NOAA Declares 2020 the Second Hottest Year on Record, a Very Close Second

Carbon dioxide concentrations (dashed blue line) have increased steadily while annual average temperature anomalies (black line) changed very little from 1950 to 1970 and from 1998 to 2014 (red line).

Carbon dioxide concentrations (dashed blue line) have increased steadily while annual average temperature anomalies (black line) changed very little from 1950 to 1970 and from 1998 to 2014 (red line).

Global warming from 1970 to 1998 is closely associated with ozone depletion caused by increases in tropospheric chlorine from CFCs.

Global warming from 1970 to 1998 is closely associated with ozone depletion caused by increases in tropospheric chlorine from CFCs.

If ozone depletion is the cause of observed warming, then global temperatures should decrease slowly as the ozone layer recovers (green line). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicts major warming in the future based on greenhouse-warming theory.

If ozone depletion is the cause of observed warming, then global temperatures should decrease slowly as the ozone layer recovers (green line). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicts major warming in the future based on greenhouse-warming theory.

This observation documents global warming but suggests that increases in greenhouse-gas emissions may not be the best explanation

Don’t you think my fellow scientists need to look at these very clear data carefully before we waste tens of trillions of dollars trying to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions?”

— Dr. Peter L. Ward

JACKSON, WYOMING, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Detailed changes in global temperature trends since 1950 show a remarkably close correlation with changes in the ozone layer” according to Dr. Peter L. Ward, a geophysicist who worked 27 years with the U.S. Geological Survey. Ward was a leader in establishing a major national research program. He has testified before Congress, chaired a committee at the White House, worked on a committee for vice-president Gore, published many scientific papers, and received two national awards for educating the public about science.

“What is surprising,” according to Ward, “is that greenhouse-warming theory cannot explain these sudden changes in global temperature without a great deal of arm waving. Furthermore, no scientist has ever shown in the laboratory that increases in greenhouse-gas concentrations can actually cause warming of Earth’s surface.”

Concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have increased every year since 1950 at ever-increasing rates. Average global surface temperatures, on the other hand, have changed much more irregularly.

All four major analyses of global temperatures by NASA, NOAA, the United Kingdom’s Met Office, and Berkeley Earth show that temperatures remained relatively constant from 1950 to 1970, rose suddenly from 1970 to 1998, remained relatively constant from 1998 to 2014, rose very rapidly from 2014 to 2016, decreased substantially in 2018 but rose again in 2019 and 2020. Each of these sudden changes in temperature correlates quite closely with sudden changes in the thickness of the ozone layer.

The ozone layer, 9 to 22 miles above Earth, absorbs nearly all ultraviolet-B (UV-B) radiation from Sun, protecting life on Earth from this high-energy radiation that causes sunburn, skin cancer, cataracts, and mutations.

“What is critically important,” Ward explains, “is that when a molecule of ozone absorbs ultraviolet-B radiation, the molecule is dissociated—it comes apart. The molecular pieces fly away from each other at high velocity, much like the ends of a snapped rubber band. Dissociation converts molecular bond energy holding the molecule together directly and completely into linear velocity, which is directly proportional to air temperature, warming the ozone layer. The molecular pieces can then recombine, so that dissociation will continue as long as UV-B radiation is available.”

A depleted ozone layer absorbs less UV-B, growing cooler as observed. More UV-B is then measured to reach Earth where it dissociates ground level ozone pollution, warming Earth’s surface. Warming since 1970 was nearly twice as much in the northern hemisphere, home to 90% of humanity and, therefore, home to most ground-level ozone pollution. Warming since 1970 was greatest on the Antarctic Peninsula, where ozone depletion was greatest.

UV-B radiation penetrates oceans more than a hundred feet, raising ocean heat content very efficiently since 1970, an observation that greenhouse-warming theory cannot explain.

Around 1970, ozone depletion began to increase especially above Antarctica, forming the Antarctic ozone hole in mid to late winter. The greatest depletion of ozone over Antarctica occurred in 1998.

