2010 Issues and Topics

Volume 11; Number 1 -- Change is Coming — But Will It Be Enough?

In this issue of Voices from the Earth, we focus on current aspects of ongoing issues: questions surrounding President Obama's policy on nuclear weapons, the future of the nation's nuclear waste, and continuing problems regarding the nation's — and world's — only operating nuclear waste repository: the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP). Another major perpetual issue is a community's quest for clean water.

Volume 11; Number 2 -- Protecting Communities

Southwest Research and Information Center's mission hasn't changed much over the last 39 years: we still focus on protecting communities. From the early years of technical assistance to more recent work to assess local pollution problems and help communities protect their natural resources, direct involvement has been an integral part of our work. While we still work to educate and provide assistance to communities, some of our focus has changed: we now work more closely with communities and agencies to educate people about health impacts and to address the problems.

The nuclear waste dump is permitted to operate until 2024, but the federal government want to expand the amount and types of waste allowed with NO end date.
We need your help to protect New Mexico!
