Congress was warned Tuesday that the failure to build the planned Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository in Nevada could delay licensing of the country's first new nuclear power plants in a generation.
I was wondering when this would hit the fan. Obama and chums can go 'la, la la', and keep Yuk-yuk Mountain barely alive enough to legally exist. Then they can keep all the old laws about federal responsibility for nuclear waste and all that. But, will anybody believe them?
The truth is: that new nuclear plant by the river, upstream from a major city, will keep it's nuclear waste in rusty barrels forever and ever. Are they getting wise to that?
