Well in the grand scheme of things it would have been nice to actually USE that huge facility we spent billions upon billions building at Yucca
Mountain, Nv. It would seem Harry Reid raped that project for every crooked dollar he could work out from it then, when it was all but COMPLETE and
ready to open, he spearheads the move to shut it down and play like it never existed. Absolutely unbelievable.
On a local level, fires like this don't spend extended periods over any one piece of ground. The non-fictions about firemen who have survived being
over-run by a fire ...as well as post morteum reports on the two major fires where they didn't survive it...tells a lot about how little it really
takes to secure a small, managable area (Like spent fuel storage, for instance) for the short term heat issues of a direct over-run... If they are
really that worried, it tells me that such planning and moving at the local site has probably never happened.
Nuclear Power may have it's uses....I just can't trust it to be used by the same level of total stupidity we see from the Post Office to the
Pentagon and everything in between. The very specific material storage at Los Alamos (of all places) should have 100% secure and impervious to
wildfire a very long time ago. No excuses for this.
