Nuclear Whistleblower: “The Books Are Being Cooked” Fukushima In America Will Happen

026-290x217
The Intel Hub By Alex Thomas July 19, 2011 A longtime nuclear whistleblower, as well as a new report from the nuclear watchdog agency, have shed light on some startling flaws at The Watts Bar Nuclear plant in Spring City, Tennessee. The NRC report highlighted over 24 vulnerabilities after assessing the nations nuclear power plants after the Japanese earthquake and subsequent full scale nuclear disaster. Ann Harris, a former Watts Bar employee and long time whistleblower, was interviewed during a CBS investigation. In the interview she revealed startling information that the nuclear industry, as well as certain officials in the NRC, do not want you to hear.

“Basically the books are being cooked, people are saying things they are not doing, that they swear under oath they have been done and they just aren’t done.”

When asked if a Fukushima type scenario could happen in America, Harris had this to say.

“You can see a Fukushima happening here in the U.S.” So it’s not a matter of ‘if,’ it’s a matter of – “When,” Harris finished the sentence.

According to CBS, the report included these vulnerabilities: – a lack of emergency responder training – faulty control panels – malfunctioning communications equipment – and issues with portable backup diesel generator Unfortunately these are very similar to the problems that led to 3 full scale meltdowns after the massive earthquake that rocked Japan. As a nuclear whistleblower for our 15 years who has won a record 6 lawsuits against Watts Bar, Harris has seen her fair share of threats and what she described seemed to be attempted murder.

“They ran me off the road, they wired my car for fireboming, they dropped the universal joint off my car”

So is Ann Harris correct? Is a major nuclear disaster in American on the horizon? Officials at the nuclear power plant in question have claimed that these reports are inaccurate and that Watts Bar is safe. To many, reassurance from the nuclear industry falls on deaf ears considering the fact that almost every single radiation release on the planet has been covered up to a certain extent. How can we trust an industry that is being accused by a prominent, credible whistleblower of intimidation and possible attempted murder? As we have reported in the past, the NRC and the nuclear industry are riddled with corruption on par or above the OIL cartels. Even though the NRC recently released a report that was critical of Watts Bar, history shows that most likely the problem will be ignored and moved out of sight and out of mind. As the nuclear gamble continues, the people of the world must continue to expose the dangers of nuclear power plant flaws in the hopes that they may be fixed before another big one hits.
