And this is not the first incident at Hartford , however it is stunning that the DOE are not taking evasive action or responsibility for the facility.

“Something did not go right”: Plutonium found outside of nuclear waste shipment — Traveled on public roads — “Unusual… radiation was in a place it shouldn’t be” (VIDEO) #Hanford

The Washington State Department of Health is investigating the discovery of radioactivity outside the protective packaging of a recent shipment from Hanford.

The shipment traveled a short distance from the Hanford site, down public roads [...]

Text Department of Energy (DOE) officials said they are not responsible for problems found at the contractor’s facility and are not responding to the incident. State Ecology officials say the case falls under the jurisdiction of the Department of Health. [...]

The watchdog group Hanford Challenge, which uncovered documents about the incident, told KING 5 it was a dangerous situation that put the public and workers at risk. [...] ace-it-shouldnt-be-video-hanford

This isn't a minor thing... given those symptoms.

good luck to those people living along the road that they used to transport it.

BTW, how in the hell does plutonium get shipped outside of the containment? Something is very wrong with this story.

What especially hit me as disturbing was how workers 10 miles away at another part of the facility were also affected at a later date.

Sources tell KING 5 that three additional employees got sick from ingesting fumes later on Tuesday. These WRPS employees were working in a different portion of the tank farm [...] about 8 to 10 miles from the AY-AZ farm. That location was also deemed a Vapor Control Zone and was evacuated.

What are we going to do? Are all the MRES the ammunition's being bought up be cause they know that we are just one quake away from nightmare situation nationwide?

The facilities continue to be operating at levels that are not only antiquated but at critical levels for even the slightest of safety.

Meanwhile safe shelters being black budgeted and all real commerce being sent off shore.

Have we learned Nothing?

Also the story submitted by the msm about the WIPP nuke waste storage leak, facility near Carlsbad NM is only the tip of the ice berg.

There may be a Washington connection as well.

The principal risks associated with nuclear power arise from health effects of radiation. This radiation consists of subatomic particles traveling at or near the velocity of light---186,000 miles per second. They can penetrate deep inside the human body where they can damage biological cells and thereby initiate a cancer. If they strike sex cells, they can cause genetic diseases in progeny.

The Dangerous Degradation Of The U.S. Nuclear Arsenal

While the days of the iconic SAC may be over, the nuclear triad is sure to become far more important over the next twenty years than it has been for the last twenty. The dramatic uncertainty that will result from an Iranian nuclear capability or a North Korean weapon, not to mention fears about a stronger nuclear China and Russia, will make strategic vulnerability at home once again at the forefront of security planning. Political leaders today must start thinking again how nuclear weapons fit into the larger mosaic of America’s security plans in an increasingly uncertain future.

It is NOT about energy, it is about POWER and global domination or damnation.

From your very informative link, a shocking read:

A report on the leak is expected sometime in April, but in the meantime energy officials have been pushed to seek out alternative storage options in states like Idaho, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington, all of which ship waste to the WIPP.

I would like to keep on top of what these findings are in April. What will be determined and suggested? Will the roads be filled with dangerous loads of toxic and radioactive materials as they move the waste from NM into other States across the Nation? Think they will have security forces leading the trucks or will they just be traveling along stopping at all the truck stops along the way exposing and endangering travelers as if they are hauling cabbages?

Logically extrapolate the radiation problems and waste disposal situation....the old and dying reactors, the chances of major leaks or worse,....... over the next 50 years....and they may as well start ww3 because the amount of loose materials will be similar anyways....
It akin to a human taking in one big dose of poison or injecting thousands of smaller amounts all over the body.....
Dead is just as dead.....

That is what I was thinking too, not only that but also having seen all of the "missing" nucs and such in the past several years what is to stop terrorist cells from sabotage and or hijacking of these deadly cargo trucks?

So anotherwards, nobody seems to be watching over the contractor who is shipping this stuff. Lost in the job definition of each agency.

So now, how much of this is going on in the country? The health department does not have the ability or resources to monitor this, it is not really their job. All this nuclear stuff should be under one agency, properly the department of energy.

The stories are just too much, this is the picture of a piece of salt that supposedly fell from a cavern wall which crushed a container in Carlsbad cavern and exposed a radioactive drum of waste.

Feb. 2014

A hunk of salt from the underground nuclear waste dump in Carlsbad, New Mexico. A piece of salt is believed to have fallen from a cavern ceiling and crushed drums of waste.

Not that the 13 workers and their families as well as their communities ("honey pick up milk on your way home from work") are important, it is the delay this represents in hiding the waste underground in vulnerable locations Nationwide...

And more broadly, it could be yet another setback for long-delayed plans to take nuclear waste from power plants and store it underground.

A simple google search seems to turn up pages and pages of these stories of exposure and deep concerns for our country. It is not msm attention getting, but it just might be time to start using our social networking skills to inform people of who they chose to vote for in the up coming elections. Ignorance causes cancer, tumors, genetic anomalies and worse...

Right you are, but the DOE takes no responsibility in any of the negative effects of the contaminants. The NR authorities are just anxious to keep gag orders on anything which will compromise the commerce side.

I was about ten or eleven years old when one of my family wrote the ballot argument that got the Rancho Seco plant near Sacramento shut down.

All I have to say is that when I was but a kid smart people were trying to warn the us. They were ignored and now we are going to see a significant increase in accidental exposures. A lot of that equipment has already lived longer than it was forecast to live.

This sounds like an example of pure stupidity though.,....

This must be really hard for you then, I mean just a single google search and there were more hits than I could read in a year. Sounds like you have experienced it first hand and then observed over decades as it was ignored all the while knowing that the equipment is and was becoming obsolete and corroded. What are your thoughts on this today and also your future projections?

I appreciate your post.

I think you will appreciate this link:

They also forget that a fragile pool laden with enough fuel rods to poison countless millions still sways 100 feet in the air at Fukushima. It remains horrifically vulnerable to seismic activity that could send it crashing down to a permanently contaminated earth.

Overall the industry's back is dangerously to the wall. We know it will squeeze every last cent from these dying reactors with less and less care for safety, especially since the federal government still insures them against the financial consequences of a major catastrophe. Every day they operate heightens the odds on something truly apocalyptic to follow in the wake of Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima.

Meanwhile they continue to spew out huge quantities of heat and waste. They divert precious capital from the proven green technologies that are now revolutionizing our energy economy in the only ways that can possibly save us from climate chaos.

This may yet become the first year in decades that the US has fewer than 100 operating commercial reactors. It will also be the biggest year worldwide for the booming Solartopian industries that are transforming how we get our energy, create our jobs and grow our economy.

Lets just make sure we win that transition before the next radioactive disaster does its worst.