During the 1960s, chemical companies manufactured chlorofluorocarbon gases (CFCs) for use as spray-can propellants, refrigerants, foam-blowing agents, and solvents. CFCs were safer to use than alternatives because they were unusually inert.

In 1974, scientists discovered that CFCs in the stratosphere can be broken down by solar ultraviolet radiation, releasing atoms of chlorine. One atom of chlorine can destroy 100,000 molecules of ozone. Their work earned earned the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1995.

In 1985, with discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole, scientists and political leaders moved quickly to pass the United Nations Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, which took effect in 1989, severely limiting manufacturing of CFCs. By 1993, concentrations of CFCs in the atmosphere stopped increasing. By 1995, global average ozone depletion stopped increasing. By 1998, global average temperatures stopped increasing.

Humans had caused global warming beginning around 1970 by manufacturing CFCs. Humans had stopped the increase in global warming by passing the Montreal Protocol.

In 2014, the volcano Bárðarbunga in central Iceland began erupting basaltic lava flows, covering an area of 33 square miles within six months, the largest basaltic eruption since 1784. Average global temperatures began rising at five-times the rate observed between 1970 and 1998, reaching a maximum in 2016.

Temperatures increased by volcanic eruptions normally recover within a few years. Temperatures cooled until 2018 when Kilauea volcano in Hawaii erupted basaltic lava flows from the lower East Rift. These lava flows were much more extensive than typical in Hawaii, covering 39 square miles of land in three months. The rate of lava extrusion was nearly the same as for Bárðarbunga, but the eruption lasted half as long. Average global temperatures began rising again, causing 2020 to be nearly as warm as 2016.

Basaltic lavas contain exceptionally large amounts of chlorine and bromine gases. It only takes a small amount of these gases to reach the lower stratosphere to deplete the ozone layer. Ozone depletion is observed following most volcanic eruptions, peaking two years after the eruption stops.

Explosive volcanic eruptions cause ozone depletion but also eject water vapor and sulfur dioxide into the lower stratosphere forming an aerosol or mist that reflects and disperses sunlight, causing net global cooling for two to four years. Climate is warmed by basaltic lava flows and cooled by explosive eruptions.

Throughout Earth history, major, sudden global warming is contemporaneous with major basaltic lava flows—the larger the flow, the greater the warming.

It is the Bárðarbunga eruption in Iceland in 2014 that appears to have caused 2016 to be the hottest year on record. It was the Kilauea eruption in Hawaii during 2018 that appears to have caused 2020 to be nearly as hot.

If ozone depletion is the major cause of global warming, global temperatures are expected to decrease slowly throughout this century. Major warming predicted by computer climate models based on greenhouse-warming theory will not and cannot occur.

“Don’t you think my fellow scientists need to look at these very clear data carefully before we waste tens of trillions of dollars trying to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions?”

Petraco Oil Company Shows Commitment to Sustainability in Energy Provision

Petraco Oil Company shows commitment to sustainability in energy provision

Petraco Oil Company shows commitment to sustainability in energy provision

Petraco Oil Company is one of the oldest independent trading companies in the World, priding itself on great expertise and strong connection with its customers.

Everything is Energy and that is all there is to it. ”

— Albert Einstein

LUGANO, TESSIN, SWITZERLAND, January 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Petraco Oil Company has signalled its commitment to a sustainable, low carbon future. The company is currently in the process of releasing its annual Responsibility Report which will put forward Petraco’s environmental, social and governance performance for 2020. The report is likely to present the Group’s consolidated emissions in the context of its global environmental and climate change policy as well as the company’s commitment to the Paris Agreement. The latter was signed in 2016 and shows the willingness of several members of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to keep the long-term increase in global average temperature well below 2°C (3.6°F).

Many international trading companies have also produced Sustainability Reports in recent years and many have been mapped these against the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Whilst the global demand for energy is expected to increase from the current levels there is increasing awareness that that traditional energy should increasingly be replaced by clean energy resources. Other international traders have in recent years invested in several sustainable projects in an effort to diversify, including LNG (a commodity with reduced carbon emissions), electricity, solar and wind power.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) World Energy Outlook 2018 stated that oil and gas would remain part of the energy system for decades to come, predicting that oil and gas together would provide 48% of the total final energy demand in 2040. Thus, the industry is likely to continue to have a global role in supplying affordable, reliable energy that is essential for economic development, quality of life, healthy livelihoods and eradication of poverty. Equally this role needs to support the transition to a lower carbon future.

