The Department of Energy (DOE) is committing treason.
They are playing with American's minds by forcing us to accept nuclear waste in our midst. They are usurping our rights as citizens, they are appropriating weapons of mass destruction, and they are targeting US with those weapons.
The DOE is a criminal organization. No doubt about it.
They are playing a high-stakes game with Russia which, if it results in just 1% of the nuclear arsenal of each country being used, would effectively permanently destroy both countries. Several other countries are involved in this high-stakes game (China, Britain, France, etc...) but America and Russia are the bully players.
The cost of the "game"? Obama plans to put another trillion dollars into it. And he's the "peace" president! In two years, who knows what a Republican might spend? Two trillion? Three?
And to think that it's spent under the name of "stewardship"! Keeping the weapons cache safe. Keeping it current.
But nuclear weapons are useless. In nearly 3/4s of a century we've never found a use for them, not since the first two senseless attacks on Japan (senseless because Japan was already practically beaten, senseless because they did not attack soldiers, they attacked civilians (including some American POWs), senseless because they did not consider the real consequences of the radiation, believing that any too-high doses would blow away in the wind, or that anyone close enough to be harmed by the gamma radiation would be killed by falling bricks and other debris and pressure waves anyway (but not first, I might note), senseless because Japan could have been shown the power of the bombs without bombing dense concentrations of civilians (but I guess that was the point of the strategist’s ruse: to pretend that EVERY city in Japan would soon suffer the same fate, and it worked. In reality, of course, the biggest secret about The Bomb was that we had used up the entire arsenal with the three explosions (Trinity, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki) and if the war had continued, it would have surely been over before we could use atomic weapons again).
Senseless because we then had to send our own troops into harm's way -- into Hiroshima and Nagasaki to help with the clean-up. One survivor of that operation told me had had close to 200 skin operations on his face, starting soon afterwards. 200 sets of stitches, how's that sound? Because they weren't given ANY protective equipment. Not gloves or face-masks, the bare minimum for cleaning up after a radioactive contamination.
The DOE demands that we keep the nuclear waste here for what may be eternity, because if there is an accident, it will be virtually impossible to clean up. Areas around Chernobyl and Fukushima are not going to be open to human habitation for tens of thousands of years -- and only then because the poisons, active down to the last atom, have spread out amongst the rest of the biosphere to kill, maim, disfigure and deform there as well.
By demanding that each nuclear reactor site keep the waste created there for at least 60 to 300 years (maybe longer), which is also by far the most dangerous time: The waste is extremely hot, both thermally and radioactively.
For thousands of years, spent nuclear fuel is fully capable of having just as horrific an accident at Chernobyl or Fukushima -- and even far worse (all four of those meltdowns could have been far worse).
These are the dirty secrets of the nuclear industry. That there never will be a good spent fuel plan, that the local reactors are to keep the waste after the plant has closed, and that ACCIDENTS WILL HAPPEN.
They happen all the time, and it's just a matter of time until some area of America is destroyed, just like Chernobyl and Fukushima was, and our "waste confidence" (as the NRC calls the current lack of a plan for the spent nuclear fuel) drops down to where it belongs: NONE.
Forcing nuclear accidents on innocent Americans is treason, but that's exactly what the DOE is doing.
