I knew it was dangerous, but didn't realize it was number one on the list. I lived there for 14 months. By the way, I drew the construction documents for the dome/tomb and our group built and filled it with 111,000 cubic yards of radioactive contaminated materials.

Four Year Anniversary
 
I just thought I would mark today with a post I made four years ago, welcoming everyone on board just a few minutes after we flipped the switch and launched Google+. 

Over the course of the week that followed, I decided to try something a bit crazy and not really "traditional Google:" I spent lots of time running around the service, talking to everyone I encountered, and welcoming them aboard. What I found was that there were tremendous numbers of people out there who wanted to talk: not just about the service, but about all the things they cared about in their lives, from their pets to geopolitics. And the results changed my life.

It's been an amazing four years here: I've seen the project grow from a crazy idea to a giant, thriving community, spread around the world.  I've had so many conversations on so many subjects, and learned so much in the process, that I can't even count. I've learned to write much more effectively, and what it is to have a real conversation about incredibly sensitive subjects where people nonetheless treat each other with respect and seriousness. I've made an amazing group of friends here, people I love and trust and talk to every day. And I even met the love of my life, my brilliant and beloved wife, through the service.

So looking back on four years of what we've built here, I can say: this is going really well. I'm exceptionally glad to have met all of you, and to have had some part in building this community we share, and I'm looking forward to seeing where the next four years take us!

I sent NAAV's National Commander and National Vice Commander an email this morning. Hope Enewetak Atoll Atomic Cleanup Veterans get some positive feedback soon! I encourage everyone to email them as well. Let them know you support the NAAV (National Association of Atomic Veterans) and want them to help us in our struggles with the VA and Congress. Or more specifically, we want Congress to change our "occupational exposure" to "radiation-risk exposure" to ionizing radiation.
Glad to have caught the attention of Francis Grahlfs of the NAAV back in March of 2014. Here is the email he sent me last year: "Francis Grahlfs To:...

The Cactus Dome on the island of Runit contains 111,000 cubic yards of radioactive debris encased in concrete. It was designed to slow the migration of radiation from this tomb. Concrete "breathes" air and water. It also expands and contracts. The "keys" built into the structure allows this to happen. Imagine it as a huge blob of concrete sitting in a huge hole filled with scrap metal and soils poisoned with plutonium and other ionizing radiation elements. You've all seen concrete trucks dump a pile of leftover cement on the ground? Imagine that blob of concrete being 55 foot high, 70 feet wider than the length of a football field across and sitting in a 25 foot deep hole. I know, I drew the plans so Enewetak Atoll Atomic Debris Cleanup Veterans could build it. It isn't going anywhere anytime soon. However, it will only lose one half of its radioactivity over 20,000 years from now.
The Runit Dome on the Marshall Islands houses 111,000 cubic yards of radioactive waste leftover from US nuclear testing in the Pacific. It’s also leaking.

Looking forward to what Journalists have to say about the Cactus Dome. I prepared the construction documents so Atomic Cleanup Veterans could build it to contain 111,000 cubic yards of radioactive debris removed from the 40 islands at Enewetak Atoll.
 
From 1946-1958, the US detonated 67 nuclear bombs on the Pacific nation of the Marshall Islands (after displacing its indigenous people). The explosive yield was the equivalent of 1.6 Hiroshima bombs detonated every day over the course of 12 years.

The US then tried to clean up its mess by mixing the top layer of contaminated soil with radioactive debris, dumping it into a crater on one of the islands, and covering it up with an 18-inch thick concrete cap, known as Runit Dome. Locals call it The Tomb.

Except now, it's starting to leak. And rising sea levels are threatening to submerge or tear open the dome, spilling its radioactive contents into the ocean.

It's "a tragic confluence of nuclear testing and climate change," and it's only the beginning of a shocking story reported by our GroundTruth Project correspondents Coleen Jose, Kim Wall, & Jan Hendrik Hinzel. Read the drumroll to their forthcoming deep dive in The Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jul/03/runit-dome-pacific-radioactive-waste

Looking forward to reading "Formation of the Missing Man" by Ernest T. Davis II. Ernest likes to give readers a perspective we may not have envisioned prior to reading his books.
