Disposal of radioactive wastes in Yucca Mountain probably has its problems, but we have to do something. If Rodney Ewing is correct in his criticisms, perhaps we should recycle uranium reactor wastes into plutonium fuel and burn it. The recycling will not only reduce the volume of waste by an order of magnitude but the waste material itself will be much less long-lived.
