The slipshod cleanup effort at the Hanford nuclear site in Washington state.

program date: 
Tue, 01/31/2012

  Right here in the Columbia Basin, we have our very own atomic wasteland. The Hanford nuclear site in Washington state is a festering Cold War sore, and the multibillion-dollar cleanup effort is underfunded and poorly run. Abe and Joe discuss a blockbuster article on the dubious attempt to remedy the sins of our fathers.

Interestingly, we have a Nuclear Power Plant Builder down in Corvallis.  Thier Marketing Literature says it's totally safe, but it doesn't address the issue of Nuclear Waste, or what to do with Spent Fuel.

There will be an Anti-Hanford Protest in Ridgeland, WA on April 15, 2012.
