If the Yucca mountain "repository" is supposed to be a radioactive 
waste disposal site for used fuel rods, it is not a good idea.

We will need to recycle nuclear fuel in those used fuel rods (as the 
French do now)  for the nuclear power plants of the future that will 
power our nation.

Also, the radioactive waste volume and half-life will both be reduced 
when we recycle nuclear fuel.
