Senator Merkley

In perpetuity to you

I just came from Hanford

Cake like

Peanut buttery like material

Before changing into glass into wine

Something like your mother

The tanks are mostly stable

Each one has its own flavor

That needs to be attacked

Deep vadose zone

Chasing the plume

Out of sight of mind happy

Were you in Zone 1, 2 or 3?

Chromium along the shores

The baby salmon with two Hanfords

Carbon tetrachloride

Something is so wrong and always so right here

Fast Flux boondoggle in my response to money

wouldn’t be an issue if we could trust

you comment

 

5

No capping decisions yet

Contained and waiting

You think that’s safe

We’ll find out after we do the analysis

Radio nucleotides

Half life 300 years

Remote handled waste” so bad they haven’t named it, capped it

Here I make the disconnect sign

Whip fluid deadline

2035 will be moving to WHIP a New Mexico repository

Displaced chemicals above ground that self concentrate

And go boom

Maybe maybe

Hanford only takes defense waste

New Mexico commercial

And some states want the waste as an income source

My heart breaks a little

Assumptions

Current assumed dates

True waste before 1970 under a different contract then

Explosion in 1997 Petroleum Processing Plant

A compelling reason as to why you would cap something (or someone)

Where did the sodium pipes from Trojan end up

Some went to Idaho for treatment

It’s nothing permanent

The rods are still there contained

All one unit

 

6

Burial Grounds

Central Plateau

2070 We can’t before 2070

Your children will

1943

43 miles of unsacred burial grounds

Unlined trenches

Massive plutonium dumped

What happens to those trenches?

These  transuranic  wastes?

Special workshop on the 22 burial grounds

Trucked to New Mexico where it’s the right place

Go fish.

Danger of passing one on the road in NE Oregon transuranic waste concern of 82%

If Dennis is the radioactive element and I’m the passenger vehicle and you are here

Here Fed reg allows X amount of radiation extremem calculati

Really wasn’t anything to fear as was reported

What about accidents or terrorists attacks?

That would change things.

Precautions

Every war ready

Stored here
