Methane Occurrence and Outbursts in Salt (and other) Mines: One More Reason that Deep Burial of Nuclear Waste is a Bad Idea

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…

    Scarlett Oak Terrace, just off Maryland
    A meteorite strike may be the cause of a massive brush fire in Bowie, according to the Bowie Volunteer Fire Department. The possible meteorite strike happened around 5 p.m. Sunday in the woods behind the Scarlett Oak Terrace, just off Maryland Route 450. It took firefighters several hours to bring the fire under control, WJZ reported. WJZ said firefighters later discovered a hunk of what appears to be meteorite lying at the bottom of a cratered patch of earth, surrounded by the splintered and charred remains of tree limbs.

    HOAX!! ??

    Fire department apologizes for blaming fire on a meteorite.. It turns out the story about a meteorite strike that may have started a massive brush fire in Bowie was a hoax, officials said

    • I think you nailed it …. 2nd sinkhole forming ….. Plus they paid off all the (nearest) home owners and screwed the people 1 inch beyond their ‘line’.

  2. What was our Atmosphere like in the Past in theory

    What was this Water Vapor Canopy around the earth theory
    The word for this is firmament the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament.

  3. The wipp facility is bogus. Before it was ever built, a paper was written stating it was a lousy place to dump anything and wouldn’t last 30 years. It got built anyway…..who’s zooming who?
