Submission on: Moving Forward Together: Designing the Process for Selecting a Site
September 25, 2008
No one anywhere wants nuclear waste dumped on this continent. We find that no matter how many assurances that the dump site has been made safe, that eventually due to natural causes such as earth quakes now much more freguent then ever before and in places that never before to our knowledge have had any. Eventually radio active material leaches into the aquifer poisoning untold number of people through contaminated drinking water not to mention the incidense of birth defects and incurable diseases. We in many places have this issue with uranium mining waste and once the damage has been done no one wants to take responcibility to clean it up. You also need to focus on safe renewable clean energy such as wind solar and water power. Nuclear spells a disaster waiting to happen.
