57. All this about...
All this folderol about not knowing what you are talking about.

Kris mistakenly turned a paragraph that dealt with a very, very
small percentage of the waste; into a generalization that he applied
to ALL the waste.

This is all due to the fact that he didn't know the science. He doesn't
know what the constituents of nuclear waste are, their relative amounts,
or how they are classified by DOE.

Because of this limited knowledge, most importantly not knowing what any
high school student should know about chemical reactions not making more
radioactivity, we see that Kris drew a monumentally erroneous conclusion.

Then to defend it his trite rebuttal was nothing more than " it's unambiguous
you are wrong". Well if you don't know your facts, I guess lots of things
that truly are ambiguous may seem unambiguous to those that don't know any
better.

This is why we need good scientists to explain these things. But more
importantly, we need people who are willing to listen to the scientists,
and don't already have their minds, or what passes for same; already made
up, not on the basis of scientific fact, but their own parochial politics.
