Ed Morrissey has been writing some interesting comments on problems at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission where, quelle surprise, politics have raised barriers to activated a national nuclear waste repository and reprocessing facility in Nevada. I've never thought that it would be a significant danger, but people are frightened irrationally but anything involving the word "nuclear," despite nuclear generation and nuclear medicine. I'm not particularly well informed about nuclear physics, but I do know that there's no reason for the fear. If France can do it, why can't we?
Strutting and fretting in an insane world.
