Although a dozen years have elapsed since any new nuclear power reactor has come online in the U.S.,there are now stirrings of a nuclear renaissance. The incentives are certainly in place: the costs of natural gas and oil have skyrocketed; the public increasingly objects to the greenhouse gas emissionsfrom burning fossil fuels; and the federal government has offered up to $8 billion in subsidies andinsurance against delays in licensing (with new laws to streamline the process) and $18.5 billion in loanguarantees. What more could the moribund nuclear power industry possibly want? Just one thing: aplace to ship its used reactor fuel. Indeed, the lack of a disposal site remains a dark cloud hanging overthe entire enterprise. The projected opening of a federal waste storage repository in Yucca Mountain inNevada (now anticipated for 2017 at the earliest) has already slipped by two decades, and the coolingpools holding spent fuel at the nation’s nuclear power plants are running out of space.Plan: The United States Federal Government should pursue a dual track approach to nuclear wastestorage allowing interim dry cask storage and developing a permanent repository.
SolvencyThe plan would save the nuclear power industry.

“NUCLEAR ENERGY AT ACROSSROADS”(DS) – Lexis, dru
The waste storage problem in the United States is manageable. The United Statesshould pursue a dual-track approach: commit to developing a consensus and then openingup a permanent repository and in parallel store as much spent fuel as possible in dry casksthat are hardened against attack at existing reactor sites. The combination of interimstorage and commitment to a permanent repository would provide the assurances neededby the public and the investment community for continued use of nuclear power