For commodity trading houses in particular, the bulk of their emissions appears to come from their shipping activities. Commodity traders often purchase a commodity at a particular location, load it onto a vessel to then transport the goods to another location where those goods are sold. In the process those vessels use bunker fuel which creates carbon emissions. The International Transport Forum (ITF), part of the OECD system, estimates that international trade-related freight transport currently accounts for around 30% of all transport related CO2 emissions from fuel combustion, and more than 7% of global emissions. Shipping emissions are projected to increase by 240% in the ITF’s baseline scenario. Shipping emissions are dealt with in the context of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). Through the IMO, countries have reached agreements on improving fuel efficiency of ships, mainly through ship design, and efficiency standards.

On 1 January 2020, a new global cap by the IMO on sulphur content in marine fuels came into effect. The new regulations, known as IMO 2020, mandate a maximum sulphur content of 0.5% in marine fuels globally. The driver of this change is the need to reduce the air pollution created in the shipping industry by reducing the sulphur content of the fuels that ships use. The limit for sulphur in fuel oil used on board ships operating outside designated emission control areas is reduced to 0.5% m/m (mass by mass). This will significantly reduce the amount of sulphur oxides emanating from ships and should have major health and environmental benefits for the planet, particularly for populations living close to port and coasts. The IMO estimates that the new legislation will lead to a 77% drop in overall sulphur oxide (SOx) emissions from ships – annual reduction of approximately 8.5 million metric tonnes SOx. This may be achieved on vessels by either supplying high sulphur fuel oil for ships fitted with on-board scrubbers, or by directly ensuring vessels are bunkered with either marine gasoil or low sulphur fuel oil.

The IMO regulations are a welcomed step towards a greener future. These, coupled with greater efforts to reduce corporates’ footprints, will hopefully pave the way for a more sustainable future in energy provision.

Our Roofers in RI

The Rhode Island Roofers are at the forefront of the roofing industry bringing expertise and projections for the year 2021 in the roofing and solar industries.

PROVIDENCE, RI, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Rhode Island Roofers are excited to announce to valued residential roofing and commercial roofing customers the roofing trends expected to hit the industry throughout 2021.

The GAF master elite certified roofing professionals have dedicated their time and energy to learning, researching, and implementing these advancements, and now is the time to execute it all across the region. The company encourages those interested in discovering more about what's available to contact them for a complimentary consultation today.

"We care number one about providing our clients with the latest roofing trends and improvements as soon as they hit the market. We know that everything from eco-friendly roofing to recycled roofing tiles changes rapidly within the industry, and it's our job to stay on top of the developments. With a somewhat slow season last year due to state-wide lockdowns, we hunkered down and did all the required training to be at the top of our game for 2021," was stated by the proud owner and operator of The Rhode Island Roofers.

Green energy and solar panels have been a trend for many years, and it's expected they will continue on the upward trajectory. Relatively new to the industry are solar tiles in Rhode Island. These are different from the large solar panels but offer added visual appeal by being implemented directly into the roofing shingles. People are passionate about saving money and protecting the planet. With solar tiles added to roofing systems, customers attain complete financial freedom from monthly utility bills. It's also how fewer fossil fuels get burned and emitted into the atmosphere. It simultaneously cuts down on pollution and preserves the ozone.

Recycled roofing tiles in Rhode Island are another method of using eco-friendly ways to protect structures of all shapes and sizes. The roofing trend has been around for several years, but it's one that can be expected to continue to grow throughout 2021 and beyond. Recycled roofing tiles are a combination of plastic, sand, and a colorant. The mixture goes through cycles of blending and mixing before being shaped into roof tiles and cooled. They are environmentally safe, durable, and have a life expectancy longer than that of metal roofing. Recycled roof types are shockproof, do not absorb moisture, and are simple to clean. Many are turning to this roofing trend because of the low-maintenance and reasonable price point. The Rhode Island Roofers are learning about recycled roofing tiles each day. They are prepared to do roof installations for anyone interested in an eco-friendly roofing replacement or new roof construction completed.

