m1ke: I'm no nuclear scientist and I'm also not being snarky....but why not just dump it in a really deep part of the ocean?
thespindrifter: m1ke: I'm no nuclear scientist and I'm also not being snarky....but why not just dump it in a really deep part of the ocean?Water circulates. Plastic degrades, metal corrodes, et cetera. Honestly, a dry landfill in a desert cave is by far safer than the ocean. If you went the Marianas Trench route, you would have to find a way to be sure that the contents of the sunken containers were actually recycled back into the earth's crust, not just crushed open so the contents could escape. Yucca Flats was by far one of America's better ideas for containment, and yet delay after delay leaves our shiatload of waste rotting away at places like Savannah and Clearwater. Scary scary! Japan is about one of the least safe places to store anything radioactive.

Haliburton Cummings: like you, nuclear radiation is unconcerned with "depth".
