Storing nuclear waste

Regarding Nevadans' protests to the proposed Yucca Mountain nuclear waste storage facility, I ask one question: "Why are they complaining?"

The technology that will be used is state of the art and can withstand and contain the radioactive material for a much longer time than most of the temporary facilities that are being used today.
