Ever think about spent nuclear fuel?

No, I didn't think so. But it's something we all have to learn about -- or we're going to be in big trouble.

On her blog, Artichoke Annie has been doing a series of killer posts about the dangers of nuclear power facilities. And she's not just posting -- she's going to official meetings with the nuclear regulatory crowd to try to talk some sense into them about safety issues. Annie's a one-woman band on this topic.

Folks, we need to focus on this issue yesterday. So check out Annie's post for starters. And if you have a blog, link to Annie's blog to drive some traffic there. We have to get the word out about the pressing need for changes in our nuclear regulatory policies. As her post today makes clear, we could easily experience an event far worse than Chernobyl -- and we're doing nothing to reduce the odds of this happening. In fact, we're increasing those odds every day.
