In this article the author challenges Senator Harry Reid's opposition to the Yucca Mountain project, which aims to build a repository for nuclear waste in Nevada. According to the author, the underground project is so far off unpopular or unknown roads and is adjacent to the Nuclear Test Site. He points out that in reality the Yucca Mountain can only be used for storing dangerous nuclear waste. He believes that there are still several congressional members who want the project to proceed.
