Editorial: Vermont Yankee makes misstep in handling of new radiation find
- April 11st 2010
             
      T
he last thing Vermont Yankee should be doing is to downplay new reports of radioactive material found in the ground on the plant's campus, especially when the concern is raised by a state health official ...

...The plant's public response so far to the discovery of cesium -- a material considerably more toxic than tritium -- hardly follows the script of "rebuilding your trust."

      I
n France 80% of electricity is generated by nuclear plants and I can't imagine safety lapses publicly investigated and covered by the media .
           
      As a design engineer I refused to support damning practices and as part of my job I had to report the trenspassing of safety rules; the nuclear regulator confirmed my reports; immidiatly, very serious sanctions where inflicted only against me, the reporter; I filed a case and the Criminal Section of the French Supremme Court decied four rulings, all of them against me; it's illegal but no French media has never dedicated a single word to this event; equipment to the highest level of nuclear requirements(ASME III class 1)has been marketed internationnally without regular safety files; in France, editors sleep at the night simply because daily they turn a blind eye to the state-owned nuclear industry.
