Reuters, Alina Selyukh: Although no U.S. company now reuses its nuclear waste, the country has a long-running history with the technology. Following are timeline highlights of the U.S. inquiry into reprocessing and events that framed it. Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton were most influential in stopping reprocessing of used nuclear fuel. This material along with depleted uranium from enrichment programs can provide all the electrical energy needs at 1994 levels for over 700 years. If our enemies took this much energy away from America, there would be all out war. But our Presidents and Congress can do that without much of a stir from the American people.
