Los Alamos Plutonium Stored in a "Fabric Type Material" Building
Silver Doctors ^ | 7/6/11 | Global Research TV

Posted on 07/06/2011 10:01:14 AM PDT by Nachum

Reports indicate the fire came within 50 feet of the grounds of the Los Alamos lab where plutonium was stored in a fabric material building. This is unexplainable, unacceptable, and came within feet of causing the worst disaster in US history.

This is a complete misreprentation from what I have read. The waste in question are articles such as clothing or tools that might have come into contact with radioactive materials. Waste such as plutonium is kept in a different secure facility.

This qualifies as a disaster “resolved or averted” by the messiah.

I’m not going to let the words “fabric type material” get me wound up. There are some incredibly durable fabrics being produced these days.

I needs ta know more.

“Within 50 feet of the grounds”? That means the fire probably came within several miles (!) of the building holding fissile material. Some crisis.

Well, since the “Centre for Research on Globalization” (CFROG?) is reporting it, it must be true, right?

I had a relative from NM call me all worried because of the spin they got from anti-nuke types on Good Morning America. Five minutes on Google fixed that problem. Too bad the nutbars who wrote this couldn’t have bothered doing the same. Or, then again, they probably didn’t want to.

I’m reminded that kevlar is a ‘fabric type material’.

Oh, c’mon. Don’t blow up a good conspiracy story. Some read the National Enquirer, I prefer to look for UFO’s (unidentified fried observers).

Let’s say you work with potentially contaminated stuff, or work in a contaminated area. You wear a Tyvek jumpsuit, nitrile gloves (in blue or black) and vinyl booties. When you are done you chuck all that stuff in a drum, which gets compressed later and sealed.

Once you are degowned the HP checks your hands and clothes for activity.

This drum full of coveralls and booties gets stored somewhere until they have lots of them, then they are shipped off.

These are the drums in the “fabric type buildings”.

It’s actually cheaper to do this than to find out how much contamination there is and sort out the clean stuff from the hot stuff.

I’ve done this, at Los Alamos, Sandia and Oak Ridge, so some of the plastic gloves near that fire might be mine!

Oh! Fair New Mexico, we love, we love you so,
The grandest state we know — NEW MEXICO!

We used to sing this song in elementary school in Las Vegas NM in the early 60's. In wintertime the teachers reminded us not to eat the snow during recess. Los Alamos was just over the mountains from us. Good times. ;o)

BS.

Unless the spent fuel is stored in Teepee’s, Grass or traditional wooden structures there is no danger.

They are stored in hard shelters impervious to flame from a forest fire.

Would a brush fire produce enough heat to cause harm even if you put the plutonium in the flames? I seen the brush fires around here and soft metals such as aluminum melt but harder metals such as an iron fence will have the paint burnt off.

During WWII, a fellow named “Ernie” (his full name is still classified) lathed the uranium and plutonium used to make the first atomic bombs.

While machining the plutonium, the lathe shattered, embedding approximately 200 milligrams of weapons-grade plutonium under “Ernie’s” skin.

Last I heard of “Ernie” was in 1992. He would set off alarms everytime he entered a nuclear facility. The man smoked cigars daily and drank a bottle of hard liquor every week but he seemed unaffected by the plutonium in his body.

So much for it being the most toxic material on earth!

Who "made up" this headline ?

I watched the lab director say it was transuranic contact waste.

Gloves, kleenex, gowns, masks, booties, screwdrivers, wrenches etc...
