The US NRC visited this blog post 2 months ago, on Oct. 8th. They still have not corrected this typo, which endangers the lives of many. Was it really a typo then or on purpose? Obviously, they give even less of a damn about the health and safety of Americans than even the most skeptical thought. [As of Monday, 25 May 2015, the typo remains uncorrected.]

As you will see, an error in the US NRC “library” about the “Licensing Requirement for Land Disposal of Radioactive Waste“, is a simple typographical error with potentially dangerous consequences. Actually, it appears not even a typo but an unchecked cut and paste. Perhaps by the time you read this it will be already rectified, but the screen shot is below. (Update: As of Friday, Nov. 14th, 9 am ET-DC time, it still has not been corrected! During the day of Oct. 8th and 9th this blog was visited by the NRC. This error has gone from looking like an accident to looking really bad to looking intentional.)

However, this sort of simple oversight could have led to the disaster at WIPP.

This simple error, in fact, could allow waste considered too radioactive for WIPP to go into low level radioactive waste…
