    Roland, these arguments are fairly convincing. Old salt mines are a dubious solution. Their presence establishes dryness for millions of years. But the same argument shows that they can rapidly become unstable if water does break in.
    But there are some problems. Old power stations are regarded as ugly. This negative image will be strengthened if they become rubbish stores. Nobody will want to live within miles of one. They will remain as monuments to short sightedness. No politician will want to be associated with such a thing.
    Also, I am sure they were not built to last 200 years. The concrete will start to crumble before then.
    I too hope that science and technology will find solutions to the problems of the next 200 years. But if we add to these problems it may all become too much.

    This may be plausible for Germany, but loses relevance when other countries still expand nuclear power. Can the French or Americans develop a better solution?
