ABSTRACT
The author explores the lessons learned from the nuclear disaster in Japan. He cites several reasons why a nuclear disaster is a possibility in Japan, including the 1960s design of five Fukushima-I reactors and the a crowded earthquake and tsunami prone zone populated by 127 million people and containing 54 reactors. He explains the costs and time required to build nuclear plants which he claims negate their climate protection purpose. He calls on the U.S. to consider the safety of new reactors and why it should build more and keep operating unsafe units.
