Since there are also hints that the present provisions will not be sufficient to finance the "permanent" disposal of radioactive waste from nuclear power reactors it will again be taxpayer's money to fill the financial gap and future generations to pay for.
Who made that law about the disposal of radioactive waste? Did the PPO's bamboozle the lay(wo)men of our government whose experts apparently did not know the difference between provisions and allocations to reserves? Now our Federal Government hastily tries to iron out the blunder. In the future the PPOs shall pay their radioactive waste money cash into a fund, a solution successfully practiced in Switzerland since the beginning of their nuclear age.
