STATEMENT OPPOSING THE YUCCA MOUNTAIN NUCLEAR DUMP
Transporting 77,000 tons of high-level nuclear waste to a dump site at
Mountain that cannot meet basic safety standards poses unacceptable
to human health and the environment.
Important scientific, ethical, environmental justice, and policy questions
about the repository proposal remain unresolved, as identified in part by
independent federal review agencies. The Department of Energy has not
developed a credible transportation plan. The risks of shipping highly
radioactive waste through 44 states to a questionable site, as currently
proposed, cannot be justified.
We therefore oppose the Department of Energy's premature and
unfounded Yucca Mountain recommendation.
