Yucca Mountain

Yucca Mountain, the Nevada-based, scientifically flawed and politically unjust proposed high-level radioactive waste repository has now been canceled. However, pro-nuclear forces in Congress have not abandoned Yucca and funding is still allocated to the project.

Nevada is not for sale, and does not consent to the Yucca Mountain nuke waste dump!

Nevada is not for sale, and does not consent to the Yucca Mountain nuke waste dump!
 
Our long time colleague, Judy Treichel of the Nevada Nuclear Waste Task Force (see her speaking out against the Yucca nuke waste dump, right), has penned a powerful op-ed in the Las Vegas Sun. In it, she pushes back against the latest tactic of Yucca Mountain high-level radioactive waste burial dump advocates -- bribery. Please contact your U.S. Representative, and both your U.S. Senators, and urge them to block any legislation that would fund -- or otherwise support reviving -- the long-cancelled permanent repository targeted at Western Shoshone Indian land. You can be patched through to your Congress Members' D.C. offices via the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Inform them that Nevada does not consent to this dump. And let them know that when it comes to high-risk nuke waste transportation, we all live in Nevada -- most states, many major cities, and 75% of U.S. congressional districts, would be traversed by many thousands of trucks and trains, carrying high-level radioactive waste, over the course of not years but decades, bound for Yucca, if the dump ever opens. (So too would even more communities, along surface waterways, targeted for potential barge shipments.) Learn more at our Yucca Mountain website section