Finally, an update in 2021 The Rhode Island Roofers has been updating themselves on are roofing color trends for Rhode Island. So many think of roofing shingles and go for basic black, brown, or grey hues. However, the color selected for a roof installation can significantly impact curb appeal and home value. At the top of the list for roofing color trends in Rhode Island for 2021 are light and soft greens, beige and off white, light and pale blues, and light brown and taupe. Deciding what color roof shingle goes best with a structure depends on the siding and other exterior feature shades implemented. For example, darker roofs are suggested for red buildings, while white houses create the most significant aesthetic appeal with primary colors like green, red, or blue.

One of the GAF Master Elite certified roofing contractors stated, "The only way to know what roofing color trend in Rhode Island will be most suitable is by making an appointment for a complimentary consultation. We are trained in both roofing services and design, and we love going over the plethora of options with our customers. Many are surprised at just how many selections are available, making it equally enjoyable for them and us. Not only that, but it's an excellent way to build a relationship with our clientele. They get to know us, and we form a mutual trust that's essential to have the most stress-free and desirable experience for what can otherwise seem daunting and overwhelming."

Eco-friendly roofing, solar tiles, and recycled roofing tiles are just a fraction of the trends that The Rhode Island Roofers have studied to this point. Watch for more roofing color trends, green roofs, and metal roofing progressions in the coming months through The Rhode Island Roofers.

Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center Appeals to the Family of a Navy Veteran with Mesothelioma to Call to Attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste-Get Very Specific Answers About Compensation Rather Than a "free' Booklet

"Mesothelioma compensation is typically based on the specifics of how, where and when a person with mesothelioma was exposed to asbestos as Erik Karst will explain at 800-714-0303. ”

— Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center

BOISE, IDAHO, USA, January 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center is appealing to the wife or adult son-daughter of a Navy Veteran or person with mesothelioma in Idaho to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to get specific answers to their questions about mesothelioma compensation. Mesothelioma compensation is typically based on the specifics of how, where and when a person with mesothelioma was exposed to asbestos as Erik Karst will explain. It is also incredibly important for a person with mesothelioma in Idaho to try to list specific instances of places where they were exposed to asbestos. It is this type a specific information that might dramatically increase a person's mesothelioma compensation. www.karstvonoiste.com/

The group says, "We do not want a Navy Veteran or person with mesothelioma rolling the dice on a lawyer to pursue compensation and we are warning an individual with mesothelioma in Idaho top start signing up for 'free' booklets, kits, guides, calculators or other nonsense unless you want lawyers you have never heard of before calling you-or stopping by your home. If a Navy Veteran or person with mesothelioma in Idaho or their family want information about mesothelioma compensation and or what is involved-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. We are certain you will be glad you did." www.karstvonoiste.com/

The Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to emphasize theirs is a statewide initiative available to a diagnosed victim anywhere in Idaho including communities such as Boise, Nampa, Meridian, Wallace, Post Falls, Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Coeur d’Alene, Twin Falls, or Lewiston. https://Idaho.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Center also puts a huge premium on treatment options for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma. For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Idaho the Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital:

Michigan US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate Recommends the Lawyers at Karst von Oiste for a Navy Veteran who Has Lung Cancer-and Who Had Asbestos Exposure in the Navy-Compensation May Exceed $100,000

"We recommend the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste for a Navy Veteran who has lung cancer-and who decades ago had significant exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard.”

— Michigan US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate

DETROIT , MICHIGAN , USA, January 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Michigan US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "We recommend the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste for a Navy Veteran who has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer-and who decades ago had significant exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard. The financial compensation for a person like this may exceed $100,000 for a Veteran who served for three or four years. For a career Navy Veteran like this the compensation might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and the claim does not involve suing the navy as the lawyers at Karst von Oiste are always happy to explain at 800-714-0303.

