Yucca Mountain began over 2 decades ago. President Bush after a careful analysis of the data signed House Joint Resolution 87 in 2002
 



For over two decades, the Yucca Mountain Project has conducted an extensive scientific effort to determine whether Yucca Mountain, Nevada is a suitable site for a deep underground facility called a repository. The purpose of a repository is to safely isolate highly radioactive nuclear waste for at least 10,000 years. On July 9, 2002, the U.S. Senate cast the final legislative vote approving the development of a repository at Yucca Mountain The Yucca Mountain Project is currently focused on preparing an application to obtain a license from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission to construct a repository.


Yucca mountain represents the best possible site to safely store nuclear waste.



Scientists have long considered Yucca Mountain a promising site for a repository due to the area’s dry climate, remoteness, stable geology, deep water table, and closed water basin.

In a blatant appeal to voters in Nevada, Kerry has told the Las Vegas Review “ That Yucca would be a “Non Starter” if elected. Yet he has failed to outline a plan as to what he feels the ultimate solution is. Despite sound environmental evidence, despite the risks of highly radioactive waste being stored in 39 states, despite the risks of a terrorist attacks, Kerry is going to put a stop to the best possible solution to the problem

Well short of launching the waste into outer space Yucca Mountain is probably one of the best places in the US to store radioactive waste. We have to put it somewhere and Yucca is probably the best place. So naturally I aprove.

John Kerry has made a point of saying that Yucca Mountain is a "non starter" as far is he concerned. His play aparently involves leaving the waste in place. Is that as safe as the Yucca mountain plan?
