Citizen Comment regarding radioactive waste placement at Yucca Mtn:
I was there in Chicago when nuclear industry procedure on Monday, December
10, demonstrated thoroughly characteristically as to WHY Yucca Mountain, or
any other centralized nuclear radwaste site requiring the transport of
unlimited numbers of shipments through vulnerable citizen routes, the only Want to add a comment?
available, for an unlimited time period, WHY such action is so totally
unacceptable to all Americans (indeed, to ALL people).

consequences, short and long-term? On the endangered species, humankind?
Until these kinds of basic questions are genuinely and comprehensively
answered in classic scientific method, we, as United States and as world
citizens, may not proceed on the politically outlined plan.
