Feds secretly shipped plutonium from SC

(NEWSER) – The Department of Energy revealed on Wednesday that
it secretly shipped weapons-grade plutonium from South Carolina
to a nuclear security site in Nevada months ago despite the
state's protests. The Justice Department notified a federal
judge in Reno that the government trucked in the radioactive
material to store at the site 70 miles north of Las Vegas before
Nevada first asked a court to block the move in November.
Department lawyers said the previously classified information
about the shipment from South Carolina can be disclosed now
because enough time has passed to protect national security.
They didn't specify when the one-half metric ton of plutonium
was transferred.

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak said he's "beyond outraged by this
completely unacceptable deception." He announced at a hastily
called news conference in Carson City late Wednesday the state
is now seeking another court order to block any more shipments
of plutonium as it pursues "any and all legal remedies,"
including contempt of court orders against the federal
government, the AP reports. The newly elected Democrat said he's
exploring options for the plutonium that has already arrived and
is working with Nevada's congressional delegation to fight back
against the US government's "reckless disregard" for the safety
of Nevadans. (Japan isn't sure what to do with a stockpile of 47
metric tons of plutonium.)

It all sounds to me like a classic case of NIMBY psychosis.
