Uranium tailings were once found at proposed Salt Lake City homeless shelter site -- though records show apparent cleanup 21.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Opponents of a proposed Sugar House homeless shelter now have the option to go nuclear. Salt Lake City has learned during the due diligence period for a $7 million land purchase that the site was once home to radioactive tailings from a long-shuttered uranium mill. Documents indicate that the property near 653 E. Simpson Ave. was part of a nationwide federal cleanup ordered by Congress in the late 1970s, but landowner records don’t reveal the precise location of the tailings or the steps taken t...

America’s Interest in a Global Rule of Law 15.2.2017 American Prospect
This article appears in the Winter 2017 issue of The American Prospect magazine. Subscribe here .  The United States may no longer be the hegemonic world power that it was in 1945, but it remains unambiguously the world’s leader. America’s willingness to lead in multiple forums—the United Nations, climate change conventions, NATO, trade agreements—sets the tone for global rule of law. Yes, America has its blemishes and so does the global system, among them tensions over the unequal gains from globalization and double standards on human rights. But U.S. leadership of the international treaty system, with multilateral rules and shared processes of mutual respect, is still the first and last line of defense against worldwide forces that insist on brute assertion of self-interest justified by appeals to each nation’s special culture. The threat to the globe, and to the United States, is that Donald Trump personifies those self-same menacing forces. His contemptuous attitude toward the international system he ...

Toxic Liquid Nuclear Waste Headed for US Roadways 15.2.2017 Mother Jones
The Department of Energy, to the consternation of environmental groups, is preparing to transport 6,000 gallons of highly toxic liquid nuclear waste over American roadways. The spent nuclear fuel is "target residue material" containing highly enriched uranyl nitrate—which after processing can be used as fuel. The DOE has spent years planning for the transfer of the waste from Canada's Chalk River Laboratories in Ontario to the Savannah River Site, a reprocessing facility in South Carolina. It will be transported in at least 100 to 150 separate truck shipments over a period of about three years, encased in cannisters normally used to transport solids that have been retrofitted to handle liquids. For security reasons, DOE won't reveal the exact timing or routes of the shipments. But elected officials in states it is likely to pass through are concerned about safety. Until earlier this month , the transfer was held up by a lawsuit from environmental and nuclear safety groups, including the Sierra Club and ...
