste dump.
