No matter how you slice it, the fact that nuclear waste lasts 10,000 – a million years (we don’t know for sure) should be enough to remove it from the “GREEN” energy category and any energy category at all.

If any thing we create creates a toxin thats life span lasts longer than the history of mankind, well — that just doesn’t seem like a great idea.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_waste

“It has been estimated, for instance, that the past 20 years the oil-producing endeavors of the United States[1] have accumulated eight million tons of radioactive wastes.”
