Nuclear waste store search gains Cumbrian public's backing
Published at 11:11, Tuesday, 22 May 2012
A new survey shows Cumbrians want a search to be carried out to find a suitable site for burying highly radioactive nuclear waste in the west of the county.
Have your say
The only thing that should matter regarding the underground waste store is the geology. If the geology in west cumbria is found to meet the specifications then why not have it? it will be a lot safer than where it is now above ground at Sellafield. If the geology is found to be unacceptable then at least we will know and be able to start looking elswhere. It is not really an option to leave it above ground for the next few tens of thousands of years so the store must be built somewhere.
I agree with me, might aswell take the cash for a hole in the ground, put enough concrete over it and itll be reet, we will probly have nuked ourselves out of existance by the time this stuff would ever be a problem anyway!
When will everybody realise that this waste is currently sitting in above-ground stores at Sellafield? Let's take the 'community benefits' package, which will amount to billions of pounds over the next few years - look at how much NMP currently dole out - rather than just be stuck with the waste without the money!!
