As New England accumulates nuclear waste -- which it produced -- it eyes now-tabled Yucca Mountain with longing in its heart -- and lawsuits on its mind:

An empty $11 billion hole in a Nevada mountainside, a broken promise from the U.S. government to remove the radioactive waste, and mounting bills that could still saddle New England with mothballed plants and hundreds of spent-fuel casks, turning communities into mini-nuclear waste dumps for decades, if not forever.

"It's the most expensive dry hole we've ever built," said Dave Lochbaum, a nuclear engineer and director of the Union of Concerned Scientists' Nuclear Safety Project. "Who would trust the government with a dollar after they've wasted billions? We've messed this up as bad as we possibly could."
