It's good we have it. I just wish there wasn't hazardous material to deal with.

There will always be hazardous materials. We need to accept that. Unfortunately.

No matter what era you're in, there will always be hazardous materials, and HazMat teams to deal with it. Plus, HazMat teams respond to all types of calls, not just spills. Strange odors, air testing, unidentified liquids, airports for unattended luggage calls, also along with the bomb squad, and a bunch of other calls too.

It should be purged. That would suck for us, but help the rest of the planet.

The major problem is population increase. More people need more power, which means more hazmat.

Jut give it a few years until we get nuclear fusion generators out of the testing stage and set up for commercial use... more power than nuclear fission but with none of the waste materials :) unless the oil reserves run out first... then it's permaculture lessons and a vegan diet for us all =/

Nuclear fission is pretty cool. Geothermal is the best method, I think.

I don't think any of those things will work, honestly.
