RAD REPORT New Licences Should Be Delayed

Special to HuntingtonNews.Net

Nuclear Engineer Arnie Gunderson of Fairewinds Assoc. calls for Nuclear Regulatory Commission to delay licensing of nuclear power plants in US.

Gundersen implores Congress and NRC to think outside the box. Pause licensing of new nukes and 20-year-life extensions until the lessons learned from Fukushima are applied. Fairewinds Associates recommends that regulators look at the feasibility of emergency evacuation plans, containment leakage, and aging management plans for 40-year-old Fukushima model reactors.
