Current plans to store nuclear waste are poop
I did not make this up. Current plans call for glass, bentonite and copper to make up for a lack of good geology. They all bake together with radioactivity and water.
It's a fun thing that you cannot have a good plan with strict physics. Interest groups have demands that conflict with each other. As with global warming, there's no physics here.
The only plan that works is my plan, but that is a big pipe dream. So, they will attempt to jiggle a plan through all the defenders. Neat. I won't lose any sleep over it.
**my plan -- you throw all this stuff into big holes 5000 ft below Wesleyville. Dry as a bone, and the heat makes it dryer. All leakage is dry diffusion through solid rock. In a million years, that travels 2 inches. Happy-happy. :)
