KPLU: Japan’s meltdown and the future of nuclear power
From NPR & KPLU Radio:
There’s no end in sight to Japan’s nuclear crisis. More radioactive water is leaking from Japan’s crippled nuclear complex, and traces of plutonium have been detected in soil outside the plant. Tokyo Electric Power says the amount is small and isn’t a danger to public health.
Our technology commentator, Strategic News Service publisher Mark Anderson, is keeping a close eye on the situation in Japan. He tells KPLU’s Dave Meyer it’s like watching a train wreck in slow motion, and this crisis is a major setback for the future of nuclear power.
