Offers for schools
But that does not mean it is easy: just like with climate change, scientific data alone are not sufficient to solve the problem. Politicians and society must also to be willing to tackle it.

This question contains explosive material for discussion. Come and explore the complex topic of deep geological disposal. We are happy to help you.
