Why do you call people you disagree with "enviro-whackos"?
Anyways, this has nothing to do with Yucca Mountain.
I have been begging for these radioactive waste materials to be put into safe containment facilities and the nuclear plants to be shut down
Obviously we are seeking solutions like Yucca Mountain so we can prevent further contamination of Earth's ecosystems. When space travel has been
refined to a cheap affordable level, we can take that waste away from Earth if necessary.
Blame the government for screwing up, not me.
They buried that crap in the ground in extremely vulnerable conditions. I would have never agreed to something that short-sighted.
