Oh Thank God! We Canadians don't have the stupidity monopoly for nuclear waste.
I'm sure the usgus just loves this idea! They don't know a thing about the earthquake-causing Precambrian basement, so let's shove down some very hot waste.
In their Great Ignorance, they visualize the basement as a big slab of grave-stone granite. This is the exact same stupidity as the Bruce Waste site. I guess both those guys didn't vaccinate. :)
Let's put this waste right into a megathrust. Can't wait to see what it'll do....
Moderating thoughts: I really can't tear into the usgus for their blind monkey act. Same as Canada. Some time ago, I developed the only rational way to deal with this waste, but it is politically unacceptable. In such cases, the only thing to do is to spend billions on a solution that won't work. Always happened, always will.
My work: We Canadians had a silly idea of using boreholes from a deep underground cavern. My stress studies put paid to that quickly. It's a sad truth that you either have a huge fault nearby, or the stresses are so high you can't even drill a borehole. But let the usgus find that out for themselves! :)
