Nuclear Waste "No Way Day"

The folks in Utah are facing an impending decision by the BLM that will determine whether nuclear waste is stored just a stone's throw away from beautiful and vibrant Salt Lake City. A nuclear waste storage company is hoping to make a ton of money on the project.

A while back I wrote about a NY Times editorial on this subject that illustrated how some view Utah and the west as a perfect dumping ground for their nuclear waste. The fact is, this project is a very bad idea and it must not happen.

The Salt Lake Chamber has a good backgrounder on the situation. More on Senator Hatch's site here. Other bloggers are writing about it here and here.

If you would like to voice your concerns on the proposal, please contact the BLM:

I think the nuclear waste is threatening the Great Salt Lke and its Wildlife. It needs to be stopped right away.
