Nuclear waste rods glow green. They have to be kept underwater to keep them cool. Nuclear energy is a bad idea.

At my plant, they are stored under water for a long time, until they cool down. Then they are moved to shielded containers and stored dry, the the appropriately named Dry Used Fuel Storage building.

What's your opinion of a Thorium reactor?

That is quite wrong. You can search "nuclear waste rods" and see tons of pictures of blue rods. I have personally stood at the cooling tanks, looked down and saw a soft blue light emanating from the rods. Do any amount of research and you will also see that nuclear is the safest and one of the most efficient forms of energy.
