After Years-Capitol Hill Finally Sells Out. Campaign Contributions and Uranium To Keep Rollin In!
There is a better chance that I am going to star in FROZEN on Broadway, then Gov Herbert will veto bringing depleted uranium to Utah!
Steven Nelson, geology professor at Brigham Young University, said the half-life of depleted uranium will not lose radioactivity in a few centuries, the half-life is 4.5 billion years. He said eventually it will get out and be dispersed into the environment.
"Depleted uranium requires deep burial," Nelson said. Nelson has also studied Lake Bonneville, and said uranium is quite soluble in alkaline water, which would be a problem if the lake system rises.
"I wonder, if the legislators that passed this bill really understood depleted uranium, how they could in good conscience vote in favor of it," Nelson said.
Last year, the legislature shifted the $1.7 million dollar cost of regulating EnergySolutions from ES to taxpayers. Yep, ES private shareholders got a huge corporate welfare check. Flush with success, this year, ES gets to bring in nasty, nasty depleted uranium. The Legislature says YES!
Utah, The best government Of the corporations, By the corporations and For the corporations!
