Using case studies focusing on the Yucca Mountain, Nevada Nuclear waste dump, the chapter analyzes the concepts of equal treatment, duties to future generations, and proxy consent. It also shows how these three values are threatened in the Nevada case, and it argues that indigenous people have been especially victimized by nuclear activities that violate principles of environmental justice.
