Demonstrate Your Patriotism—Accept Nuclear Waste in YOUR Backyard!

Dec 17, 2001

The nuclear power industry says that nuclear waste must be moved NOW. You’ll never guess why! The threat of terrorist attack–so say these people who have produced this waste for decades without any idea of where the nuclear fuel would be stored when it was no longer useful.

They left that little problem for someone else to figure out–and pay for, of course!

If the nuclear waste can be threatened by terrorists, then how much more of a risk the nuclear reactors themselves must be. But industry executives seem to have forgotten that.

After all, they weren’t really concerned about protecting against a terrorist threat. They just wanted a pretext for doing something completely unreasonable.
