Description Transcript (38 pages) of interview by Danielle Endres with Steve Frishman on November 13, 2009
Abstract Frishman (b. 1944) was born in Washington D.C. He is a technical consultant for the law firm representing the State of Nevada in its contention of the Department of Energy's application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for a license for the Yucca Mountain repository. Prior to this, Frishman worked as a Technical-Policy Coordinator for the Nevada Agency for Nuclear Projects. He discusses graduate school in Texas, running a local newspaper, serving as a commissioner on the Texas Coastal and Marine Council, and working for the Texas state government when a site in Texas was being considered for a high level nuclear waste repository. He first came to Nevada to work as a consultant for the Nevada Agency for Nuclear Projects, and was involved in the fight against the Yucca Mountain repository. Fishman describes some of the technical problems with the Yucca Mountain site, and the differences between Department of Energy science and independent science on the site. He ends by taking about some of the alternatives to the Yucca Mountain site. Nuclear Technology Project. Interviewer: Danielle Endres
