The mysterious, and until very recently, ongoing radiation leak at the Carlsbad nuclear waste site in New Mexico was most likely caused by changing the kitty litter that’s mixed with the toxic waste.
According to Fox News:
Jim Conca, a scientist who worked at the facility from 2000 to 2010, told the newspaper he believes a change from non-organic to organic litter caused a chemical reaction inside a waste drum, releasing the radioactive isotopes.
New Mexico Environment Department Secretary Ryan Flynn confirmed to the paper on Monday that he has heard Department of Energy officials discuss the possibility that kitty litter may have been to blame for the radiation leak. Flynn said it is one of many theories and nothing is certain at this time.
In a statement Tuesday, the DOE said only that it is investigating “all possible scenarios.”
Isn’t it comforting to know that all we have to do to avoid a nightmare nuclear radiation leak scenario is make sure that the government can get hold of the right type of kitty litter?
