(UNEDITED) Don't let the state of Utah become a nuclear dumping ground just so EnergySolutions can make a profit and risk the health of every Utah resident now and into the future,thousands of years into the into the future.
This is insanity, last Tuesday, the Radiation Control Board decided that allowing a permanent radioactive hazard into the state of Utah was a better call than passing a moratorium and facing the wrath of EnergySolutions' lawyers. This decision has paved the way for over 14,000 drums of concentrated depleted uranium to begin coming to Utah next month.
Depleted uranium (DU) gets hotter (more radioactive) with time, and lasts effectively for eternity.
Our Governor has the power to protect Utah from depleted uranium. Call him and ask him to act now to block EnergySolutions from importing DU.801-538-1000 or 800-705-2464
Also,check this site out,http://healutah.org/fivethings-DU. EnergySolutions wants to import Italian nuclear waste for ultimate disposal in Utah.
