About this book

Current US policy regarding high-level radioactive waste is to bury it in specially designed deep depositories. The author, working on the premise that what you can't see, can hurt you, argues that this policy is misguided. She cites the world's first radioactive waste facility at Yucca Mountain, Nevada as an example.
