Hear the trains a-comin’?

On Thursday, March 21, PeaceWorks-KC will host Beyond Nuclear staffer Kevin Kamps, a leading opponent of efforts to dump nuclear and other radioactive waste at Yucca Mountain in Nevada. Kamps will address the question “Will America’s Nuclear Waste Problem Be Passing Through Missouri?” at Rime Buddhist Center, 700 W. Pennway, KC MO, 7-8:30 pm. Kamps will review the history of Yucca Mountain, why it is deemed unsafe for radioactive waste disposal, and what needs to be done to ensure the site is never operational.
