Exclamation Govt Halts Fee For Non-Existent Nuke Waste Site After 30 Years & $43 Bn Collected
May 20, 2014

The US Department of Energy will no longer collect a small electricity fee from the bills of nuclear energy customers which was originally intended to fund the construction and operation of a nuclear waste dump that was never built.

The charge, which will no longer be collected past Friday, was first instituted in 1983 with the aim of constructing a facility capable of disposing of what is now almost 70,000 metric tons of highly radioactive spent fuel. The waste is spread throughout nuclear reactors across the US.

The government collected $750 million from the charge each year, totaling $43 billion. It remains to be seen what Washington plans to do with that money.

“From the very infancy of the commercial nuclear power industry, the federal government has always stated that it would take responsibility for the (disposal) of high-level nuclear waste, and that hasn’t always happened,” Michigan Public Service Commissioner Greg White told KDVR-TV in Colorado. “The waste all sits at the plant sites where it was generated, despite the collection of some $40 billion.”

Vast amounts of decaying waste are expensive to store, terrible for the environment, and constitute a major risk to public health. Nuclear and utility industries have for years complained that the Energy Department has collected the money while doing nothing to ease the disposal process, eventually filing suit to stop the fees from being collected.

Last year, an appeals court determined that the government had no intention to actually build the dump and that it could not accurately estimate the cost of such a plan. It then ordered the Energy Department to suspend the collection of the fee, though it took...

Where did the money go!!!

Stealing from the people for personal gains?

While that money should have been directed to ensure the safety of the residents who are now suffering from the effects of the Hanford Nuclear Waste Site that has multiple tanks that have leaks.

While babies are dying, and workers are getting sick, money that should have gone to the Hanford Site was, maliciously, and fraudulently spent. Who is accountable for the missing money? Trillions of dollars continue to slip out of the hands of the government, and they don't know where it is going.

Fraud and treason continue in a nation that by actions and words is under the rule of a shadow government that clearly has no interest in the health, freedom, or welfare of any American citizen!

Waiting for truth.

Waiting for the world to change...for the better!
