This book explores one of the most critical issues facing the nation today, that of nuclear waste disposal. With specific focus on the DOE's selection of Yucca Mountain, Nevada, as a final repository candidate, this book examines the scientific, political, and social complexities surrounding the buildup of high-level nuclear wastes, the political tensions surrounding the disposal method and site selection, and presents a cogent analysis of the risks, costs, and benefits of the Yucca Mountain project.
