Concerns About Maine Yankee Safety and the Current Traffic
in Nuclear Waste:
Reactor re-start creates a public safety emergency.
Existing emergency planning is obsolete.
Biological monitoring database necessary for interpreting
accidents, decommissioning, etc. is non-existent.
The steam generator sludge deposits, plugged tubes, corrosion
damage and weld-induced deformations are the tip of an iceberg of safety
issues (e.g. reactor vessel embrittlement, spent fuel storage, health effects
of plant releases, decommissioning scenarios, etc.) at Maine Yankee.
The failure to fund disposal of Maine Yankee nuclear wastes
is a very lucrative criminal activity.
Questions About Maine Yankee Safety and the Current Traffic
in Nuclear Waste:
As Attorney General of the State of Maine don't you have
a Constitutional obligation to:
act to prevent the restart of a dilapidated reactor which
poses a clear and present danger to the public safety?
litigate with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)
and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to prevent the illegal accumulation
of additional radioactive waste disposal costs by the future citizens of
support the establishment of a special prosecutor to investigate
the traffic in nuclear waste?
seek the prosecution of those who would profit from the illegal
operation of the degraded and dangerous equipment at Maine Yankee?
