Nuclear waste in our midst: a catastrophe waiting to happen

Kevin Kamps is a radioactive waste specialist at Beyond Nuclear. Here he discusses the environmental and medical risks associated with low-, medium- and high-level nuclear waste, and other issues surrounding transportation and storage. Nuclear waste, whether in reactors, transported in terrorist-target “Mobile Chernobyl” trucks, trains and barges, or sent to the proposed Yucca Mountain dumpsite, could cause a radioactive disaster. Kamps is the country’s leading expert on all aspects of nuclear waste, the Achilles heel of the nuclear industry. This is a terrific interview, listen to it and you will learn much that you never knew before.
