No one has ever answered my question about what Nevadans plan to do with all of the radioactive contamination that already exists right next door to Yucca Mountain at the old Nevada Test Site. Around 1000 nuclear weapons were tested there.

The waste from power plants would be locked up inside very secure containers and put inside Yucca Mountain. The contamination from the weapons tests is not inside any container. And it is there right now.

--------------------------------

As long as nuclear power is hated more than CO2, the atmospheric CO2 concentration is just going to keep rising. I have heard there might be some adverse long term consequences on the environment of this.
