Wracket, I'm wondering about your opinion on the nuclear waste issue. For instance the French have a plans for a mountain, but is it acceptable? Is the risk that they built the plants without a way of disposing of the high level waste at that time an acceptable risk?

I'm not aware of specific plans for French nuclear waste, but I do understand that the French nuclear industry has at least some generators which produce little to no waste (by recycling the nuclear fuel). If I happen upon any links to that I'll post them here.

Clearly the storage/disposal of all toxic waste is a major issue, with nuclear being no different. This is currently a quite expensive aspect of the cycle, though perhaps the newer generation reactors will also involve more "recycling" of the nuclear fuel.
