More Problems With Yucca Nuke Dump
"The Yucca Mountain nuclear waste depository assumes geological stability over 10,000 years. Too bad the government didn't pay more attention to what geologists had to say... There are other unanswered questions that could affect the performance of Yucca Mountain for holding nuclear waste. For one, its not clear that DOE has correctly predicted the increase in precipitation over the next ten centuries, leading to uncertainty about the probability that water will infiltrate the repository. In particular, DOE has not adequately accounted for the likely increases in temperature and rainfall that will occur due to anthropogenic climate change."
