A Legacy: The Eternal Nuclear Dump

Posted in Bob Higgins at Clean Technica, Environment, Nuclear Power, Politics by Bob Higgins on August 17, 2011


I got an email this morning inviting me to host a screening for a documentary film titled  “Into Eternity.” It’s the story of Onkalo which means hiding place or cave, a nuclear waste repository being constructed in Finland,  The film delves into the ethical questions of storing nuclear waste for centuries and the building of a facility to last 100,000 years when no structure that we know of has lasted a tenth that long.

I’ve been against the continued development of nuclear power and weapons since grade school when they used to send us to the basement to prepare for a Russian nuclear attack by crouching in the boiler room, covering our heads with our arms and kissing our little butts goodbye.
