The effort to build the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository has been a decades-long political struggle. On August 13th, 2013, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion ordering the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to re-start the legally-mandated licensing process and continue reviewing a Department of Energy application for the waste repository. Our expert told the story of Yucca’s history and analyze the decision and its implications.
