Above-Ground Dry Cask Storage seems to work just fine ...

There is no safe way of using the waste in reactors.  The idea that it could provide a fuel source for a Thorium reactor is nonsense. 


www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2011/jun/...


The spent fuel rods from a reactor are the most radioactive, and there is no permanent storage site for spent fuel rods.


Until or unless there is some safe method of dealing with with radioactive by-products of nuclear energy, the world should stop producing it.

Your articles here do not claim that “there is no way to safely dispose of nuclear waste.” Nor do they provide any empirical evidence from which to draw such a conclusion.

Again, your newspaper article, blatantly biased though it is, does not provide any evidence about safety.

Once again, your links do not support the claim you have asserted.


If someone were make a bunch of derogatory claims about, say, “liberals” or gorillas or microwave ovens and linked to various online articles that, while being entirely unscholarly and biased against "liberals" or gorillas or microwave ovens, do not provide any evidence to support the derogatory claims this person has made, you would readily understand what an irrational fanaticism this person is espousing. You don’t see it when you do it here, because you are already committed to the anti-nuclear religion. It’s nothing but bad religion: you have no intention of allowing any information to seep in that would require you to question the dogma.  That's bad religion by definition.


What is it exactly that you are afraid is going to happen with nuclear waste? Describe the scenario that you are afraid is going to occur.


After you do that, then tell us why it hasn’t happened in 50 years of nuclear power, despite not even having laws or treaties governing nuclear waste for most of these year.


I bet you (and MM) are afraid to answer those two questions.


The fact is, just as already pointed out, it has already been proven that nuclear waste can be and is managed safely. The proof is that there has not been a single death or injury from nuclear waste in 50 years of nuclear power. I realize that this is information that you just can’t take in because it contradicts your religion. Nevertheless, it is a fact.

Here in Minnesota, we do above-Ground Dry-Cask Storage ... So far, so good ...


How long -- and WHERE -- can we "store" the fly-Ash from Coal-Power Stations ... ???


How "SAFE" is Coal Mining" ... ??? How ABOUT all the Carbon Dioxide being released into the Atmosphere from Fossil-Fuel Power Generation Plants ... ???
