I don't want it. I don't need it. But consider the following and this is just for one country.

"The total plutonium removed from the DOE/DoD inventory for the period 1944 to September 1994 was 12.0 metric tons. Of the 12.0 MT removed 3.4 MT were Expended in Wartime and Nuclear Tests, 2.8 MT were Inventory Differences, 3.4 MT were Waste (Normal Operating Losses), 1.2 MT were consumed by
Fission and Transmutation, 0.4 MT was Decay and Other Removals, 0.1 MT was transferred to U.S. Civilian Industry, and 0.7 MT was transferred to Foreign Countries."

The source is the United States Department of Energy Office of Scientific and Technical Information. To view the source material ... Click Here .

Lets see ... in 50 years they report:
3.4 metric tons were waste.

And that doesn't even begin to address the 2.8 metric tons they refer to as "Inventory Differences" whatever that means. And I hope it doesn't mean that it just walked out the door.
