Dricks’ Nuclear Tricks - Half a Country and Half a World Away

http://www.counterpunch.org/2011/11/17/dricks-nuclear-t... /


Dricks is the Region IV Public Affairs Officer for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). He’s based in Arlington, Texas, nearly 1500 miles away from Southern California. Half a country, and half a world away…

On Saturday the North County Times (nctimes.com ) published a commentary by Roger Johnson, asking for IMMEDIATE shutdown of San Onofre Nuclear Waste Generating Station. He got IMMEDIATE action: On Monday the NC Times published Victor Dricks’ response! Somehow he had heard about Roger Johnson’s commentary and must have worked weekends to counter it. I wonder if he collected overtime pay or just comp time for his efforts?

Our reactors can explode, just like theirs did. Our spent fuel can burn, just like theirs did.

In fact, what happened at Fukushima Dai-ichi isn’t over, isn’t as bad as it can get, and isn’t being fully reported! A recent busload of reporters, finally let in to “see” the plant for the first time since the accident, weren’t allowed off the bus, even though they were each dressed in full-body protective hazmat suits, to add to the 480,000 hazmat suits used so far at Fukushima Dai-ichi.

-snip of facts-
--------------------------

the article ends with: But Dricks’ lies can’t change the facts. His resignation should be demanded by all citizens who want their paid servants to tell the truth.

THEY WOULDN'T EVEN LET THEM GET OUT OF THE BUS WITH FULL HAZMAT SUITS ON !!!
