User: One of the major problems associated with long-term, high-level nuclear waste storage is (Points : 5) selecting an environment that will remain stable (from volcanic or earthquake activity) for more than 10,000 years. determining a cost-effective way to shoot waste into space. figuring out how to contain the material so that it does not leak into the ocean. creating a secure environment to protect the material from terrorists.

Weegy: figuring out how to contain the material so that it does not leak into the ocean.

User: As of September 2008, through the Megatons to Megawatts Program, about 14,000 Russian nuclear warheads have been (Points : 5) stored widely in the former Soviet Union where they remain today with minimal protection. dismantled, but their nuclear waste remains in Russian facilities with minimal security. dismantled, with the nuclear fuel purchased by the United States for its nuclear power plants. concentrated in two centralized Russian locations with high levels of security, awaiting long-term storage

Weegy: A. 4000

User: In the near future, the number of nuclear power plants in the United States and throughout the world will most likely (Points : 5) decline. hold steady. increase as the US alone has 26 new license applications received and three site permits issued. depend upon the price of oil.

Weegy: The number of nuclear power plants operating in the world will most likely decline over the next two decades with a rather sharper decline to be expected after 2020.
