Imperial College's modelling has been consistently poor at predicting the outcomes of the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet for some reason Neil Ferguson and the ICL team remain respected authorities on epidemic modelling.

Fracking debris considered too radioactive even for waste site

category international | environment | other press author Sunday April 28, 2013 14:05author by Turing. - Donner Party Report this post to the editors

Fracking is so very safe. Full text at url.

A truck carrying drill cuttings from a fracking site set off a radiation alarm at a landfill in Pennsylvania. Emitting gamma radiation ten times higher than the permitted level, the waste was rejected by the landfill.

After the alarm went off, the MAX Environmental Technologies truck was immediately quarantined and sent back to the Marcellus Shale fracking site it had come from in Greene County, Va. The 159-acre Pennsylvania landfill site accepts residual and hazardous waste, but the cuttings were too radioactive for the site to safely dispose.

The Pennsylvania landfill, located in South Huntingdon, rejects waste that emits more than 10 microerm per hour of radiation. The fracking materials were found to emit 96 microerm per hour of Radium 226 – a rate that is 84 times higher than the Environmental Protection Agency’s air-pollution standard and ten times higher than the landfill’s permitted level, Forbes reports.
