No, but I did hear about the weapons grade plutonium that was shipped from SC to 70 miles north of Las Vegas.

It was all over the news and someone else posted about it on this forum approximately 1hr before you posted your findings.

Yes, that topic was posted 5 minutes earlier - the same time which took me to copy-paste the links and typing on the phone.

In any case, you should get the point, especially since I posted two links.

However, if you dont care about all those happenings, then obviously number of minutes between posts is more important thing to you..

It looks like a 1hr difference according to timestamps.
Also, they are calling it weapons grade plutonium, so it doesn't sound like waste to me. Dangerous, yes.

Accuracy is important to me.

Search for "waste" under: https://thenevadaindependent.com/art...dge-or-consent

You can call "cockroach" as "cockroach" or "water bug" (which is nicer name)...
And the same here, call it however you want - it is nuclear waste.

I still see it as weapons grade plutonium and not waste.

Our state representatives need to get their act together and get monetary compensation for us Nevadans. Why should we risk our safety, lives and livelihood with all these nuclear wastes being shipped in. We don't even have Nuclear power in our state. Not only that, Nellis Air Force Base probably has more nuclear weapons stored inside the base than they care to admit coupled with the daily military training bombings, Nevadans are basically guinea pigs here in our state.

The nuclear waste should not be dumped here at all - it is about all nevadans safety and health, and it cannot be paid by any money or monetary compensation..

Nevadans should be compensated and that is besides the argument you presented, which I agree that it should not be dumped here considering we do not utilize nuclear power BUT at the same time, we Nevadans should be paid monetary compensation for using our land as storage. As long as this goes on we should be paid for it.
