    ...answering this question, which is actually a trivial question, since the storage of valuable used nuclear fuel has not caused any deaths in this country.

    You may leaf through the 399 diaries I wrote on this site where I addressed this question many times in detail, although my diaries have certainly proved to be as useless as all the diaries on this website about climate change, against which the battle has failed.

    The silly designation of used nuclear fuel as "waste" is an arbitrary and meaningless - if popular - designation.

    If you are really concerned about energy "wastes" you might want to consider the fact that 3.3 million people die from air pollution each year - half under the age of 5 - not even counting climate change, with epidemiological evidence rapidly accumulating that climate change does, in fact, cause large numbers of human deaths.

    If you would like to make a claim that the storage of used nuclear fuel kills anything like 33 million people per decade, I'd be very interested in hearing you document your claim.

    Have a nice weekend.
