Hanford WA GAS RELEASE EVENT - the whistleblower was right!

It's official now -- Hanford WA cleanup specialists expect a GAS RELEASE EVENT in storage tanks full of the Cold War sludge morphing through isotope deterioration at rates and into chemicals we cannot decipher or control. Even the experts are calling this highly toxic nuclear waste "sludge."

 In 2011, DOE emptied 149 single-shell tanks by pumping nearly all of the liquid waste out into 28 newer double-shell tanks.

How's that for technical?  More ...

And the Department of Energy  tried to send the whistleblower away forever ...

The Explosion ...
On May 14, 1997 at 10:47 p.m., a chemical tank exploded in a deserted factory at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation outside Richland, Wash., the final resting place for more than two-thirds of the nation's high-level nuclear waste.

The blast shredded the steel liner of a 1,500 gallon chemical drum laced with plutonium, sending the heavy metal lid hurtling through the ceiling, where it ruptured a water main and burst through the roof. Water poured into the room, streamed down four flights of stairs and flooded the nearby parking lot. A yellow-orange plume of toxic gases drifted over the Hanford site and nearby communities.
