I am not infovour of developing new nuclear waste storege facilities. Nuclear energy is expensive and unnecessary. The risks associated with the waste produced only add to my concerns about this technology.
In my view conservation and renewables can more than meet our energy requirements, if only we can agree, for a change, to be smart about energy use. At least 50% and probably as much as 90% of the energy we use is wasted. Renewable sources can meet our interim demands while we reconfigure our societies to make optimal use of our energy supply.
Exponential growth of demand and supply is not a wise path to follow. Please don't dump your waste in my back yard. If it's so safe you should keep it for yourselves.
