I am trying to imagine where in the Yucatan or the region of the Yucatan there is a geological structure that would be suitable to storing nuclear waste.
See, now that the news is out, the entire area where Mexico disposes of it's waste will be scrutinized by the cartels.
The problem I am having with this entire issue of Third World nuclear storage is the actual facility itself. See, the Yucatan has a karst geological formation. The karst geology is porous. If the containment facility in Mexico is in this area and isn't well lined and protected, there is a chance sea water could cause corrosion of the containers.
Sorry to make more of this nightmare than it already is, but, better to address all the concerns than just one.
