In regards to no ability to store nuclear waste... I'm not gonna say that's untrue because I am not a nuclear scientist of any sort, but I do remember a few years ago it "went public" briefly (then I never heard anything else about it) that nuclear waste can be safely sequestered in ceramic plates. Which are then buried. Supposedly once the nuclear waste is added to the slurry used to create ceramic it can be held and handled by hand.
Again, not saying this is definitive or anything, but for just a bit this was touted as the solution to nuclear waste.
Now, possibly, but not at the time or it would not be an issue even now (see the utter fiasco that is San Onofre). They created the systems with zero plan to deal with it. It was NOT a concern to those pushing the issue.
I'll say this, Earth is a being (collective) expression with zero differentiation between you and I, burying toxic leftover weapons waste is blood boiling bad.
Imagine your neighbor burying their left over party trash in your liver - exactly the same.

Breaking now...Sue Gordon is leaving her position after a meeting with Trump in the Oval Office.
Since she's out, Trump should be naming the new DNI shortly. There's only a week left till new one takes over.
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has appointed former United States President William J. Clinton to the position of United Nations Special Envoy for Haiti. The appointment builds on Mr. Clinton’s extensive engagement with Haiti, both while serving in the White House and most recently through his Call to Action on Haiti at the Clinton Global Initiative in September 2008. Mr. Clinton also accompanied the Secretary-General to Haiti in March, during the Secretary-General’s visit to raise global awareness of the Caribbean nation’s needs.
As Special Envoy, Mr. Clinton will help jump-start social and economic recovery efforts in Haiti. He will focus attention on the importance of new partnerships and efforts among the private sector, civil society and donors, as well as strengthen local capacity and create a more stable and prosperous future for Haiti. Building on President Clinton’s lifetime in public service, the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) reflects his belief that governments need collaboration from the private sector, non-governmental organizations, and other global leaders to effectively confront the world’s most pressing problems

I dont know if you are aware or not, but back in Feb someone on 8ch dropped a huge deep dive dig on the author of the book you are now reading. Perhaps after you finish your book you might like to give this a read just to see the other side of the coin thats been dug up on her. Im not judging or anything, just letting you know someone has come up with a lot of interesting facts that they prove over and over in the dig. Coincidentally, the day this dropped is the day she closed both her Twitter and FB accounts. I found that to be a little curious in itself.
You really do have to read it all to be fair and then decide for yourself.

As Q has mentioned on occasion, Be Careful Who You Follow...
Rachel Lee Brand (born May 1, 1973) is an American lawyer, academic, and former government official. She served as the United States Associate Attorney General from May 22, 2017, until February 20, 2018, when she resigned to take a job as head of global corporate governance at Walmart.
She also served as Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Policy in the George W. Bush administration and was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve on the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board. Prior to becoming Associate Attorney General, Brand was an associate professor at Antonin Scalia Law School.
In 2008, John McCain, then a candidate for the Republican Party's presidential nomination, named Brand to his Justice Advisory Committee, which would have recommended judicial nominees to McCain were he elected.
On February 9, 2018, the New York Times reported that Brand, along with her assistant Currie Gunn, had resigned from the Justice Department. The New York Times indicated that Brand oversaw "a wide swath of the Justice Department" and helped lead the department's effort to extend Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act that "authorizes the National Security Agency’s warrantless surveillance program."
On February 12, 2018, NBC News reported that Brand had quit the Justice Department over fear she might be asked to oversee the Russia probe and had taken a position with Walmart as EVP of Global Governance and Corporate Secretary. As executive vice president of global governance, chief legal officer, and corporate secretary, Brand is in charge of the legal department, global ethics, compliance, and investigations.
In a 2008 publication of the Heritage Foundation, Brand argued against, and proposed various solutions to, what she termed the "over-federalization" of criminal law in the United States.
Rachel L. Brand, by her own admission, has never prosecuted so much as a traffic case. But in January 2006, when Justice Department officials began to discuss removing some United States attorneys, Ms. Brand was proposed as the top federal prosecutor in the Western District of Michigan.
As the National Law Journal explains, “She fought Obama’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s rule requiring companies to disclose their use of minerals from war-torn regions.”
