US Gives Up on Underground Nuclear Storage


The idea of storing, and ultimately burying, nuclear spent fuel underground is outdated, Hamilton said, adding, "It has been made clear to me that science has advanced dramatically since the Yucca site was chosen 20 years ago or so. We are going to pull together the current information and research to develop a plan."

Wow! This 'blue panel' is 90% political, with 2 scientists. I pity them! They are rejecting underground at the start, and going for 'something else'. Canada will be next on the 'something else' bandwagon!

These people have a two year party before they come up with this original idea. They'll probably hold 'hearings' at all the national party spots!
