#3 It is a nice batholith and a good place for storage, but you can thank Harry Reid and his enviro wack constituents.

Politicians are not problem solvers, they are problem sustainers.

Welcome to the conversation, willford! That was my take on the article, too. Still, it's good to remind the community that the longer they avoid taxing themselves to pay for replacement tanks, the greater the health risk to themselves and the greater the accrued cost of cleaning up the mess.

#10 "None of them should be in service," said Tom Carpenter of Hanford Challenge, a Hanford watchdog group. "And yet, they're holding two-thirds of the nation's high-level nuclear waste."

There's something deeply incompetent happening there. It sounds as if they don't have any answers that don't cost at least a million dollars.

#11 Well the answer a few years back was to solidify the stuff into giant popcicles and store in Yucca Mountain, but as bigjim-CA indicated, the Yucca Mountain plan hit the NIMBY firewall. Not sure wat 'Plan B' is or was.

#12 Should be careful - the stuff might explode and send the moon Washington State shooting our across the universe.

I know some of you wouldn't miss is but it'll be hard on us few Washington State conservatives....

#13 Alyeska Pablo, the problem here is managers. Managers manage the problem, and they manage to see that it never does manage to go away. 'Cause who knows if they'd manage to find another job.

Have you noticed what happened to the gross cancer rate since the American Cancer Society got ahold of it?
Nothing.
