Obama to Shut Down Yucca Mountain

After 30 years, five presidents and $13 billion dollars, the Obama administration is pulling the plug on Yucca Mountain, the federal government's proposed storage facility for America's nuclear waste.

For a candidate who said he wanted to get politics out of science, critics find the president's decision hypocritical and shortsighted, at a time when nuclear energy is making a comeback.

This is what comes of programs that the government runs. Years of wasted money only to be shut down. Obviously, increasing relance of nuclear power is now no longer a viable option, which is probably how Obama wants it.
