Re: [californiadisasters] Diablo Canyon Nuclear Waste Becoming 'Terrible Burden'

I've replied to this in the Discussion group, as it's only marginally
on-topic at this point.

What will really torque you off is that there is actually a fuel recycling
plant in New Jersey. But eco-nuts have blocked the plant from operating and
it has never been used to recycle nuclear fuel. In other words the plant has
been built and could operate, but it's blocked from doing so. When some of
these people are questioned about radiation, contamination and radioactive
half-life, none of them know anything. About that point most of them reveal
that they are really anti-war protesters and they want to ban nuke plants
because they think they're being used to make nuclear bombs. Most of them
parrot what other uninformed people have told them concerning nuclear power
generation, instead of finding out the true facts for themselves.

Canyon Power Plant, like many other nuclear plants in the nation, is
becoming its own mini Yucca Mountain -- a growing repository of highly
radioactive spent nuclear fuel.
>For years, the identified
solution was to bury the waste in a centralized underground storage
facility at Yucca Mountain in the Nevada desert. However, the Obama
administration has canceled those plans.
>This means that spent
fuel stockpiles at places such as Diablo Canyon won't be going anywhere
for the foreseeable future. This angers many local elected officials who
feel betrayed by the federal government.
>"This is a terrible
burden that we weren't supposed to and shouldn't have to bear," said
County Supervisor Adam Hill, whose district includes Diablo Canyon.
>State Sen. Sam Blakeslee, R-San Luis Obispo, agrees. He describes
seismically active San Luis Obispo County as "wholly unsuitable" as a
nuclear waste storage site. <SNIP>
