Radioactive Waste - If Wishes Were Fishes


Reasonable article.  So much unrealistic garbage is attached to nuclear waste disposal, I find it hard to believe we will get there.  Similar to new nuclear power in Ontario, we will only go to a forced conclusion when we are desperate, since it is all tied up in politics.

There are always 2 ways to go with this -- one is to pick reasonable geology and name a place.  This is always followed by a massive uproar, and heart-rendering stories about losers who moved there to get away from anything modern.  The 2nd is to allow everybody and their dog to request a dump, even though the geology is horrible.  This is what we are facing now.

Those towns around Bruce were quickly shut up by money and force.   Any screaming on their part will expose the existing Bruce waste disposal efforts.  I suspect we won't hear from them again.  :)
