WATCH WEBINAR #4:

CHALLENGING NWMO'S CLAIM OF  AN “INTERNATIONAL CONSENSUS” THAT DGRS ARE THE  PREFERRED AND ACCEPTED OPTION FOR THE STORAGE OF NUCLEAR WASTE.

This fourth webinar in the Protect Our  Waterways series will look at international  experience with proposed deep geological  repositories, challenging the NWMO claim of  an “international consensus” that DGRs are the  preferred and accepted option. Join Panelists  from Sweden and the U.S. who share their  insights and observations about the Swedish  and U.S. national programs for deep geological  repositories, including a status report on their  countries efforts to site, design and bring into  operation a DGR for nuclear fuel waste, and  analysis of related technical and social issues. 

Spoiler alert: there is no deep geological  repository for high level nuclear fuel waste
