bapinney: Yes, much but not all of the actual reactive mass can be transmuted into other, less dangerous materials. What CAN'T be transmuted is the irradiated concrete, steel, carbon, lead and other materials used in the buildings and that needs to be permanently disposed of.

It's 4.30am here, I'm so tired I can't see straight, and I can't find any actual pages that state the exact amount of time it needs to be stored, but the ones I found take permanent disposal for granted.

From Disposal of high-level radioactive waste by the French Nuclear Agency:
Paragraph IV, line 12:

"With a suitable choice of waste packaging, backfill, and geological environment, the radioactive materials should remain isolated from man's environment for many tens of thousands of years at least.

"

Hey remember this Dinosuars once existed and ruled the world. (Unless you of you wants to argue about this it's fact) Quite a bit of time later and we have nothing but the occasional fossil that shows up that confirms their existence

well said KMeTG. I had no idea there was such hostility to the ideas of incredibly well-evidenced phenomenon like pollution and global warming here on IAB. Really, I'd like to join the debate, but I think I'd just make people more angry by giving them evidence...

The truth is, we haven't been here long enough to even begin to guess whether or not things like global warming would happen anyway. Some evidence suggests that the world is on a cycle, and that ice-ages and warm periods of high sea levels destroying coastal cities might be perfectly normal. I don't know about that.

But what I do know is that pumping out millions of tonnes of Carbon Dioxide every year, along with toxic waste lasting longer than we have even existed as a species, lead in the atmosphere, CFCs, and over-depletion of natural resources like fish can't be helping.

It's up to us to make sure that our children have a world they can live in safely.

Let me illustrate something for you all.

If the timeline of the existence of life on Earth can be scaled down into one fully-grown adult male holding his arms out away from his sides, then the entire history of human culture can be erased with a single stroke with a nail file across his middle finger.

Since life began - which was around 3 billion years ago - the climate of the planet has always been in balance with the life that was on it.

Early humans appeared maybe a few million years ago, with the roots of human civilization dating back possibly 20,000 years. At that point, humans began to take effect, needlessly hunting other animals to extinction, including the sabre-tooth tiger and woolly mammoth to name 2 examples.

However, human pollution really kicked off only a couple of centuries ago.

Billions of years of balance has been thrown out by the events of 200 years ago onwards.

Humans are destructive as drat and we all know it.

haha get this:

radio-active.
what an incredible term.

pretty green glow, too.

That was the first haiku I got from the haiku-o-matic

I can't believe all you people just got bought off with some crappy little poster that doesn't even cite sources? ARE ALL OF YOU THAT UNINTELLIGENT AND INCAPABLE OF CRITICAL THINKING? There are so many inaccuracies with that poster, I can't even begin. Tiredofnicks, you are what's "irresponsible and shortsighted". Most nuclear waste only needs to be stored for 10-50 years until it's practically harmless. The rest can be dealt with by transmutation and other methods. My god, I'm at a loss for words at how moronic you are all. I just--, uh, you people should die-- you are what's wrong with society.

also my throies on human extinction,
#1, nuclear fall out, permant nuclear winter, only the fat kids survive, (they have blubber to keep warm)
#2, in 5 millon years (if we last that long) scientists say the suns soposed to implode in on itself and spray mass amount of radiation though the solar system, once again only roaches and fat kids survive,
#3, chuck norris gets bored and goes to town round house kicking all goverment officals down to local levels, anarchy ensures, we become canniblists, eat the fat kids, and skinny people survive this time

Tourettes, I don't think saying that insects should "die they suck," is hardly a wise viewpoint to have. Not to mention that bit about how "gay" NASA's shuttles are.

"By then, they'll be as much roaches as we are now."
hey just letting you know, theres an estimated 100 roaches per 1 human in the world, theres already alot more of them than us

tired of nicks, your viewpoints are ignorant. second time around i dont believe this garbage. we made the world better, and theres a number of species that should go down with us because they suck. my last post i mostly mentioned insects. they should die they suck.

nuclear power isnt bad!!!!! damn europeans you have it too its not americans that have it we mostly use coal. if nuclear waste is so bad just launch it into space. but we cant use crappy ass rockets or the GAY SHUTTLES NASA has. a big cannon can shoot this stuff into space into empty regions so it wont be our problem anymore!!!!!!

On the other hand, what's to say that what we humans are doing isn't natural? What if this is just the next necessary step in evolution, or if you're a creationist the way God/Shiva/Odin/Allah/Bob intended it?

Rant of the day.

I won't enter the global warming discussion but I have to say this: I can't understand how anyone can justify nuclear power. The waste from every nuclear reactor in use today will still be lethal in several hundred thousand years.

Several hundred thousand years.

It's so much time that it's unfathomable, that it just becomes a number. What our generation is saying to the next two thousand generations or so is "Here, have these piles of slag that kills anything that comes close to them, we created them because we wanted cheap electricity. Keep them safe or well, you'll die. What's that? You don't want them? Not our problem."

Nuclear power is irresponsible and shortsighted. We, as the only species that can make long-term plans should know better.

Oh, and did you know that nuclear power plants has an energy efficiency of something around 4%? That means that only 4% of the energy emitted by the reaction can be converted to usable power like electricity.

Even if the timeline isn't 100% accurate, the truth is the Earth would be better off without mankind. But if we keep raping it, the Earth won't support us any more and we will all face extinction. Obviously the link isn't telling us all to kill ourselves. Humans have seriously messed up the balance of nature, and we need to change or we will all die out. The great tragedy would be taking other, innocent species with us.

sure cows put out more carbon dioxide than humans and their machines, but there are so many cows because we breed them.
