Japanese Nuclear Reactor Crisis Implications for Northwest

Categories:
program date: 
Wed, 03/16/2011

 Host Lisa Loving speaks with Gerry Pollet, Executive Director of Heart of America Northwest.

The Japanese reactor crisis has important implications for Northwest:  

The explosion Sunday night at Reactor 3 involved a reactor using Plutonium fuel. Heart of America Northwest has recently exposed secret plans by Energy Northwest, formerly WPPSS, to have its Hanford reactor be first in US to experiment using Plutonium fuel with higher risks of accident and more radiation release. 

 

Ironically, Heart of America Northwest was working last week to prepare a lawsuit over Energy Northwest's failure to provide all public records on its secret plan to use Plutonium fuel beginning in 2013, with a deadline to file suit this coming week.

A partial meltdown and release from a reactor with Plutonium fuel would be far more catastrophic due to the Plutonium fuel than at the adjoining Reactor 1 (which is the reactor whose secondary containment building blew up).
