The U.S. has the largest amount of spent nuclear waste in the world, yet it does not have a single permanent nuclear waste storage site.

In fact, it's quite shocking that thousands of tons of dangerous nuclear waste continue to be put in temporary locations waiting to start a new disaster in the Fukushima pattern. Note: The greatest danger and fallout from the recent nuclear disaster was due to spent nuclear rods. 

The largest U.S. site that was being constructed at Yucca Mountain never came to fruition as it has long been mired in controversy - despite millions of dollars that had already being spent.  And the Blue Ribbon Commission has failed to bring the process any closer with Energy Secretary Chu saying that several permanent nuclear waste storage sites are still needed. However even one looks like a distant dream with tons of nuclear waste being added every day.

Nuclear Waste Storage in USA is a complete Mess
