Who should decide where to store radioactive waste?

Nuclear waste repositories are a unique political project: the decision lasts for hundreds of thousands of years – that’s how long the waste is dangerous for. It has to be stored somewhere, but hardly anyone wants it near them.

Who do you think should decide where repositories are built: scientists, the government or the local population?
