8. I don't do "META"

RobertEarl,

Forget it - I don't do META.

The anti-nukes are self-righteous. They think they are the only ones that are right, when they don't understand even 1% of the technology. They believe everyone else, especially those that understand the technology, are required to conform to their ill-conceived, ill-consider notions. That's crazy.

Nuclear waste is a solved problem and doesn't have to last for a long time.

Again, I have to refer you to the interview with nuclear physicist Dr. Charles Till, Associate Director of Argonne National Lab and his interview with PBS Frontline. Evidently you didn't understand it the first time I referred to it:

Q: And you repeat the process.

A:Eventually, what happens is that you wind up with only fission products, that the waste is only fission products that have, most have lives of hours, days, months, some a few tens of years. There are a few very long-lived ones that are not very radioactive.

The USA wouldn't have a problem to hand down to future generations, except for the fact, that the anti-nukes created the problem by getting Congress to outlaw the solution in 1978.
