Pro-nuke Bipartisan Policy Center advocates for Mobile Chernobyls and high-level radioactive waste parking lot dumps

The revolving door between so-called "public servants" and nuclear power lobbying firms is spinning so fast, it could be connected to the electric grid and awarded billion dollar subsidies at ratepayer and taxpayers expense! Close on the heels of the U.S. Department of Energy's own "Consent-Based Siting" proceeding, the pro-nuclear Bipartisan Policy Center has published a lobbying plan, deaf to public concerns, that it hopes will lead to legislation next year, to expedite high-level radioactive waste transportation to so-called centralized interim storage sites, such as Waste Control Specialists, LLC in west Texas. Help push back, by using Beyond Nuclear's "We Do NOT Consent!" talking points to write your own, for submission to consentbasedsiting@hq.doe.gov by the Oct. 30th deadline. You can also contact your two U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative (including via the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121), as well as the White House, urging that: high-level radioactive waste stop being made; Hardened On-Site Storage (HOSS) be required for what already exists; calls for Mobile Chernobyls and de facto permanent parking lot dumps be rejected.
