US Nuclear Waste Hunt Turns to Granite

Article

But the Sandia study lists factors like geological stability and low permeability pointing to granite deposits in the East and Midwest as possible sites for long-term nuclear waste disposal.

They have high expectations of granite.  I was looking at this 'forever' and it has a lot of problems.  Nevertheless, the only acceptable site is one in the granitic gneiss, between the megathrusts, and under unbroken shale.  This is what we have a Port Hope!

The joke is that any state chosen may pull all the Harry Reid tricks and stop the effort in its tracks.
