U.S. government to pay New Mexico $73 million over radiation leak

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 05/01/2015 - 10:58
The U.S. Energy Department will pay New Mexico $73 million in road and other infrastructure projects for violations by an underground nuclear waste dump and nuclear research lab that led to a radiation leak last year, officials said on Thursday. The deal struck between the department and New Mexico forgoes fines and instead applies funds to upgrades to federal nuclear facilities and surrounding communities in the state, according to settlement documents. Projects include construction of a $5 million emergency operations center in Carlsbad, near where the nuclear waste dump leaked radiation in February 2014. The leak at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, or WIPP, exposed 22 workers to radiation in amounts not expected to threaten their health, and indefinitely suspended key operations at the site, the Energy Department's only permanent underground disposal facility for certain types of radiological waste from U.S. nuclear labs.

Documentary on T-rex discovery leads to pardon request

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 05/01/2015 - 10:24

In this June 26, 2013 photo provided by Black Hills Institute of Geological Research, Peter Larson excavates a Triceratops femur in a quarry near Newcastle, Wyoming. Larson has discovered thousands of fossils around the world and led the team that unearthed the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex ever found. But there’s one black mark on his record _ a federal conviction that landed him in prison 20 years ago. His name could soon be cleared because a documentary released last year at the Sundance Film Festival has brought his legal blemish back into the public eye and spurred South Dakotans _ and Larson himself _ to push for President Barack Obama to clear his name with a pardon. (Timothy Larson/Black Hills Institute via AP)PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Pete Larson has discovered thousands of fossils around the world, co-authored three books and led the team that unearthed the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex ever found. But there's one black mark on his record: a federal conviction that landed him in prison almost 20 years ago.
