WIPP could and should be the High Level Waste Repository within the US, IMO.
It is silly to build a second salt repository instead of just adding panels to WIPP.
The people in the area are predominantly supportive of the WIPP.
The entire waste problem is silly. Reprocess and store whatever is left over in WIPP.
