Bob Sarvey: We have achieved ... a major victory.
(San Francisco) March 6, 2007 - Bob Sarvey, a Tracy, California
citizen/activist looked at the plan of the Lawrence Livermore Nuclear
Weapons Lab and said that it was wrong. Today the giant nuclear
weapons lab waited until the last minute and withdrew the
controversial nuclear radiation spreading proposal.
Bob Sarvey said in a prepared statement late Tuesday afternoon, March
6, 2007 "I just received a call from the head man at the San Joaquin
Valley Air Pollution Control district, Seyed Saderin. He has decided
under intense pressure from the Lab to cancel the Site 300 permit and
the hearing is off. WE have achieved a major but temporary victory. I
am sure that the lab will try again and the DU explosions continue
throughout the country and the world. But tonight let us savor one
The controversial and secretive Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab
detonates in the open air about 200 radioactive "dirty bombs" a year
creating deadly and radioactive uranium gas in the heavily populated
San Francisco Bay and Monterey Bay Areas of California. About 10
million people live and work within the large metropolitan areas.
The University of California "managed" Weapons Lab had requested to go
from detonating 1000 pounds of radioactive uranium and tritium bombs a
year to 8000 pounds a year on November 12, 2006. The request was
approved by the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control Board in
nearby Modesto, California.
Bob Sarvey objected and filed an appeal. So did a large housing
development near the radioactive bomb site in Tracy, California. The
developer also withdrew from the case today, March 6, 2007.
Manhattan Project and Nuclear Weapons Lab retired staff scientist
Marion Fulk said today about the withdrawal by the Nuclear Weapons Lab
"Now they can put those deadly radioactive explosions that release
uranium and tritium into the atmosphere underground."
