WIPP Gate Part 4

What The ‘Frack’ Were They Thinking
Even though officials were warned of the dangers of storing hazardous materials given the instability of the stratigraphy of the land and sediment formations in New Mexico, they not only went ahead with the WIPP program, but in their infinite greed and stupidity, decided to frack the hell out of the area as well.
Experts have noted, that due to the geological fragility of the entire region encompassing Loving, Carlsbad, Hobbs and Artesia is being further compromised by drilling and fracking in this area. Sinkholes are popping up all over the place and are being blamed on the intensive drilling in the area. The WIPP facility is a ticking time bomb and the project officials, DoE, DoD, EPA and your elected politicians were warned about this yet they went ahead with designating this area for the WIPP project anyway.
As a result, we are witnessing a monumental cover-up that will down the road become the largest nuclear waste disaster in the US.
Unlike other deep underground hazardous waste repositories, WIPP’s sole inventory consists of highly radioactive TRU waste-Plutonium, and waste from nuclear weapons.
