Nuclear partnership debated

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

The Department of Energy’s project to support domestic and international nuclear energy development drew a relatively light response at a public hearing Thursday.

Five people spoke against and one urged full speed ahead.

Sol Golub of the department’s Office of Nuclear Energy gave an overview of the history and issues involved in the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP) and the matter at hand, a Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement

There was no participation by Los Alamos National Laboratory or Los Alamos county officials or local business leaders, as has been the case in recent nuclear-related hearings. The session was the only GNEP hearing in northern New Mexico in this phase.

Bill Stratton, a member of the Los Alamos Education Group, urged the department to get going before the country is so far behind that it runs out of electricity.

“Stop using the PEIS as a stalking device,” he said “Find a contractor to design the plant and start doing it on a modest scale. One learns by trying. I urge DOE to commence these activities,” he said.
