40. Educate me
How much heat is released by a safely encapsulated waste cask?
Enough to feel warmth?

If heat does escape safely, would it be correct to assume that it is
not accompanied by radiation?

If the above are answered positively, why is there not more of a drive
to use the casks as low-level heat sources via a simple heat-exchanger
