22. Too dumb to take seriously. Sorry.

 

"First, you are decomposing the waste down to an ash form that is MUCH less radioactive."

Nope. Doesn't happen. Ever. No way. Radioactive waste loses radiation by radioactive decay. No chemical processes have any effect whatsoever. Really basic physics fail.

The pamphlet looks like they took a perfectly reasonable waste incinerator (reduces the volume of waste at the cost of pollution and energy use), and figured that if they sealed it a little better they could burn nuclear waste the same way...

my real questions - just what IS all that nuclear waste in the first place? and why is there so much of it? and why is so much of it things that can be burnt?
