Fukushima Was An Accident But Hanford Was Deliberate_Featured_, Featured Videos Tuesday, February 21st, 2012
This video on “The Hanford Story” is a bit of propaganda. The DOE estimated in April 1990 that at least 444 billion gallons of low radioactive waste was dumped right into the ground because they said, “there was nowhere else to put them.” In 1989 the DOE, the EPA and Washington State agreed to bring Hanford in compliance as 4.4 billion gallons of contaminated ground water has been treated for radioactivity over the last 20 years.
The video forgot to mention that the Department of Energy admitted in 1990 that 540,000 curies of iodine 131 were “accidentally” released into the atmosphere at General Electric’s Hanford, WA nuclear facility between 1944 and approx 1955. The Three Mile Island incident released only 15 curies in comparison.
