The nuclear options
Sen. Harry Reid, a Democrat and the Senate majority leader, was recently asked again about a nuclear waste storage proposal for his home state of Nevada.
"Scientists are now saying leave the nuclear waste where it is, in deep ground storage," Reid said in an interview on Feb. 19, 2010. "And when I say deep ground, (I mean) 10 feet underground. The new nuclear power plants are going to be built, and it's terrific that the president stepped forward on this. I'm not against nuclear power. I'm against bringing nuclear waste to Nevada. Scientists say leave it where it is. That's what we have to do."
