Hanford disaster looms

I’ve read what the folks at Hanford Nuclear Reservation have to say about leakage of on-site stored nuclear waste. A month ago, it was a few tanks; now it’s six tanks.

As I understand it, there are many tanks. They are very large, and all of them are well beyond their design life. But not to worry Washingtonians, at this moment we face no danger, per the experts. Guess what? I believe them. There’s no danger today, but I’ve been educated in the sciences, and I can predict the future, based on statistical degradation (as can the scientists at Hanford).

When will it no longer be safe to pull our heads out of the sand?
