The only real problem with this idea is the expense - and would it be any more expensive than the Yucca Mountain facility that foundered on problems with geological stability? Modern technology could build much more durable pyramids that the ancient Egyptians, and there are large areas in the western deserts that will never be of use for anything else. Such structures would "float" on the surface of the land and be immune to earthquakes. They would be vulnerable to large meteor and ICBM strikes - but what isn't? If we wait for absolute security, we will never have a relatively safe storage site for nuclear waste.
