Letter: Users must fund nuclear disposal


August 21 - 22, 2004

Clarence Lanzrath's letter of Aug. 10, asking where the nuclear waste will go if not here in Nevada, is silly. The people who own and benefit from the production of the waste should deal with it themselves.

Instead they want to ship it through state after state to our back yard. People who had nothing to do with the production of the waste are now told we must accept it -- all because the nuclear lobby wants the federal government to take it off their hands.

If nuclear plants are such a good idea and so safe, let them keep their waste where they produce it. Let them pay for the storage, not the government.
