Yucca Mountain? Not at any price

Wake up, Nevada. First our country used you as a nuclear testing ground, causing a lot of people to get cancer, and now the government wants to store hazardous waste.

It’s about time our state and our governor tell the United States government where to go. Not this time. We’ve already paid our dues. Go find another place to destroy.

Our governor should tell them that those waste trucks will never cross our borders. Our lives and the lives of our children are worth fighting for.

And for those who feel we should do it for the right price, let me ask you: What price is enough for your life and the lives of your loved ones?
