Japan To Become New Yucca Mountain?

Japanese Say "Yuk" to Yucca Mountain Proposal

Yucca Mountain
by Winsip Custer CPW News Service

With the growing evidence that Japan's Northeast coast will become the next Chernobyl, residents in Nevada's Northern counties are anxious that their proposal for creating an international Yucca Mountain-type repository for nuclear waste in the earthquake and Tsunami region of Japan be seriously considered.  "We don't want that stuff here," said goat rancher, Basil Crowfoot, of French Flats.  "I dream of my goat's milk lighting up like a Christmas tree," said Crowfoot.  "It might make it easier for me to hit the milk pail in the dark morning hours, but let's ship our spent fuel rods to Japan.  They are industrious and will figure out what to do with the stuff.  I don't know why when the Chernobyl accident happened they didn't have the same idea.  Heck, I hear that they opened the Chernobyl area for tourists...what are they, nuts?  Better make it into a highly guarded radioactive waste dump.  The world is going to need more radiation zones for storage, not less, and the world would be willing to pay big bucks for the security to keep the stuff out of the hands of the Muslim terrorists.  So why not just take each inevitable new accident site and turn it into storage like I do with the junk cars on the back side of my little ranch?" asked Crowfoot.  "In a couple thousand years no one will care and by then we may have been wiped out by another Black Plague or meteor," he concluded.

Meanwhile, on the street interviews in Tokyo indicated that there is little support for the idea in Japan.
