NM Nuclear Garbage Dump Approved by NRC Behind Covid Smokescreen
New Mexico – so-called “interim” storage site for highly radioactive nuclear waste given go-ahead by Nuclear Regulatory Commission – and the fight against it continues.Kevin Kamps is the radioactive waste watchdog for Beyond Nuclear, where he specializes in high-level waste management and transportation; new and existing reactors; decommissioning; Congress watch; climate change; and federal subsidies. He’s been involved in the nuclear waste battle for decades now, as you’ll hear from the breadth, depth and specificity of his information. We spoke on Monday, April 27, 2020.

👉🏽 Tell your NY elected officials to support S6893/A7208 and stop 🛑 reckless radioactive dumping ☢️ into the Hudson River.
Holtec International, the firm responsible for decommissioning the Indian Point nuclear power plant, has stated that it will resume discharging radioactive wastewater into the Hudson River. New legislation introduced (S6893/A7208) by state Senator Pete Harckharm and Assemblymember Dana Levenberg, with the support of a growing list of co-sponsors, will put a stop to any planned discharge into the Hudson River.
The contaminated wastewater must be securely stored on the Indian Point site while methods to isolate it are evaluated. It’s time to draw the line against using the Hudson as a dumping ground for nuclear waste including tritium, a radioactive form of hydrogen present in the wastewater. Ingestion of tritium is linked to cancer, and children and pregnant women are most vulnerable.
Join the groundswell of public voices objecting to Holtec’s discharges and take a stand to protect the Hudson River and local communities.
