WEBSITE MAKES DUMPING RADIOACTIVE WASTE OUT TO BE GREATEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD
FITSNews – March 7, 2007 – If you’re ready for a feel-good, snuggly moment with hazardous waste, check out the Truth About Barnwell website.
We assure you by the time you’re done you’ll be ready to roll around in radioactive materials and give nuclear waste a big fat kiss on the lips.
Of course, the actual ‘Truth About Barnwell‘ is that according to published reports “some migration of radioactive hydrogen (tritium) from the buried waste in some trenches has occurred.” Which is a nice way of saying “stuff that will kill you is leaking into the ground.”
UPDATE – Apparently they found the stuff in streams, too. FYI, if you care about this issue you need to call Joan Brady and Robert Brown, who are the swing votes on the subcommittee that’s dealing with this issue.
