Abstract

Nuclear storage in the United States is on the decline and will only continue to worsen without action. As the current system of storage employs cooling pools with crumbling cladding and water loss, a multitude of failures are occurring and could spell a disaster 60 times larger than that of Chernobyl. While the government has attempted efforts, all have been denied. We propose publishing an Opinion Editorial to the Junior State of America’s website to help promote awareness and discussion. An Opinion Editorial posted on such a platform will inform politically active students about our issue, therefore increasing our chances of effective activism through their own well established program. This plan is a starting form of activism in effort to hopefully spark formal debate and policy discussion about the issue.
