Nuclear I.Q. Test

CAN YOU PASS THE NUCLEAR WASTE I.Q. TEST ?

TRUE FALSE
1 Uranium is very heavy and weighs more than gold.
2 People who think nuclear energy is “safe” and “green” don’t understand the science.
3 After Fukishima, the incidence of Cancer on the West Coast was increased among children.
4 In the event of a radioactive release at an operating nuclear reactor, taking an iodine pill can prevent children from developing cancer.
5 In January of 2018, millions of pounds of high-level nuclear waste will be buried on the beach, at San Onofre, in delicate thin-walled steel canisters.
6 The canisters that will store the waste at San Onofre are guaranteed by the manufacturer to last 25-years.
7 The waste stored at the new beachfront San Onofre nuclear waste dump is toxic to humans for more than three-million years.
8 The publicly-funded bailout of the San Onofre Nuclear power plant cost the average SDG&E and Southern California Edison customer at least $1,600.00.
9 The steel canisters that contain the waste are several feet wide and measure up to twenty feet high. Each canister weighs hundreds of thousands of pounds and contains more nuclear waste than what was released at Chernobyl.
10 Some of the canisters are so hot when they are first filled that they can vaporize all the hair off of your body, if you stand within a few feet of them.
