Reclassifying Nuclear Waste to Dump on States; Bury – US NRC Comment Deadline Friday 24 July, 11.59 pm NYC-DC (ET)

Reclassify, dilute, disperse and pass the responsibility on to local councils landfill services and to the public unaware they are buying products that may be made from “recycled” radioactive scrap metal. This is happening here in the UK as well as America. This blog post is a Good analysis of what is happening in America, which mirrors here in the UK .
