GAO – Government Shut Down Yucca Facility for Political Reasons, Not Scientific Ones

Posted by iusbvision on May 13, 2011

Remember when Obama said that science was going to have it’s rightful place restored in policy?

Well he shut down the facility in order to help Harry Reid’s re-election, but the permitting process to build a new facility will take 34 years.

There was nothing wrong with the old location besides the fact that Reid didn’t like it. What is our nuclear industry to do now? The Obama Administration has found yet another way to increase our energy costs.

Ed Morrissey and the NYT have more to say HERE.
