Nuclear waste in Japan


A very long-winded article that raises an interesting point on the problem of nuclear waste in Japan.  They are trying to do the France thing (plutonium extraction), but seem to be incompetent at it.  There is too much waste for this to do much, even if they got it working.  And believe me, that would present a seismic risk of inconceivable magnitude.  

Geological disposal in that country would be a worse problem than the Bruce solution of putting it on (in?) the Grenville Front!  The whole country is one big fault!  Still, that would be better than jamming fuel pools at nuclear plants, which was one big problem during that last earthquake.
