Salt caverns — such a great idea for nuclear waste too!
This relates to Lake FUBAR ….
” The US government’s apparently blinkered Blue Ribbon commission still has salt domes and salt beds on its hit list of places to stuff nuclear waste using the excuse that it was recommended in the 1950s. “
The WIPP Deep Nuclear Waste Facility, which is supposed to be for US Defense related plutonium and other transuranic waste, but is being co-opted for foreign plutonium dumping, has continued to have problems with its ventilation system. It is effectively a salt mine. The US government’s apparently blinkered Blue Ribbon commission still has salt domes and salt beds on its hit list of places to stuff nuclear waste using the excuse that it was recommended in the 1950s. The below study discusses yet another reason that this is dangerous, besides the obvious that salt speeds up corrosion, and the less obvious instability of plutonium. This problem of mine gas would seemingly be even greater in old coal mining districts, such as Cumbria, where a deep nuclear waste facility has been proposed. Notice the CO2 occurence in Polish salt mines. Even where these are deep, properly mined, facilities, rather than burial…

After Atoyac River that disappeared when a huge sinkhole opened up on February 28, 2016, two more rivers in the mountains of the Mexican state of Veracruz are suffering the same fate. This brings the number of rivers in the region that have drained into subsoil in less than two months to three.
“WASHINGTON (AP) – Federal scientists say the chance of damaging earthquakes hitting east of the Rockies has increased significantly, much of it a man-made byproduct of drilling for energy. Oklahoma now has a 1 in 8 chance of damaging quakes in 2016, surpassing California as the state with the highest probability…”
Fort Campbell – PrepareAthon: Ready for any emergency
“Garrison personnel, units and organizations from across the Fort Campbell community conducted a training exercise Wednesday to practice responding to a severe weather event. The training scenarios tested individuals and organizations on their ability to react to a tornado hitting the installation.
The exercise was part of Fort Campbell’s continuous training on its emergency response plans for a large number of contingencies and the training marks Fort Campbell’s participation in America’s PrepareAthon, a nationwide campaign for increased community preparedness and resilience. . . .”
. . . “Tornadoes are the No. 1 thing we prepare for, but we always prepare for winter weather as well,” Fangman said. “We do an exercise every year on winter storms. We prepare for flash floods and flooding, wildfires, earthquakes – being this close to the New Madrid fault line we could be impacted – those are the natural disasters we prepare for.” . . .
♦ Is this “PrepareAthon” another rehearsal for marshal law disguised as disaster “help”? Recall after Katrina the soldiers pointed guns at nearby helpers who arrived with food and blankets and forced them to turn around. They herded the helpless population onto overpasses without drinking water and, at gunpoint, into the horrific no-water-no-electricity Superdome.
“INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana is typically safe from earthquake activity like the devastation in Ecuador or the major damage in Japan, but the state has seen its share of events that caused damage along the New Madrid fault line.
Here’s a look at the most significant earthquakes in recorded Indiana history, according to the U.S. Geological Survey . . . “
“A flood event of excessive proportions has crippled Houston and a vast region surrounding it. Five to 17 inches of rain have fallen in the area in less than 24 hours . . . “
