“The absence of any policies or strategies for dealing with these wastes, many of which will be hazardous for more than 100,000 years is a serious problem”

Dr. Gordon Edwards, Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility

Nuclear waste is the most toxic waste ever produced by mankind.  These toxic wastes are literally indestructible. We don’t know how to shut off radioactivity. We have to store these wastes safely and somehow keep it out of the environment for these incredibly long times. For the benefit of what? Twenty or 30 years of electricity?
