Regarding the Oct. 14 Reuters article “As nuclear waste piles up, South Korea faces storage crisis“: Duh?! When will all the nuclear-village idiots across the globe realize that radioactive waste from aging nuclear power plants will need safe storage for up to 100,000 years? Such waste cannot be collected on Monday morning by the city sanitation department and hauled off to some stinking landfill site at the edge of town. The entire nuclear power industry seems to suffer from the mass delusion that things will sort themselves out over time.
