Beyond Nuclear at "Decommissioning: A New Era in the U.S. Nuclear Power Industry; a Critical Need for Congressional Oversight," on Capitol Hill

Beyond Nuclear was honored and privileged to speak at a May 13th congressional briefing, co-sponsored by Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Natural Resources Defense Council, Nuclear Energy Information Service, Nuclear Information and Resource Service, Riverkeeper and other participating groups, including ours.  
 
A recording of the briefing, about urgent atomic reactor decommissioning and highly radioactive waste management issues, is posted online at the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) website, here. (Beyond Nuclear's presentation, by radioactive waste specialist, Kevin Kamps, is from the 46 minute 10 second mark, to the 59 minute 58 second mark; also see the Q&A period, beginning at the 1 hour 20 minute mark.) Also at the link above are posted supporting materials for the briefing, including Beyond Nuclear's briefing paper, by Paul Gunter, reactor oversight project director, entitled "'Nuclear Autopsy': The Missing Link between Decommissioning Reactors and Operating License Extensions."
