My fellow columnist Guy Farmer at the Nevada Appeal disagrees with the proposition of exploring Yucca Mountain as a potential nuclear waste research, reprocessing and storage facility, but found himself in agreement with one aspect of my argument.
“In a recent Nevada Appeal column Chuck Muth argued for a referendum,” Farmer writes. “The Legislature should ‘put an objective advisory question on the ballot … and let the people of Nevada actually vote on it,’ he wrote. Fair enough because I think that a solid majority of Nevada voters remains adamantly opposed to the Yucca Mountain project. A ballot measure would answer that question once and for all. I don’t fear such a measure. Bring it on!”
