Nuclear tank leaking
in Washington state

Telegraph [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/23/2013 6:11:19 AM

Six underground radioactive waste tanks at the nation's most contaminated nuclear site are leaking, Washington state governor Jay Inslee said on Friday. Mr Inslee made the announcement after meeting with federal officials in Washington DC. Last week it was revealed that one of the 177 tanks at south-central Washington´s Hanford Nuclear Reservation was leaking liquids. Mr Inslee called the latest news "disturbing." The tanks, which already are long past their intended 20-year life span, hold millions of gallons of a highly radioactive stew left from decades of plutonium production for nuclear weapons. The US Department of Energy said earlier that liquid levels were decreasing in one of the tanks at the site.

On top of everything else,this will become another condition for the left to exploit. They´ve been wanting to shut down nuclear plants for decades and regardless if this poses a real threat or not,they´ll be pulling their hair out within a week or so from now.

Yep, just like the millions killed at Three Mile Island.

If only we had a fully built repository for nuclear waste built on a geologically stable site located far from major population centers.

Based on the rhetoric, the wailing, gnashing of teeth, and gripping dramatic performances from the left, there´s nothing her to be concerned about.

The problem isn´t the nuclear plant and it´s not a new problem. My family lives just across the Columbia River from there and this has been an ongoing problem as long as I can remember. They have been working on cleaning the site up for years. Unfortunately, during the war when reasearch into the Bomb was number 1, no one thought of the consequences of just burying all of the waste or throwing it all into tanks together. No one really knows what is buried or exactly what is in the tanks. They have had to occasionally "burp" the tanks for years, just to keep them from exploding. My point is that the only thing new about this is the hysteria.

IMHO this temporary storage exists because of the failure to use yucca mountain in nevada. Thanks to democrats the gooberment has wasted billions of dollars and put the columbia river at risk. What a bunch of ignorant clowns.

Harry Reid has been fighting the commonsense of storing this waste in Yucca Mtn for as long as he has been in Congress. And any disaster that comes from this situation should bury him 10 feet deep.

When the Dems tell you something won´t work, it´s best to listen to them because they will sabotage it to death.

If they tell you something will work you can equally expect to be blamed for it´s failure.

Commies destroy everything.

That´s half the fun.

There was a proposal to have a storage location in Yucca Mountain in Nevada, but Democrat Harry Reid squashed that Bush idea.

Democrats don´t want oil, coal, or nuclear power.

They don´t have viable alternatives.

I blame fracking.

[James Taranto will blame George W.Bush.]

Seriously -- the only reason there´s an issue with the Hanford site is that the gov´t didn´t care, and no one was accountable.

FTA: Democratic Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon said earlier this week that he shares their concerns about the integrity of the tanks, but that he wants more scientific information to determine it´s the correct way to spend scarce money.

Translation: The Dems would rather have a problem to posture with than a problem solved.

And yes, there´s Harry Reid. He made sure: a. the money already spent on Yucca Mountain would have no productive result [getting Harry re-elected isn´t a "productive result" in my mind]; and b. the Dems would still have a problem to raise campaign money on, and bash Republicans with.

More American ambassadors have been killed while serving Obama/Clinton than have died in Nuclear accidents in the USA.

One of Europe´s most powerful media tycoons has accused Google of seeking to create a digital ´superstate´ outside the control of national regulators and privacy laws. Mathias Döpfner, head of the giant German multi-media company Axel Springer, says Wir haben Angst vor Google: "We are afraid of Google." [Snip] Writing an open letter to Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google, in the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Döpfner said: "Google not only knows where we are going in our cars, but also what we do while we’re driving.

One of US president Barack Obama´s leading campaign strategists has been recruited by Labour to play a key role in Ed Miliband´s bid for Downing Street in next year´s general election. David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama´s presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour´s general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced. His appointment was been hailed by Labour as a major coup, and ´´seriously bad news for the Conservatives´´, at a time when Mr Miliband has been under fire from sections of his own party for his campaign tactics.

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity´s ´links

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

Enjoying a free lunch? No such

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
