And what is the likelihood of the whole thing being spewed back out again?

By buring it in the subducting oceanic slab beneath kilometers of rock and pelagic sediments - something that is done by drilling just like we would in placing the waste inland, we don't take the stuff down to the mantle the slow but sure movement of the oceanic plate does.

Nuclear fission will never be the final solution for energy, we simply don't have enough material - but if we are going to move away from hydrocarbons it will play a part and we will need to find the best way to dispose of waste, that includes investigation and consideration of things such as burial at subduction zones or within clay rich sedimentary sequences.

With a deep sea drilling vessel, the cost associated with this would be a major consideration on its feesability.

Which makes nuclear power just that much more expensive, then?

Yes, the most practical reason against it is that in most cases fossil fuels are cheaper; same reason strikes against solar even more.

Down here in australia weve got a big debate as to weather we should change from our current coal power to Nuclear power, im personally for it, it annoys me how those activist groups go on about meltdowns though, chernobyl was craply designed and human error caused the meltdown, theres been 1 nuclear meltdown out of the thousands of plants in the world, oh please, give us a break greenpeace

those left wingers have no understanding of economics


YAY YAY YAY POST NUMBER 200!!!!!!!!

The economics in Victoria are definitely in favour of coal and gas, we are replete with the stuff and it really isn't cost effective for nuclear power - in cases where a nuclear industry can stand on it's merit then that should be considered. Whatever happens here Australia is the worlds second largest Uranium exporter and we stand to make a lot of money on a new generation of nuclear power.
