Underground nuclear waste storage: Is underground nuclear waste storage safe?

  • Yes, technology is sufficiently developed.

    Yes, underground nuclear waste storage is safe, because engineers have spent a lot of time developing safe practices. It is much safer to store nuclear waste underground, where there is a real land buffer between the storage and people, than it is to store the waste above ground, where there is more likely to be exposure, as well as biological warfare risks.

  • Nuclear waste is never safe

    Nuclear waste is simply not safe, no matter the conditions, and it is a major reason why nuclear energy is a bad idea. It's time we recognize that and stop living in the fantasy of nuclear energy saving us without having to make some massive shift in our society which is simply inevitable.
