Still time to say 'no' to radioactive waste from Germany

The public comment period for submitting comments to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on a proposed plan to import radioactive waste from Germany has been extended to January18 from December 30. Salt Lake City-based Energy Solutions, Inc., wants to incinerate German nuclear waste at its Tennessee plant, then ship incinerator ash back to Germany. Incineration can release contaminants into the air that are difficult or impossible to capture in filters including tritium and mercury. Please sign the petition opposing this plan today! And send your written comments to the NRC: Office of the Secretary, U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555, Attention: Rulemaking and Adjudications.
