Douglas Cruickshank had some interesting (and funny) comments to make on
this issue:
http://www.salon.com/people/feature/2002/05/10/yucca_mountain/?x
"The monuments are intended to last for thousands of years -- the waste may
stay toxic for as long as 100,000 years. If everything goes as the DOE
hopes, an archaeological expedition tens of centuries hence will take one
look at these structures and hightail it in the other direction -- just like
we do now whenever we come across mysterious ancient monuments covered with
strange inscriptions and odd images."

Jane Carnall
"They are prisoners of their own dreams and illusions, as we were 30 years
ago. If the issue is between our and their illusions, we will never resolve
the conflict."
Unless stated otherwise, these opinions are mine, and mine alone. Apologies
for the long additional sig: it is added automatically and outwith my
control.
