Federal consolidated interim storage facilities for commercial highly radioactive wastes
February 10 @ 8:00 am - March 4 @ 3:00 pm
The U.S. Department of Energy is accepting public comments on its latest ploy to open highly radioactive waste consolidated interim storage facilities, under the ruse of “consent-based siting.” A week ago, Beyond Nuclear provided answers to DOE’s own list of questions, which can be used to fashion your own comments for submission. Now, we have prepared additional sample comments, covering numerous very significant aspects of the issue DOE did not even ask about. This week’s round of sample comments is concise (see below), with additional background provided, depending on how much time you have. Please help defend health, safety, security, the environment, and environmental justice, by pushing back against DOE’s latest bid to open dangerous, de facto permanent surface storage, parking lot dumps.
