    That whole Yucca disposal site sounds like a great idea. It just keeps getting shut down or shot down.

    "If used fuel assemblies were stacked end-to-end and side-by-side, this would cover a football field about eight yards deep." NEI

    Seriously... Nukes are a clean energy source. More people died in the back of Ted Kennedy's car than in all the nuclear accidents in the United States.

    True--there is a Ted Kenndys Reef off of Hyannis--made up of cars, each with a dead teenaged girl in it!!

    the amount of train cars to bring all the nulcear waste is very high

    when the numbers are run the chance of an accident during transport of thousands of train cars full of waste is close to 100%

    The fact that now most nuclear waste is stored in cooling ponds next to nuclear plants that are all located on large bodies of water makes me nervous too.

    Those are, or supposed to be, "low level" spent fuel. "High level" is buried in Yucca or similar location.
    Either way, it is an unsolved problem.
    But I am all for "nuclear energy". The nuclear energy of the Sun--nothing beats it, no need for windmills killing wildlife, no need for deep storage caverns. But we need a new battery to store it for prompt use. Maybe Elon Musk will come up with a solution for that??

    Already had leaks recently and numerous shutdowns over the last decade.

    But heck, it's out in the middle of nowhere, right?
