    Press Release:      US Nuclear Energy Visits the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository
    02/23/06
           
    Gary J. Duarte, Director

February 14, 2006 We visited the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository project. I have never seen a more scientifically analyzed facility in my life! The science applied to this “tuff” volcanic rock is astounding. Anyone reviewing the science applied to studying this site who comes away pessimistic has to be an individual lacking in common sense, average logic or both!

From the DOE Fact Sheet information: The majority of scientists “estimate that the chance of a volcanic event disrupting the Yucca Mountain repository to be about one in 63 million per year”. Scientists and expert geologists “consider the Yucca Mountain region one of the least active volcanic fields in the western United States. The storage area is 1,000 feet below the mountain surface and 1,000 feet above the water table . . . and then the materials are “packaged” in highly designed containers deep in the tunnels . . . and monitored by scientists 24/7. What part of “safe nuclear waste management” is not understood here?

Opposition to this science is perplexing. We would challenge any opposing scientist to “prove the instability of Yucca Mountain as a nuclear repository” to the “majority” of scientists who have proven it IS the best repository choice for the United States.

Nevada politicians, media and other factions of the state have opposed this nuclear repository for reasons other than pure science and they would have little to stand on if the issue remained pure SCIENCE. The media should provide “equal time” to the science of nuclear energy and the Yucca Mountain repository in order to propagate a fair educational representation to Nevada’s citizens and America.

This assessment further demonstrates our growing need to advance our mission statement, “Our mission is to influence change in public opinion towards knowledgeable citizens about nuclear energy and waste repository issues”. We challenge our politicians and media to educate our citizens based on “scientific majority”. We will continue to bring our message to citizens via “direct mail, door to door and with our scientific presentations” so that they can understand our need to advance nuclear technology in America.
