Nonsense. The 'high level waste' is tiny tonnage per year, and we know of subduction zones that will keep it out of contact with the biosphere. No isotopes that need 20 billion years to decay can be called 'high level', compared to (for instance) the natural uranium we find everywhere (a few million years halflife),
Some isotopes of concern might last thousands of years, but we routinely avoid arsenic, lead, etc. toxins in the rocks, which NEVER decay to become safe.
The US has
It has taken 50 years of pointless discussions, led by innumerates and naysayers with law degrees, to produce zero agreement. There are real hazards related to early war-effort programs that didn't even pretend to have a long-term plan, we're still cleaning those up, but the 'power business' has been relatively benign by comparison; they do, however, fund folk to counter naysayers with law degrees, which explains the ire of (for instance) innumerates.
