America has a waste problem. I’m not talking about spending either.
In April, the Obama administration halted the development of the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste plant, leaving the United States without a long term, permanent home for nuclear waste.
One would think that after Japan’s Fukushima Daichii nuclear power plant disaster earlier this year, there would be a new sense of urgency for safe storage of radioactive waste. However, the Department of Energy is no closer to finding a solution to nuclear waste today than it was nearly three decades ago when the Nuclear Waste Policy Act was passed in 1982.
