Hanford; Leaking Poisonous Heavy Metal And Radioactive Elements Into Air and Into Columbia River, Multiple TOP SECRET Green Runs Experimented with Releasing Radioactive Poisons On Towns Downwind Of Site

HANFORD WAS BEHIND PRODUCING THE THOUSANDS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS THAT THE US NOW THREATENS THE REST OF THE WORLD WITH; ALL ON HAIR TRIGGER ALERT

Most of the hundreds of countries around the world have ZERO nuclear weapons, so they don't have any sites like Hanford, and they also don't have hundreds of sites all across the country, where nuclear garbage is stored, temporarily.


RADIOACTIVE POISON DUST AND HOT PARTICLES CAN BE FOUND ALL AROUND NUCLEAR FACILITIES, INCLUDING NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS, LABS AND RESEARCH FACILITIES


Hidden danger: Radioactive dust is found in communities around nuclear weapons sites – Los Angeles Times
Studies by a Massachusetts scientist say that invisible radioactive particles of plutonium, thorium and uranium are showing up in household dust, automotive air cleaners and along hiking trails outside the factories and laboratories that for half a century contributed to the nation’s stockpile of nuclear weapons.

The findings provide troubling new evidence that the federal government is losing control of at least some of the radioactive byproducts of the country’s weapons program.

Marco Kaltofen, a nuclear forensics expert and a professor at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, said he collected samples from communities outside three lab sites across the country and found a wide variation of particle sizes. He said they could deliver lifelong doses that exceed allowable federal standards if inhaled.

HANFORD HAS MANY TANKS FULL OF RADIOACTIVE POISONS, AND THEY ARE LEAKING


At Hanford, there are 177 tanks full of the most toxic, most highly radioactive waste products in the world, all of them concentrated at the Hanford Site. 

These 177 tanks were built in 1943, and are made of concrete and metal. A few of these tanks have double carbon steel liners. The Dept. of Energy knew back in 2001 that at least 67 of these tanks had leaked at least 3.8 million liters of waste up to that point. The only question left is how much has leaked since then and where did these leaking toxic and radioactive materials go?

TV: Alarm over “Catastrophic Leak” at US nuclear site — “Emergency response underway” — Surge in radioactive leakage after “essentially blowing a hole” in massive tank containing “deadliest substance on earth” — Former Worker: “I was very shocked to hear it breached that significantly” (VIDEOS)

MUCH OF NUCLEAR INDUSTRY IS LIKE GALEN WINDSOR; CLAIMS ALL OF THESE LEAKING HIGH LEVEL WASTE TANKS DON'T EXIST AND CANNOT HARM ANYONE, EVEN IF THEY ARE DUMPED INTO THE COLUMBIA RIVER (HORMESIS THEORY)


The Nuclear Scare Scam - Galen Winsor
"Well, in 1960, we found out that the materials we were working with, the things we called “high-level waste,” that if you waited three years, these million-gallon tanks that high-level waste went into boiled off 15,000 gallons of water a day. Fairly hot? Oh, yes. This material, if it ever broke a line, would seal itself off in the ground within about a foot, make its own glass. It wasn’t going to go anyplace. We did that a time or two (accidentally, of course).

....The emissions from uranium, plutonium, cesium, all of those things are only important if you assemble an amount that if you get this amount and this amount together it can go critical. You can get a blue flash and therefore get burned and that’s happened 34 times in the business, and eight men have died as a result of that. Accidental criticality. Documented in Los Alamos document 3611, if you want to check the source. Or if you got enough of it together that it’s giving off ultraviolet light of this particular wavelength and frequency, without any intervening shielding, enough to burn you—sunburn you—erythema, reddening of the skin. If it’s less than that, if the effect is less than that, then what is the problem? Excessive government regulation. That’s what the problem is."

In other words, Galen is claiming that even if all of these man made heavy metal and radioactive poisons get into the environment, they will have zero negative effect on animals, plants and human beings. He is a hormesis theory true believer. He believes that more man made radiation only makes you healthier. He worked at Hanford and played with these hazardous materials, drank the water from spent fuel pools and bathed in it too, to try and 'prove' to the world that plutonium could not hurt anyone. 

