From Beyond Nuclear
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has a few more public meetings scheduled regarding “Consent-Based Siting” of centralized interim storage sites for high-level radioactive waste, and the truck, train, and barge shipments it would take to deliver the irradiated nuclear fuel there:
Boise, Idaho, July 14;
Minneapolis, Minnesota, July 21.
Strong turnouts are needed, both in person and via Webinar. If you live close enough, please consider attending, and taking folks with you; otherwise, spread word to people you know who live nearby, and watch online.
Public comments are urgently needed by DOE’s July 31 deadline.
Beyond Nuclear has prepared “We Do Not Consent!” talking points you can use to prepare your own.
Comments can be submitted by email, mail, fax, or Web form, in addition to orally in person at the public meetings. More
