Yucca backers rallying
money leads to money, so what if it could lead to death!

WASHINGTON -- Leaders of a national lobbying group that formed this spring to promote Yucca Mountain plan to visit Nye County this month to begin building ties in Nevada, an organizer said.

A meeting tentatively set for July 29 in Pahrump illustrates a growing relationship between rural Nevadans and interests that support the proposed nuclear waste repository.

The Yucca Mountain Task Force was formed in April to revive political support in Congress and in various states for the Energy Department effort, which has been hit by delays. The task force consists of state utility regulators and nuclear industry executives, including the Nuclear Energy Institute trade association.

Five task force members plan to meet with Nye County officials, according to organizer David Blee. He is executive director of the U.S. Transport Council, an organization of nuclear waste shipping firms and equipment manufacturers that plan to seek Yucca contracts.

2. This is serious. Yucca Mountain will make CA uninhabitable
The dump is to go inside an inactive volcano, on top of a major earthquake fault, above an aquifer what leads into the Colorado River. The safety reports were faked to make it appear safer than it is. This is Bush's way of getting his revenge on California.
