For the past seven years,two Swedish towns have been competing for the right to host a high-level nuclear waste storage facility. Strange but true. While most would consider it highly undesirable to have such a plant right on their doorstep,the municipalities of Oskarshamn and Östhammar saw it as an opportunity to ensure that public coffers be full for years to come.Now the company responsible for the nuclear waste,SKB,has made a decision - one of the towns will get the radioactive waste,the other will go empty-handed. A report by Hagen Tober.
