SUFFERING FROM YUCCA-SCHIZOPHRENIA
“It seems 58 percent of Nevadans polled oppose the Yucca Mountain project, where the government wants to bury the highly radioactive waste from nuclear plants. But in a different question, 58 percent of Nevadans said they had no problem whatsoever digging up more uranium to refine and use in nuclear power. Thus creating more nuclear waste. Thus creating a greater need for the disposal of said nuclear waste. Thus creating more pressure to build and operate Yucca Mountain. Which 58 percent of Nevadans say they’re against.
Does that make sense to anybody? We didn’t think so.”
