Mississippi gets dumped on by the federal government enough without them or anyone else thinking our people want us to be the nation’s septic tank. The good folks of our state have paid $80 million through mandated federal fees to create a nuclear storage facility in Yucca Mountain, Nevada, and not anywhere in Mississippi.

A couple of news items of interest today (from a friend who tracks "nuclear industry" news articles of interest): . December 13, 2013 - Hartford Courant - Yucca Mountain Behind Filibuster Change? - According to a Wall Street Journal article No. 23, one of the reasons Senate majority leader Harry Reid exercised the "nuclear option" was to stack the D.C. Appeals Court with appointees that will block the development of Yucca Mountain, the federal nuclear waste repository that Reid and his toady, Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Gegory Jaczko, have shut down for now. Perhaps Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy can explain why they supported Reid's unconscionable action, and in doing so, condemned Connecticut to nuclear waste stored in this state indefinitely. In this time of unimaginable power grabs by the left, this one truly has long-term repercussions that must be answered for. .

Nuclear waster: Thy name is Yucca Mountain Jun 5, 2013 Op-Ed By John Shimkus June 5, 2013 Our country faces a mounting challenge when it comes to nuclear energy: the safe, long-term disposal of spent fuel from commercial reactors and leftover waste from defense activity. It's a challenge with a decadeslong history. The U.S. Department of Energy, 32 states, nuclear plant operators and millions of consumers have long counted on spent fuel and defense waste being transported away from reactor sites to a permanent repository. Both bodies of Congress, acting in strong bipartisan fashion, consistently voted to develop the Yucca Mountain site in Nevada and even imposed a fee on power generation to fund it. After spending $15 billion analyzing it, the Department of Energy in 2008 finally filed with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission an application for a license to build and operate the project. Numbering nearly 10,000 pages, the application addressed every imaginable question of safety and environmental protection ...

Some thoughts about high-level radioactive wastes in the United States. The framework of the 1982 Nuclear Waste Policy Act (NWPA) for ultimate disposal of high-level radioactive waste, one of the planet’s most dangerous human-made substances, has collapsed. Several events are converging that pave the way to reopen this law next year. They include: Abandonment of the proposed Yucca Mountain high-level radioactive waste geologic disposal site underscored by the 2012 elections; Recommendations of the Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Nuclear Future (BRC). The panel, convened in 2010 by President Obama after canceling the Yucca Mt. project, calls for a major institutional overhaul of storage and disposal site selection – expected to take several decades to implement if adopted; Rejection of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Waste Confidence Rule by the Federal Appeals Court of the District of Columbia for failure to thoroughly evaluate the environmental, safety and health impacts from spent . ...

As a state with vast renewable energy resources, including solar, wind and geothermal, Nevada is poised to help lead the growth of clean energy jobs, and Berkley has consistently advocated for increased renewable energy resources, including voting for the House's comprehensive clean energy and climate bill, the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009. Berkley has earned an impressive 87% lifetime LCV score, and has vowed to continue fighting for clean energy and environment priorities in the U.S. Senate.

"The issue was discovered in August during video monitoring of the area between the inner and outer walls that was designed as an overflow space if the inner steel liner were to leak." "before reaching a conclusion on whether the inner shell of the tank has leaked, more samples will be collected from the material spotted in August near Riser 90" "a photo of the same area between the two shells of the tank near Riser 83 in 2006 showed it was clean then" above excerpts from: out of idle curiosity - What ELSE could this be? (Perhaps some worker was late for lunch and chunked a bucket of stuff down there to get rid of it, so he could rush off to his bologna sandwich?) And as a side-note: Please explain to me once again "HOW CHEAP" nuclear power REALLY IS while - factoring in TOTAL COSTS - of nuclear waste transport, storage and disposal. (And yes, I am aware that the nuclear wastes at Hanford are NOT just those accrued by the use of nuclear power facilities.) And why does the U.S. refuse to REPROCESS and RECY ...

A slim but powerful meditation on Yucca Mountain in Nevada, long the proposed site for storage of America’s nuclear waste.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was trying to brand fellow Nevada Sen. Dean Heller a failure earlier this month when he wrote that passing an online poker bill was “the most important issue facing Nevada since Yucca Mountain.” Yet in doing so, Reid also elevated a controversial piece o...
I am trying the suggestion to get the "SHARE" button to work. Here goes. I TOLD YOU THE ATTACKS ADS WERE COMING. AFTER THEY DID THE PUSH POLL THEY KNEW HE WAS IN TROUBLE AND THEY ARE USING LIES AND THE COWARD SMITH KNOWS IT. PLEASE HELP ME SHARE THIS SO PEOPLE SEE THE TRUTH. I want to thank so many citizens for calling to let me know that they had received “push poll” telephone survey calls, and especially those citizens who took notes on the questions. This poll, by The Tarrance Group, a Republican polling firm, was done to formulate attack ads against me. In the survey, they implied that I was responsible for spending thousands of tax dollars to go to Key West and Las Vegas, while at the Public Service Commission. In fact, the Key West travel was a mandated PSC rate case hearing; and the Las Vegas trip was to visit Yucca Mountain, regarding the storage of spent nuclear fuels. Las Vegas happens to be the nearest city with an airport. In fact, the total of my travel while I was on the PSC was the low ...
The Republican National Convention: 1) New policy for women: Express great love for them, especially mothers and grandmothers, but keep the ultrasound machines at the ready and dispose of all available forms of contraception at the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump; 2) Foreign policy: Attack Syria, Iran, and attack Libya again for no reason, while poking Russia and China in the eye. Unveil a complete neoconservative hawkishness on full display from John McCain but, more importantly, from Condoleezza Rice, who everyone thought was simply there to tell her story and be the one acceptable remnant from the George W. Bush debacle; 3) Healthcare policy: Declare a war on Medicare: Explain that Democrats, through the ACA, raided the Medicare fund to pay for health care coverage for 30 million more Americans, thereby making seniors lose all coverage, take expensive trips to the emergency room, and, ultimately, sell all their belongings to sign up for Medicaid and wind up in a nursing home. Conversely, never expl ...
