Dangerous Welds At Los Alamos National Laboratory
Nuclear weapons facility, Los Alamos National Laboratory, a Nuclear Accident Waiting To Happen?
As President and Vice President, what are YOU going to do to protect the citizens of the United States?
Very possibly, according to Lead Quality Assurance (QA) Auditor, Don Brown; "it's peoples lives!"
The pictures below are actual photos of 15-welds at Los Alamos National Laboratory in just two buildings out of approximately 2,300-bad weld pictures taken before LANL stopped the audit in process and let Mr. Brown go. The Nuclear Industry must adhere to the International Standards of the "American Society of Mechanical Engineers" (ASME) and or American Welding Society (AWS) in welding processes according to the fabrication preformed. This means that the welders at LANL must be certified in those processes, of which LANL has no records of any certifications of their welders, according to Mr. Brown's Audit.
"Certification is a Certified statement accompanied with a Certificate of Certification a document testifying to the truth of a fact, a document testifying that one has fulfilled certain legal requirements, to verify and confirm, to endorse officially to guarantee as good by a statement to that effect stamped on it's face, attest, witness, accredit, approve, sanction."
Though I no longer work in the welding industry due to an industrial accident, I passed my first certification in 1967. Obtained 6G Certifications on Aluminum, Mild Steel and Stainless Steel, the processes included Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), also known as "Stick" welding, Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), also known as tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, and, oxy-acetylene welding, also know as "Gas" welding. As a former certified welder, with many years of experience and knowing what is acceptable or not as industry standards, I can say without reserve, these welds are an accident waiting to happen!
What IF - News Alert - Los Alamos National Laboratory Disaster: Today LANL suffered a earthquake under their CMRR (Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Replacement) building resulting in the total failure of the welds which have caused a catastrophic plutonium reaction that spread to several burn pits and the Depleted Uranium stock piles. This event killed thousands within a radius of 150-miles, in all directions instantly. That's not the worse news, the radiation fallout from this Nuclear Weapons Facility sent radioactive particles into the air were they are being carried by winds across states and international borders. The radioactive particles are now contaminating the food sources and ground water aquifers throughout the United States.
[Could it happen? You be the judge.]
Comment: "We" would have only ourselves to blame, "We" have not made sure our leaders protect the interests of THE PEOPLE, instead, OUR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS protect BIG BUSINESS GR$$D!
Will there be a tomorrow???
