What is the best nuclear waste storage plan that we have so far?

    Unfortunately, it seems that the best plan we have so far is the one we have been doing for years: above ground storage.  However, there are many problemss with this as well, perhaps the most puzzling being that of location.  It is extremely difficult to win public approval for a nearby nuclear storage facility, and many factors have to be taken into consideration.  Are there valuable resources in the location that will no longer be accessible?  Are there environmental consequences to storing the waste in that particular location?  Is it safe enough?  Reprocessing the waste is also an option, but the U.S. does not do this due to policies to limit nuclear proliferation; weapons-grade plutonium is a byproduct.
