Nuclear body says waste not a problem - do you believe them?

British Nuclear Group has said nuclear waste isn't a problem, and Reuters has reported this as if it is true and independent.

But the committtee set up to look into the issue of waste disposal has yet to report, and they are pessimistic in an interim report (see earlier blog).

"From a technical point of view we can deal with any waste that comes from nuclear plants," Graham Fairhall, chief technology officer at Nexiasolutions, the research arm of the British Nuclear Group, told Reuters. "The only question left is disposal or storage of the waste."

Well that's the main question isn't it?

The nuclear industry faces a huge trust gap. I don't believe them, and neither should you. Let's wait for the independent report.
