(USNEF) – Oftentimes it’s interesting to utilize their story headline, “Preparing for a renewed battle to keep Yucca Mountain nuke-free”.
Absolutely amazing, in a 03-07-15 Las Vegas Sun Yucca story, by Ms. Amber Phillips. This is a perfect example of mainstream media biased reporting. Ms. Phillips is among our USNEF contacts of Nevada and national media USNEF shares Press Releases, Newsletters and Announcements about our US Nuclear Energy Foundation. She and nearly 100 other media sources receive such postings, an IRS certified 501 (c)(3) Public Charity providing educational symposiums to grassroots citizens. There is absolutely no indication in this article which references our US Nuclear Energy Foundation which advocates apolitical education about the Yucca Mountain facility.
Over the past 10+ years this foundation has contacted every legislature, including the current 2015 session, every County Commission in the State, among business, educational and many service club organizations. Yet, this newspaper is un-responsive that there are any grassroots organizations or people in the State of Nevada who advocate an educational science & engineering overview of the Yucca program verses its political misrepresentation rather than the truth.
Not only is the media aware of the US Nuclear Energy Foundation, the Governor and every member of the upper management of his administration have received dozens of letters and memos from USNEF and our like-minded supporters. To “miss” this seems rather intentional. The LVSUN mentions the positions of Congressman Amodei and Shimkus on Yucca Mountain and neglects to mention that they attended our (YES) Yucca Educational Symposium in NOV-2013 in Reno. A full day symposium with the industry scientists and engineers fully capable of answering technical questions. Through a personal invitation of one of our members, Governor Sandoval was invited to attend . . . his office indicated that “they had no one on staff qualified to attend”. If this is the case, why is Nevada’s bureaucracy using taxpayer funds to oppose the program? Ms. Phillips story also neglected to mention that 8 or 9 of Nevada’s 17 Counties (50%) have signed petitions recommending the completion of the Yucca Mountain Application
Study by the DOE. There is plenty to demonstrate that mainstream media bias through political misguidance has been responsible for the ill-informed voice to Nevada’s grassroots citizens. The US Nuclear Energy Foundation and its supporters are working to correct this injustice through grassroots public education.
