The Hanford Vitrification plant, has a DOE whistleblower case happening currently, as mentioned in OPB news very recently. I researched it online & it appears that the DOE/Bechtel safety review board is rushing to nullify these safety concerns, by having a vested interest review, done quickly to keep this nuclear waste project ontime, without really addressing the safety issues, which would delay start of construction of the project.
This story is not getting much press, yet this is the LARGEST CAPITAL PROJECT in the nation. A nuclear explosion would imperil us all & yet nobody in the government is taking this seriously enough. The whistleblower is having to do all the work himself. Time for the media to take this on, for publicity & public safety.
The nuclear energy & waste storage issue should be an ongoing issue for Think Out Loud, because it's in our territory of SW Washington.
Please follow the whistleblower story. This person is sacrificing his life & career for the issue & no media, save for a small tre-city outlet, is covering this story of importance to the nation & future energy policy.
