Panel discussion of the recent Stanford and George Washington University report on a new path to success in disposal of High-Level Radioactive Waste in the United States.
Highly-radioactive nuclear waste from commercial nuclear power plants and defense programs is stranded at 75 sites around the country with no path forward. Correcting this situation requires a Reset of present U.S. policy and law. Members of the Reset committee will discuss the recommendations from the Reset Report (HERE).
