  •  DawnN-- the safe storage of nuclear (6+ / 0-)

    waste has never been resolved. Uranium 235 has a half-life of 704 million years and the half-life of uranium 238 (depleted uranium, which becomes fissionable uranium (Uranium 239), which is used in breeder reactors in the form of plutonium has a half-life of 4.6 billion years.

    Considered as one of the safest places to store the waste? The salt domes of south Louisiana--sad irony. You are right to be very concerned about Chu's cavalier position on the storage issue.

    "...always that space b/tween what you feel and, what you do, in that gap all human sadness lies. Blue Dog
