Nuclear waste presentations continue in northern Ontario


They are continuing their presentations, and I liked this summary from Wawa.  I'm surprised they screened out Red Rock early, I wonder for what reason.  I tend to think that no northern site will be suitable, due to the presence of huge shallow dipping fractures.  These underground rivers are always reactivated during glaciations.  It is possible to get under them, but then you are in very high stresses, and the rock won't be able to take the heat from the fuel bundles.

Nevertheless, no northern community should be afraid of such a site.  It will never leak Bananas up to them.
And these communities are awash in bananas, due to the natural radioactivity of the rocks.
