Edwards was for it before....

John Edwards said in the debate last night that although he voted for using Yucca Mountain as a nuclear waste storage facility, he now does not support it. His reasoning? ...'because there is new technology'.

So, because there is new technology that may reduce the amount of waste that needs disposing, Edwards is against it???

Argonne’s spent-fuel recycling may reduce nuclear waste storage shortage.

Argonne’s new approach to recycling spent fuel from commercial nuclear reactors could help solve an expected international shortage of repository space for disposing of nuclear wastes.

In a single step, commercial fuel, which is a ceramic, can be converted to a metallic form for processing with Argonne’s pyroprocessing technology. This technology can greatly reduce the amount of waste that needs disposal in a repository.

To someone in the world of loony liberal logic this makes sense.
