    • Nuclear waste is not a problem in modern reactors. Also elements some concept reactors cant "melt down". https://en.m.wikiped…eryx

    • <this shit's more complicated than nuclear waste, and in <that kind of situation (vs deep mines), probably more of an environmental problemNairn
    • Actual hardcore nuclear waste isn't a major problem, other than socially - ALL of the world's 'bad' waste from all-time could easily fit on a football field.Nairn
    • Problem with <this shit is that it's like spun carbon embedded in resin, encased in plastic and with (presumably) metal components. Recycling Clusterfuck.Nairn
