Tom Carpenter is the Executive Director of Hanford Challenge ( ), whose purpose is to transform the Hanford nuclear site into a model of safe and effective cleanup.  Hanford Challenge works closely with insiders and whistleblowers at Hanford, and keeps on top of developments there daily. Tom discusses the present state of Hanford cleanup, where things are
changing for the better, and where we are still stuck in old and not-so-useful patterns.  He has spent decades as an attorney representing whistleblowers at Hanford and other nuclear sites and has authored numerous articles and reports on nuclear risks, and worked to change public policy.  On August 17, Tom publicly revealed that a double-walled tank at Hanford is leaking a large, solid mass.  In this talk he will educate and engage us in efforts to support whistleblowers and protect others working to clean up Hanford and nuclear threats to the environment and public health.  Tom will also help us grapple with how the meltdowns at Fukushima are affecting our region, and explore our options for reducing current and future nuclear risks.
