Week 5: TSIS

Reading Chosen: Nuclear Waste by Richard A. Muller (p.g. 252-259)

Agrees: 

Nuclear waste is one of the biggest technical issues that any future president is likely to face (252)  & the stats that come with NW danger

Other alternatives for storing nuclear waste (the sun/ subduction zones) are not a good idea (254)

We should not raise a panic over radioactivity in Los Angeles water supply (258)

Disagrees: 

Those who don’t like it’s storage in Yucca Mountain as consequences of NOT doing so are much higher (254)

You don’t need a 0.1 % level os security in full 10 000 years, once we reach 300 years, the risk is much lower that people say it is (256)

Both: 

Hangs on the fence about whether this is a scientist issue or a politican issue (255)
