>The great thing about nuclear waste is that we know where it is?.........
I knew a fellow who worked in the nuclear industry. He seemed to think
it was no problem to dispose of waste, as long as it's mixed with molten
glass. I'm not an expert, but there's a certain sense to it. Things
encased in glass generally don't go anywhere. Why not use the
containment vessels under sidewalks in Utah, to keep the snow off?
>And the really great example of herd manipulation is "“My trend has been
>toward more rational and less romantic as the decades go by,”
I reject overanalysis of people's motives, in favor of direct discussion
of the issue itself. Couldn't you denounce anyone's expression of
emotion as herd manipulation? I'm sensing that this is your reaction to
clever arguments you don't like.
