After all, the horrors of radioactive contamination are vivid enough to make any community asked to potentially assume the entire burden of all the nuclear waste in the U.S. skeptical of the promises of scientists and policy makers that the waste can be stored safely. And the toxic waste will remain dangerous for millennia, likely to outlive humankind’s time on this Earth.
