The intractable problem of spent nuclear fuel

7/30/2012

Dear Readers,

Here's the link to a pdf slide show on spent nuclear fuel fires, their consequences, and how to reduce the risk as much as possible:

The presentation was created for an IEER Technical Training Workshop held in Takoma Park, Maryland last week (July 25-29, 2012). The title of the full workshop was: "Exploring the End of Nuclear Power and its Proliferation and Health Problems ".

My thanks to Arjun Makhijani (Director of IEER), the staff of IEER, and the other participants of the workshop (who saw me present this slide show in draft form).

The views expressed are my own.

Please share this presentation with your elected officials. Ask them to stop making ever-larger quantities of nuclear waste.

We'll never have any GOOD solutions to the "intractable" problem of what to do with nuclear waste, but we CAN stop making the problem bigger.

Sincerely,

Ace Hoffman
Carlsbad, CA
