Don’t Waste America! Telebriefing
Don’t Waste America is our national campaign focused on preventing decades of massive and dangerous high-level radioactive waste transport across the United States that would occur if efforts to revive the scientifically-indefensible Yucca Mountain, Nevada waste dump are accomplished, or if a Centralized or Consolidated “Interim” Storage (CIS) site for high-level radioactive waste is created.
Presenters each discussed one of the campaign’s four main components:
- Ian Zabarte (Principal Man, Western Bands Shoshone Nation Newe Sogobia) presented End Yucca!
- Diane D’Arrigo (Director, Radioactive Waste Project of NIRS) presented Stop CIS!
- Deb Katz (Citizen Awareness Network) presented Implement HOSS!
- Mary Olson (Director, NIRS Southeast) moderated and reflected on how waste transport intersects with the above.
