Palomares nuclear waste removal to be a secret

The US – Spanish nuclear waste cleanup op in Palomares is to go ahead, but the protocol is to be kept a state secret it seems.

But the budget is there – the US has committed to spending 500 MILLION dollars on the project!

However, Spain will have to reimburse some of the cost. How much is not known.

But don’t expect miracles. So far, all that has been officially agreed is for a joint commission to be setup to examine the best way of removing the stuff. No timetable has been agreed, as it depends upon “resources, funds and personnel” according to the Yanks.

So, basically – a lot of noise, some promises and quite a bit on the never never. Ah well. It’s all good for the forthcoming elections….