"The Navy Veteran with lung cancer we are trying to identify is over 60 years old, he served in the 1960s or 1970s and his asbestos exposure took place on the ship, submarine or shipyard he was assigned to. Most people do not associate shipyards with Navy Veterans-but the two are directly-related. Many crew members of a navy ship or submarine are required to stay on their ship or submarine at a shipyard to assist with repairs. If this sounds like your husband or dad, please call the lawyers at Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. You have nothing to lose-and the consultation is no obligation.” www.karstvonoiste.com/

The Michigan US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate’s free services are available to people with asbestos exposure lung cancer or mesothelioma in Detroit, Flint, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Ann Arbor, Troy, Farmington Hills or anywhere in Michigan.
https://Michigan.USNavyLungCancer.Com

High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Michigan include US Navy Veterans, auto plant workers, workers at one of Michigan’s dozens of power plants, manufacturing workers, public utility workers, plumbers, welders, electricians, millwrights, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers. Typically, these types of workers had significant exposure to asbestos during the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. www.karstvonoiste.com/

According to the American Cancer Society for nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/lung/statistics/index.htm.

The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “If your husband, dad, coworker or neighbor has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and you know they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, at a shipyard or while working at a factory, at power plant, public utility, or as a plumber, electrician welder, mechanic or any kind of skilled trades group in any state please have them call us anytime at 800-714-0303-the compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000.” https://USNavyLungCancer.Com

States with the highest incidence of lung cancer include Kentucky, West Virginia, Maine, Tennessee, Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Alabama, and Delaware. www.karstvonoiste.com/

Challenges Facing Host of Savannah River Site Projects in 2021; DOE Must Strive for More Openness, Better Outreach

SRS Watch logo

SRS Watch is a non-profit organization working for sound policies and projects by the U.S. Department of Energy at SRS.

Savannah River Site is located in South Carolina, across the river from Georgia. SRS operated 5 nuclear reactors and produced over 36 metric tons of weapon-grade plutonium, seprated in two reprocessing plants, producing a vast amount of high-level nuclear waste.

Abandoned plutonium fuel (MOX) building, courtesy High Flyer to SRS Watch. Being considered for the unjustified SRS Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP). The PBP would mean at least 7.5 metric tons of plutonium shipped to SRS, on top of 50 MT for plutonium disposition & VTR fuel.

In 2021, the U.S. Department of Energy's Savannah River Site faces many challenges with nuclear waste and nuclear weapons projects but progress is possible.

Along with better public interaction, the focus at DOE's Savannah River Site in 2021 must remain on clean-up of nuclear waste and resources must not be diverted to the unneeded Plutonium Bomb Plant.”

— Tom Clements, Director, Savannah River Site Watch, Columbia, South Carolina

COLUMBIA, SC, USA, January 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Proposed and Unjustified SRS Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP), to Fill the Plutonium Fuel (MOX) Money Hole, to be Opposed and Formally Reviewed in 2021, Termination Possible

The Savannah River Site faces import of over 50 metric tons of plutonium for three projects: 1) plutonium disposition (via "dilute & dispose"), 2) plutonium pit production for old and new nuclear warheads, and 3) fabrication of fuel for the ill-conceived Versatile Test Reactor (VTR). The VTR lacks congressional support and the Plutonium Bomb Plant is in trouble and facing growing opposition both in Congress and by public interest and arms control groups and may be terminated. We will be attentive that more plutonium does not get stranded at SRS (on top of the 11.5 metric tons now stored in the old K-Reactor).

Citizen engagement on projects at the Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site – located near Aiken, South Carolina – began in earnest in the mid-1970s. Despite misguided efforts by DOE and its contractors, a host of ill-conceived projects have been terminated, with great cost savings to the tax payer, avoided waste burden at the site and strengthened national security. (See SRS Watch list of impressive public victories from the 1970s through 2020.) Such successes can be repeated in 2021.

