We have all realized that the way in which the rate of garbage production increases will drown us in various rest products unless more intensive recycling and utilization of waste takes place globally. Still, there are and will be significant quantities of hazardous waste emanating from ordinary industrial work, energy production, and agricultural and medical activities that turn out to be difficult and too expensive to reprocess. Radioactive waste belongs to this category and challenges the scientific society’s capacity to realize ways of safe disposal and storage. It is not the worst rest product, however, since it will be successively less hazardous with time in contrast to certain chemical wastes such as arsenic, cadmium, and mercury, which all remain poisonous forever.