The hormesis theory is debunked via the articles below...

HOW MUCH RADIOACTIVE HEAVY METAL POISON WENT INTO THE  COLUMBIA RIVER AND WASHINGTON AIR, AND HOW MUCH IS IN THE RIVER SEDIMENT TODAY? 

Mack MAY 11, 2017 Just FYI, this is what Hanford released into the air from 1944-1972

Iodine-131 – 739,000 curies
Ruthenium-103 – 1,160 curies
Ruthenium-106 – 388 curies
Strontium-90 – 64.3 curies
Plutonium-239 – 1.78 curies
Cerium-144 – 3,770 curies

This is what Hanford has released into the Columbia River 1941-1971

Arsenic-76 – 2,500,000 curies
Neptunium-239 – 6,300,000 curies
Phosphorus-32 – 230,000 curies
Sodium-24 – 12,000,000 curies
Zinc-65 – 490,000 curies

WHO IS TESTING BOTTOM SEDIMENT FROM THE COLUMBIA RIVER, AND WHAT KINDS OF HEAVY METAL RADIOACTIVE POISONS ARE IN IT?



rogerthatMay 10, 2016 … When I told that story to my neighbor, an attorney for the city of Portland and very reliable, he added more to the story:

He knew a person that was stationed on a barge at the mouth of the Columbia. Their job was to dredge up muck from the bottom of the river and inspect it for environmental toxins. As he described; the sediment was so radioactive, they sunk the barge right there. I don’t know what to make of that, but I’ve thought about it for years. …

HanfordOnHeart May 11, 2016  "It was common practice for workers on barges to drop a bucket into the river to get their drinking water. In 1956, Hanford officials aware of the river's contamination considered issuing warnings about drinking untreated water from the river. They decided that restrictions were not essential and it might cause public relations to suffer."

HANFORD RADIATION IS LEAKING INTO THE COLUMBIA RIVER


Remember that the above report claims that all releases of radiation into the rivers ended in the 70's. Well, what if the radiation dumping/leaking into the rivers never ended, and continues today?

PNNL reports that toxic and radioactive fluids from these 67 leaking tanks ended up in the Columbia River starting in 2002. PNNL "measured both radiological and nonradiological constituents in Columbia River water during 2002 as part of a continuing environmental monitoring program (Poston et al. 2003). Cumulative water samples are collected at Priest Rapids Dam and at the Richland pumphouse (Figure 4.4-4). Additional samples were taken at transects of the river and at near-shore locations at the Vernita Bridge, 100-F Area, 100-N Area, the Hanford Townsite, and the 300 Area.

These water samples were collected at frequencies varying from quarterly to annually. Results are presented in Bisping (2003) and summarized in Poston et al. (2003). These data show a statistical increase in tritium, nitrate, uranium, and iodine-129 along the Hanford Reach. 

All these constituents are known to be entering the river from contaminated groundwater beneath the Hanford Site (Section 4.4.3). Measurements of strontium-90 at the Richland pumphouse were not statistically higher than those at the Vernita Bridge even though strontium-90 is known to enter the river through groundwater inflow at 100 N Area. 

Measurements of tritium along transects showed higher concentrations near the shoreline relative to mid-river for samples from the 100-N Area, the Hanford Townsite, the 300 Area, and the Richland pumphouse.

The above report makes sense when one looks at the area in which these tanks were placed. One would think that the 'experts' in charge back then would think about leaks, and would locate these tanks in an area that was mainly clay, which is good at limiting fluid movement and absorbing toxic radiation. 

However, quite the opposite happened. The nuclear 'experts' at Hanford located all tanks in an area that is full of sand and gravel, which is ideal for quick movement of any liquids and no filtration of radioactivity. These tanks were built on top of 200 feet of sand and gravel, which is just about the WORST possible thing to do with metal tanks full of liquid radioactive wastes. Sand and gravel does not limit the spread of underground radiation leaks, it must makes them spread faster and easier. 

HANFORD DUMPED RADIOACTIVE HEAVY METAL POISONS DIRECTLY INTO THE COLUMBIA RIVER


The following report documents dumping of radioactive materials into the Columbia river. 

