From a local Washington state news outlet:
An investigation is underway following a pipe explosion last month at the Hanford site’s Plutonium Finishing Plant.
A spokesman for the CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Company says the employees were cutting a pipe on April 17th when they heard a loud bang and witnessed a small flame emit from the end of the pipe.
The pipe being cut was sealed within a containment area and no employees were hurt.
Further inspection of the pipe showed no signs of any spread of contamination.
The explosion happened on April 17 and that (the official) report was published May 2. On May 1, according to a local NBC report:
Hanford union workers tell NBC Right Now there was an explosion at the plutonium finishing plant cleanup site weeks ago, but the event wasn’t shared with the public…
“Having a pipe explode at probably the most contaminated facility in the United States. This is one of the most hazardous buildings in the U.S.” said the Union representative…
“They care more about their milestone being met, getting this facility torn down in a timely fashion, than any of the concerns that are brought up. People bring up concerns and they fall on deaf ears, especially at this facility,” the union representative said…
The union representative says management wants to keep experienced workers quiet. “PFP is not wanting to use experienced individuals anymore because we’re bringing up too many concerns in this plant. They want to bring in the guy that’s not going to ask any questions and they’ve started to do so,” the union representative said.
At least they’re not hiring homeless alcoholics to do the work, as with the Fukushima plant. Speaking of Fukushima, check out these headlines from Energy News:

Life and death. It’s pretty serious. Why aren’t the environmentalists speaking out? Where’s PETA? What about the UN? And where are real news reporters?
When you learn what’s really happening in the world and then watch the nonsense that passes for news, what conclusion can you draw except that mainstream news is merely another form of brainwashing entertainment to keep the masses calm and misdirected.
Nevertheless, a Bible quotation in honor of the Christian sabbath:
For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now (Romans 8:19-22).
No created thing was ever meant to die. Death was not in God’s plan, nor was suffering. Both entered the world when Adam sinned and thus handed his role as caretaker of earth over to Satan. However, as the biblical passage states, Satan won’t have dominion forever.
But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be abolished is death (1 Corinthians 15:20-26).
