Nuclear waste in cat litter

Here's another story I tell my students in addition to Cleaning Cleopatra's Needle and the Collosseum and Parasites and prostate cancer.  Discovery News asks and answers Where Do We Store Nuclear Waste?

Nuclear energy is one of the most efficient forms of energy, but it is also very dangerous. Where do we store the radioactive waste? Trace explains where we store it, and if our current method of storage is safe.
I knew the DNews crew was going to mention the cat litter.  My students will get a big kick out of that detail.
