Is it true Republicans are wanting to reopen Yucca Mountain? I hope not. Nancy (Henderson)
Nancy from Henderson, Nevada! Hello. Thanks so much for your
Yes, unfortunately, this is the reality we’re dealing with
in this new administration. President Trump released a budget last week that
outlined a $120 million proposal to restart the licensing process for creating
a nuclear waste site at Yucca Mountain. I have said this before, but I will say
it again: this attempt to revive Yucca is naïve
and would be a colossal waste of taxpayer dollars! Yucca Mountain is nothing
more than a hole in the ground that we all know is not a viable solution for
dealing with nuclear waste. Nevadans won’t stand idly by while President Trump
irresponsibly forces our backyards to become the country’s dumping site for
Earlier this year, I worked with Senator Dean Heller and the
Nevada Congressional delegation to introduce legislation to keep Yucca from
being resurrected. The bill would require a binding agreement between the
federal government and the Governor, local government, and tribes before a
state receives nuclear waste so Nevadans won’t be forced to receive another
state’s waste against our will. I’ll continue to work with Governor Sandoval
and my colleagues in good faith – and on both sides of the aisle – to fight
against this and any other attempt to reverse this reckless project. I can
promise you that.
I mean I hate coal as much as the next environmentalist but
A lot of our coal comes from the Appalachia region of the US, and areas around it, and my understanding is that some of the poorest people in our country hold those mining job so
You know, divest from coal, but you better be thinking of alternatives for the people who are In those jobs. It’s not fair to force someone out of work for any agenda, good or bad.
It shouldn’t be “yay! The coal industry is collapsing, screw you guys” it should be “hey we don’t think this is working, we don’t want to fund this, invest in this instead”. Those people need to have access to other work.
