The fact that only one site is under consideration in the first place underscores that this is not a science driven process, but rather a political mugging led by the nuclear industry.

This is the principle reason why a nuclear waste dump at Yucca Mountain will never be built but continued to be mired in controversy.

Moreover, the United States Department of Interior denied the lease to Private Fuel Storage to go ahead with an "interim" dump of commercial nuke waste because they have "no confidence" in the national deep geological repository process.

Hmmmm? A show of the OOI's "no confidence" in the NRC's "nuclear waste confidence decision?".

Onward into the fog....
