Paul Rolly of the Salt Lake Tribune makes jokes about the new name for the Delta Center. Larry H. Miller announced recently that EnergySolutions has purchased the naming rights for the building for the next 10 years. It will now be known as EnergySolutions Arena. I personally have no problems with this. Do I want high-level nuclear waste stored in Utah? No. Do I think it's okay for EnergySolutions to dispose of low-level radioactive waste in Utah? Yes.
I wonder if Mr. Rolly has ever gone and had an x-ray done at the hospital. Has he ever wondered what happened to the hazardous waste that was generated by having that x-ray done? Along with our advances in technology comes a certain amount of hazardous waste. We should be able to dispose of that hazardous waste properly.
