Rubio: I support opening Yucca Mountain

Rubio: "Yeah . . . we've already invested money into that facility . . . there has to be such a facility in the United States. That's the one that was chosen long ago, and money was invested. If someone has a better idea...then we'd be open to that. We should follow the science on that. But the bottom line is we, today, including here in South Carolina, are holding onto nuclear material in areas that were supposed to be temporary areas, that have become permanent holding areas for used, radioactive material, and long-term, that is not a safe way to store these things. So you do need a permanent, central depository for it. Yucca Mountain is the place that's gotten the money, and it was chosen years ago. So unless someone can identify a better project, that's the one we should move forward on."

The truth about Yucca Mountain
Don't let political ANTICS prevent the science and engineering behind the
YUCCA MOUNTAIN Application Study!

This is an open invitation to all candidates to support this statement:

“Although I am uncommitted on Yucca Mountain as a nuclear storage facility,
I do believe that the Department of Energy Application process should be completed”.


Dr. Carson, "it's time to at least have a discussion" . . . if the science is correct

The Yucca Mountain Study is one of the most critical ISSUES in America to our electrical power supply. Roughly 20% of our power comes from nuclear generation which has operated SAFER than any other volume energy source. Our mission for 10 + years has been to enlighten the grassroots public a basic educational understanding of nuclear, the NATIONS need for the Yucca storage repository AND provide an insight to nuclear waste REPROCESSING technology.

Nuclear power is basically a 97% carbon free energy source.
It should be classified as a green renewable as suggested by Arizona Senator Steve Smith (link below).

Nuclear technology (science) has continued to make major progress that our government and industry are failing to educate our grassroots public.


Our message to the grassroots:
some statistical FACTS about the "Application Study"


The Yucca Mountain Study: These are the facts, the grassroots public in Nevada and nationwide should know about Yucca Mountain: It is a thirty year study by 8 of Americas national laboratories, input and review recommendations from more than 100 US colleges and universities with a taxpayer investment into the study of more than $10+ Billion. The license application was reviewed by more than 200 scientists and engineers at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission with no disqualifying elements found. To put it bluntly, political opposition to such an encompassing study carries no merit. Nearly every stakeholder in the world managing nuclear waste observed the Yucca Mountain study. The degree of this study has been overwhelming. Politicians who attempt to discredit this study are an embarrassment to themselves and logic and common sense. It is time for Congress, the Senate and Nevada’s public to move the Yucca Mountain Study through completion and tell the politicians to terminate their political antics.

Reprocessing Used Nuclear Fuel

A technological overview & proposal for Yucca Mountain, Augustus Merwin PhD. Candidate

Nuclear Power is a Renewable Energy Resource!

Arizona Senator Steve Smith, told a committee that by not recycling nuclear fuel rods like some European countries do, Arizona (America) is missing out on a lot of potential energy. "Basically we just want to burn that energy twice, "he said, and should Arizona (America) decide to incorporate that technology in the future, his bill, SB 1134, would allow us to count that as a renewable energy source.
