Japan struggles to find disposal site for Fukushima fuel rods

July 28, 2011

Decommissioning of the stricken plant hits a serious snag, reports Nuclear Energy Insider, as no nation will accept the damaged fuel rods (Japan has no secure storage site of its own).

I think the US should accept the rods – Japan is a crucial ally in the Asia/Pacific region, and we owe them a little nuclear quid pro quo, don’t we?  I know the domestic politics of it are not so easy, but it is the right thing to do.
