NEW – SOSU for October 30, 2019: The Unintended Consequences
of Hanford: Clean-up Nightmare
This week we present audio from a presentation made by Bud Anderson at a
September No More Bombs Meeting. Bud Anderson is a retired electrical
engineer for the Shell Refinery in Anacortes and is part of the No More
Bombs group here in Skagit. Tracy Powell leads the group and Julia Hurd,
former SUSO host is also an active participant. Shortly before that
meeting Bud, his wife, Julia Hurd and Kathleen Flanagan toured the
National Historic Park where the Hanford B-Reactor is located.
Background: In 1943 Hanford was chosen as part of the Manhattan Project
to create plutonium used in the first nuclear bomb, tested at Los Alamos,
New Mexico, and in Fat Man, the bomb detonated over Nagasaki, Japan. The
B Reactor at Hanford was the first full-scale plutonium production
reactor in the world and is now a National Historic Park along with Oak
Ridge and Los Alamos. During WWII, the United States prioritized the
construction of nuclear bombs. Unfortunately, the decision makers in
charge of developing these weapons did not prioritize the safe long term
storage of the vast quantities of radioactive waste that would be
generated during the manufacture of these bombs.
In addition, last week’s SOSU broadcast of the interview of Skagit County
Election Supervisor, David Cunningham, about issues from the August
primary can be heard by clicking here.
