So a microbiologist states that it is the "safest spot to store nuclear waste", and gives no reasoning for this opinion.  He simply comes up with a proposal to pay Nevada citizens for the waste storage (to sway their votes and opinion).  Great.  Lets pay New Mexico, Texas, and Utah while we're at it.  If he had said it's the safest spot for storage because of population density, it would have had more substance.

Not sure that New Mexico, Texas, and Utah are a good comparison as they are interim storage facility proposals. Reprocessing or even burning it in a reactor (traveling wave reactor comes to mind) would make them more viable solution to meeting the governments obligations. I have pondered the viability of deep well boring at a subduction zone where the waste would slowly move into the earths molten core, a little slow but dropping vitrifies pellets into miles deep holes may be enough on it's own.
