Rather than saying it was never the best choice for long-term storage of HLW, Trump decides to suck up to the Nevada anti-nukes. Classic

by whichever means derived, it's a good end,...

This is typical of Trump and band of idiots. He is driving for votes no matter what it takes to get them. When it is all said and done he will change routes again and do something else very stupid. Yucca has been an issue for many many years but there are alternatives for dry storage that must be addressed so that we centralize the storage of all this spent fuel or make a decision on whether we should consider fast-breeders again, discounting the stupidity of Jimmie Carter on this subject, or next-generation reactors using TRUs. Somehow Trump will mess this up and stick it to Nevada in the end.

That probably WAS the civil version of what they wanted to say. ;)

Thank you Michael, you are correct that was as civil as I could remain. But the issues not withstanding need to be addressed and if Yucca is not the answer than the gov't should take the necessary actions to remedy the problem. This problem is not going to go away and if we are going to help save the environment then nuclear power is the ultimate answer. Dry storage either above ground or below ground is the only answer for high level waste storage, this being said centralized above ground, sub-terrain dry storage must be considered.

Wow this is fun!!! I never thought I would get to remind the webmaster of his own rules. Of course I am violating those very rules with this post.

is and has been,...

but friends of the court, NIMBYs, et al, always line up to shut progress down,...

The current administration running Uncle Sam wants nothing to do with making nuclear viable over the long term.

e.g.

1 - cancelling Yucca Mountain

2 - cancelling by regulation obfuscation fiat Skull Valley ( http://archive.sltrib.com/story.php?ref=/sltrib/politics/55513674-90/consortium-friday-license-nrc.html.csp )

cannot wait to see which "Friends of the Court" come out of the weeds for this next, viable, plan:

http://www.holtecinternational.com/2015/04/holtec-partners-with-elea-llc-in-new-mexico-to-build-consolidated-interim-storage-facility/

a box of doughnuts?!?!?

you cannot win a box of doughnuts bet on any viable plan in this country under the current geoacademiapolitical pedagogy,... [coffee]

We should be talking about the 18% budget cut that the White House wants from the FY21 DOE Environmental Management budget.  That's a big hit.

Just rename it, and you'll be fine.  The incumbents aren't fond of anything named "Environmental".

To defend Mounder DOE Environmental Management is primarily Cold War environmental legacy facilities and waste. That could mean loss of work for some contract Nukeworkers. It is just a proposal, the final budget is unknown, Congress still has to carve out money for it's constituency in the final budget.
