When on-the-job training is a bad thing
by Andrew Kiraly | posted May 23, 2011

With Yucca shelved -- or at least temporarily tabled -- the government now has to consider training inspectors to properly keep an eye on the nuke waste that looks to be indefinitely stuck at on-site storage. Turns out that according to a government report -- doh! -- they never gave much thought to training them before.
