    Why are we still talking about storage of spent nuclear fuel? We have had technology for 40 years or more to reprocess it into useable fuel. Any weapons grade material can be used in newer nuclear power plants to generate more power.

    Plus, if we reprocess it that means that we don't have to dig holes in the ground mining it.
