Not Exactly Geothermal Energy

Switzerland is proposing to store radioactive wastes in deep artificial caverns. The location of these caverns is sill not decided, but many of the localities involved were not so happy about the situation. Each well should be 2000 meters (6’600 feet) deep. Now, there are only three potential locations remaining. For one of the wells in Aargau (north-central Switzerland), there were 419 complaints about the idea, 99% from individuals. Here is an interim report about the situation. Again, sorry that I have not had the time to translate these from the Swiss German. The source is the Swiss TV Teletext seervice.