"The chief findings: 

o Sixty percent of the Hanford Reach riverbed of the Columbia River is contaminated with solid, radioactive waste from Hanford's thorium-to-uranium-233 production campaign

o The contamination probably resulted from disposal of solid radioactive waste directly into the Columbia River. This dumping occurred just upstream of the D-Reactor outfall

At that location, there are remains of an old river crossing, which might have served as a radioactive waste disposal system."

Even without the above official reports that seem to prove dumping of radioactive materials and tanks leaking radiation into the Hanford River since 2002, we can logically compute what happens, given the fact that leaks have been happening in these tanks since the 1960's. 

Let us assume that the radioactive liquids ONLY traveled 2 feet per day through this porous sand and gravel. We know, that sounds hard to believe, give the porosity of sand and gravel but let us stay conservative for now.

WHAT IS ENTERING COLUMBIA RIVER FROM HANFORD SPECIFICALLY?


If the liquids traveled 2 feet per day towards the river, which is 5 miles away, it would take 13,200 days to get there. By extension, this means the radiation would reach the river in 36 years, from the day the leaks started in 1960. From 1960 to 2013, totals 53 years. Is it any wonder that reports keep surfacing of heavy metal radioactive poisons from Hanford entering the Columbia river?

Here is a specific listing of hundreds of types of radioactive isotopes that have been categorized and listed. "In this report you will find a listing of the names of 237 radionuclides that Hanford released into the air and into the Columbia River. This report will also briefly describe what would need to be done to estimate the amount released for each of the radionuclides. 
Meanwhile, the government and agency in charge of cleaning up the site downplays the dangers of radiation, as seen in the video above. They all consistently claim that only 1 to possibly 5 tanks started leaking recently, but that they pose no hazard to health. This news report is consistent with the nuclear industry strategy of denial, minimization, and outright coverup of what is really going on with radioactive substances.

Even the state governor standing up and asking for action at Hanford is way off the mark as far as knowing or admitting to what is REALLY going on.
Now that we have discussed the leaking of radioactive fluids into the Hanford River, which serves as the drinking water for many communities, let's dive into the radioactive air emissions that have been going on since Hanford was built and operating. 

Massive amounts of plutonium were buried, dumped or are leaking out of Hanford

HANFORD LEAKING RADIOACTIVE ELEMENTS INTO AIR, WHICH GO DOWNWIND

Hanford not only produced nuclear bombs and handled all of the radioactive garbage from that, but they also took all of the spent nuclear fuel from all of the nuclear subs and ships.

This is a picture of these nuclear garbage filled containers sitting above ground at Hanford, which originate from all of the US nuclear subs and ships. There are toxic radioactive emissions coming from all of these tanks as well as from the underground tanks at Hanford, plus the tunnels where a lot more radioactive waste is stored 'temporarily', until they figure out what to do with it.

According to KING 5 News, April 5, 2013 (h/t Anonymous tip): The Department of Energy (DOE) issued a statement Friday insisting a hydrogen gas release at Hanford last month was not an unexpected event. But the DOE does not challenge KING 5’s exclusive report disputing the duration of the potentially dangerous release.

 

On Thursday, KING 5 challenged the DOE’s assessment of the March 15th release, which stated it was an expected 36-hour event. Based on information from confidential sources, KING 5 learned the release actually lasted much longer, up to five days. [...] KING 5 maintains the duration and intensity of the release elevate it beyond what could be considered “expected. [...]

However, just in the two sections above, anyone with common sense can see that the Hanford is a deadly, toxic waste dump that is releasing harmful radioactive substances into the air, groundwater and the Columbia river as well. Those man made radioactive elements do have negative effects on animals, plants, and human beings.

To say this constant leaking and spewing of radiation into the surrounding environment and nearby communities stinks to the the height of extreme hubris.

SUMMARY: NUCLEAR INDUSTRY BUILT ON LIES AND DECEPTION


Could it be that there is a whole industry built on secrets, lies, deception and coverups? 

When will we learn that nuclear energy is not meant for human beings? Nuclear power is too dangerous, too toxic, too invisible to trust ordinary humans with it, while at the same time tempting them with huge bonuses, perks, subsidies, and pork barrel spending. Remember what happened in the Greek tragedy to the boy who flew too close to the sun?
