UCS post on storage of spent nuclear fuel

The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) just added a post yesterday giving a guide to the resources on its website about the risks and benefits of different methods of storing spent nuclear fuel.  It is here:  http://allthingsnuclear.org/post/3991373119/dry-cask-storage-vs-spent-fuel-pools

The UCS concurs with the NAS recommendation to store spent fuel in dry casks rather than in spent fuel pools.  It does not view reprocessing as a solution to the problem of nuclear waste; some of the resources discuss reprocessing as well.
