LOS ALAMOS, N.M. -- Residents downwind of a wildfire that is threatening the nation's premier nuclear-weapons laboratory are worried about the potential of a radioactive smoke plume if the flames reach thousands of barrels of waste stored in above-ground tents.

"If it gets to this contamination, it's over -- not just for Los Alamos, but for Santa Fe and all of us in between," said Mai Ting, a resident who lives in the valley below the desert mesas that are home to the Los Alamos National Laboratory.


Nuclear waste stored in above ground TENTS? What genius thought this was a good idea?



Top lab officials and fire managers said they're confident the flames won't reach key buildings or areas where radioactive waste is stored above-ground


Not that they would ever inform the general public if it did. If all else fails, maybe we can learn from the Japanese and stuff any leaks with newspaper and diapers. We all saw how well that worked for them.


I can only hope that this does not become another nuclear disaster and that the residents in and around the area are safe. When will we as a species ever learn?
