Description Transcript (31 pages) of interview by Danielle Endres with Judy Treichel on November 13, 2009
Abstract Treichel was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She discusses her background, upbringing, ethical influences, and general relationship to nuclear issues. She explains that she began working on nuclear testing issues, but shifted to nuclear waste in the late 1980s, when Yucca Mountain became the sole contender for a national nuclear waste repository. Treichel describes her position on the Nevada Nuclear Waste Task Force. She then discusses the role of the public in the nuclear waste siting process, the problems with nuclear waste, the potential solutions to nuclear waste, and the future of the Yucca Mountain repository (including a discussion of President Obama's pledge to stop Yucca Mountain and create a Blue Ribbon Commission to study nuclear waste siting options).Nuclear Technology Project.
