    We should hire flat-earthers to take the waste to Antarctica and throw it over the edge of the Earth.

          Once the tunnels finnished in Finnland, some one will say, 'hey, ah we actually found a way to break down the harmfull byproduct. Can you dig it back up?'

                  Long time solution is not needed. Because high radiation is good for environment, it's just bad for people. Wild life in Chernobil just booming there.

                          you can bet Finland will ask top Euro for companies and nations to store nuclear waste there.

                                  Better message: “This is the storage site of dangerous material. It hurts you by emitting energy you can not see, can not hear, can not smell, can not feel, and can not taste. The material is waste and presents nothing to you but danger. It can’t even be weaponized. We have sealed away this waste and contained it’s harmful properties but the possibility of a leak still remains. It is best to leave this place abandoned.”

                                    not cleaner than wind? Honestly wind is really filthy when considering all the energy needed to make those very frequently replaces wings. They wear out ya know. Smelted how? Well.. usually coal..
                                    Not to mention transport.

                                    As for storage, real easy, dig a hole in a mountain. Find a stable area and leave the copper tubes there. I went into the depths of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onkalo_spent_nuclear_fuel_repository it has been in use for some time already. Watched them deposit one of the capsules.

                                    Sure eventually it will fill up, but by then there should be many more such caves dug.

                                      Oh and the "curse of the ancient gods" just makes for better archeologists in another 15000 years after the end of this humanity and a rise from modern hunter gatherers. Just like after atlantis fell in 10600BC and technological civilisation ceased after the meteor cracked canadian iceberg (with a melted water ocean flooding (sealevels rose 150m over night, weather patterns changed, sahara became a desert etc.. and yes atlantis in mali died (see eye of sahara))).
                                      If there are no lethal dangers, explorers get lazy and stupid. The dumb survive etc. Such death traps are good for future evolution.
                                      In the future if their archeologists are as dumb as ours they will call those deposits religious mazes. Possibly related to Moneytauros[!] (lol), and it was sealed because of astrological reasons.
                                      Then they find the treasure vaults and the curse strikes.

                                    What happens if someone of a bad moral character thinks it is a weapon or something in the future and decides to dig anyways?

                                          Finland is not devoid of natural disasters. Finland has recent volcano eruptions such as Eyjafjallajokull.

                                            Ok, so there woried that the things that discover the waste won speak the right language. But they also can make the sight disappear because the internet and books have it documented. Well if they can read enough from books to learn the location, they can read the danger signs

Mistakes made during surgery? RX allergic reactions? When you do the math and then look at the energy that is harnessed , the illogical fear from it becomes laughable. If you still promote scaremongering then tell me WHAT other power supply we can switch to. And switch to almost immediately...

I don't find this to be an insurmountable problem that requires human maintenance for 1000s of years. The uranium unearthed NOW does not require our care. And how about you just don't mark the spot you buried it? Trying to come up with symbols draw attention. If the area looked like every other plain wilderness no one is going to go looking.

Lets say some group of scientists 4000 years from today will dig up a nuclear waste container. They open it and get a radiation sickness possibly killing one or two of them. The rest will be like "Wow the mystery box sure is dangerous, maybe thats the reason why it was buried deep underground in the first place. We should not have opened it, lets put it back". It's not like they would dig up every single container, put them on display on major cities and spread the insides everywhere just in case (okay, we have always done it ever since we discovered something old in the ground but after the first people have died from the radiation sickness, people start to agree that maybe it's not the best idea to dig up these death cylinders)
