This is a big 'hat-tip' day and it's one of the things I love about Internet friends, we have each other's back so much of the time.
Friend Keith picked up on a Popey thing I emailed him and now I return the favor with this little nuclear nugget.
A tank that is holding nuclear waste at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in the state of Washington is leaking!
This is one of 177 tanks that hold waste from years ago when they produced plutonium for nuclear weapons at that facility. We are talking millions of gallons of waste.
The full story is interesting and you can read it here at this link U.S. News report leaks at Hanford Nuclear site.
I write a lot about our nuclear energy plants, but here is a different story going back years ago when we were producing plutonium for our atomic bombs. I guess we haven't learned much over time. When you deal with things nuclear it is always a dangerous and long-term thing.
I wish we would talk about this more so people could fully understand how serious this is. And to Keith thanks again for keeping me up on your "finds".
