There's a book out there for the super green recycling cult called
"cradle to cradle":
I was sent a copy from the head of the state recycling program in my state.
It rejects the rad industry as fundamentally flawed because the waste
steam is inherently non-recyclable ---- HOWEVER --- if you read the book
and what they define as the ideal recyclable - spent fuel is EXACTLY
it! Far and away more recyclable than anything else. After all - what
else can you recycle back to its original purpose (energy) and get MORE
than you started with? Its also easier to recycle than to process from
But then that's merely rational and logical and what does rationality
and logic have to do with politically correct?