As we enter 2021, numerous programs at SRS face scrutiny as a new Congress takes over and a new administration implements new policies. The lack of openness by DOE and its National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and the hostile attitude toward the public, long a debilitating problem with DOE, again will face challenges by public interest groups. Of primary importance, DOE and SRS must operate in a more democratic and transparent manner. Savannah River Site Watch, along with colleague groups near DOE sites in the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability (ANA) – https://ananuclear.org/ – will renew efforts to hold DOE accountable and will work with new DOE officials in the development of sound policies.

Here’s a snapshot by Tom Clements, director of SRS Watch (https://srswatch.org/), of some issues facing the Savannah River Site and DOE in 2021 – for the 4-page discussion of these issues click on this link to the SRS Watch website:

1. Proposed, unjustified SRS Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP), to make plutonium pits for nuclear warheads, will get a thorough review in 2021 by DOE, NNSA and Congress. Expanded pit production at the troubled Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), presented with a straight face by DOE as the "plutonium center of excellence," will continue to be challenged.

2. Investigations into the mismanaged plutonium fuel (MOX) project at SRS are still urgently needed by DOE, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and Congress, which has failed to carry out its constitutional oversight power.

3. Review of need for new nuclear weapons, including the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (W87-1 warhead) and a submarine-launched ballistic missile (W93 warhead) and DOE and Department of Defense (DOD) support facilities will be conducted. A New Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) and Stockpile Stewardship and Management Plan will be prepared but a plan not influenced by the military-industrial complex is needed.

4. Processing of radioactive tritium gas at SRS, for nuclear weapons, will increase in 2021, bringing safety, health and security risks. Tritium rods (TPBARs) are made by WesDyne/Westinghouse Government Services at the dual-use Westinghouse uranium fuel plant near Columbia, SC – which agency regulates TPBAR fabrication and waste streams remains a mystery – and the rods are irradiated in TVA's Watts Bar Nuclear Bomb Reactors in Tennessee and taken to SRS for processing.

5. Processing at SRS of surplus weapons plutonium for disposal as waste is now undergoing a review under the National Environmental Policy Act. Capacity of the DOE's Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) underground facility in New Mexico is "oversubscribed" due to this project and transuranic (TRU) waste from pit production and the VTR.

6. Plutonium fuel fabrication at SRS for the proposed, unneeded Versatile Test Reactor (VTR) could bring 30 metric tons of plutonium to SRS. Planning for the "Virtual" Test Reactor is on shaky ground could be terminated. Comments are now being received on the draft EIS on the project.

7. Questions about the impacts of a recent cyberattack on DOE have gone unanswered by SRS and DOE headquarters.

8. SRS has failed to clarify the status of start-up of the Salt Waste Processing Facility (SWPF), to process high-level nuclear waste out of the SRS waste tanks. That must change in 2021.

9. Plans by the Savannah River National Lab (SRNL) and the Jülicher Entsorgungsgesellschaft für Nuklearanlagen (JEN) to import to SRS and dump German highly radioactive spent fuel – from the long-closed commercial gas-cooled reactors AVR (Forschungszentrum Jülich) and THTR (spent fuel now at Ahaus) – are in trouble but remain alive and must be terminated.

10. Clean-up of nuclear and chemical waste at SRS remains the king of employment. A SRS document frem the 4th quarter of Fiscal Year 2020, obtained by SRS Watch via a FOIA request, confirms over 11,000 people employed at SRS but that number will fall as waste tanks are closed by 2030, freeing funding for safer, environmentally sound projects elsewhere.

11. Efforts to dump 1300 vitrified high-level waste canisters – from the Defense Waste Processing Facility, DWPF – by 2029 as low-level waste or transuranic waste is misguide and will fail. High-level nuclear waste must be disposed of in a geologic facility, the pursuit of which must be renewed.

12. Spent fuel from the Finnish research reactor FiR is likely now on its way from Finland to the Idaho National Lab on the UK-flagged PNTL vessel Pacific Grebe, from the port of Vuosaari, Finland to the port of Savannah, Georgia.

13. Finally and significantly, DOE's "public affairs" office (we can't verify that such exists) and the SRS Office of External Affairs have failed in providing the public with information and responding to public requests. This must change when new officials are appointed at DOE, including at DOE HQ, the NNSA and DOE's Office of Environmental Management (EM).
