Politics is More Difficult than Physics; How communities can engage in the process to site a Geological Disposal Facility

Lecture Synopsis: “Politics is More Difficult than Physics” - Albert Einstein, Princeton, 1946Geological Disposal forms the basis of Government policy for the management of higher activity radioactive waste.
