Planning for a milliion years hence

I just heard that the EPA is requiring the Department of Energy to certify that the nuclear waste stored in Nevada will be secure for a million years. The D.O.E. is "confident" it can meet the requirement using computer modeling.

How we delude ourselves, as if we could be confident about such a thing. Certain government agencies couldn't even get it right about weapons of mass destruction.
