The burial of radioactive nuclear waste is to be fast tracked by the government despite warnings about the risks.

Ministers have revealed an "enduring ambition" for Britain's first burial of waste from nuclear power stations to happen as early as 2029, instead of 2040 as originally planned

I like this bit:
Quote:
Charles Hendry, Tory energy minister, hailed the idea as potentially a "multi-billion pound development". It would benefit the communities where nuclear waste is currently temporarily stored and the burial areas as investment would be made earlier.


Hailing the enormous cost as a benefit? There was nothing so topsy-turvy in either Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking Glass.

Ah yes, remember what happened the last time major waste disposal facilities were on the agenda?

I'm sure "growth" is precisely what you'd get if you lived near one of them!
