    It's a start. But you can only improve an old model so many times before it becomes pointless. I'd much rather see a new plant built with state of the art saftey systems already factored into the design instead of just adding or remodeling a few components.

    Gee, but I thought the head of the USNRC told congress in march that US plants were absolutely safe from all earthquakes and tsunami? You mean he LIED?

    So what do people who were advocating a US-based panel of experts to provide solutions to Fukushima Daiichi think now? Still so confident in foreign experts as superior to Japanese ones?

    For me, its the same everywhere, only the flag and the language change.

    lol, I doubt that. I mean a 9.0 earthquake could happen tomorrow, and a tsunami then could sweep accross the land, wiping out cities and towns, oh yes, and damaging a nuclear reactor. A few hundred thousand people might be killed by the tsunami, but no big deal, what matters is that the nuclear reactor might fail, and a few people, might get cancer 20 years from now...

    Learn from them? I believe they have. What they've learned is not that they need to stop nuclear power. They've also learned, that it takes a major disaster to deal damage to them, and that if they take even modest precautions, they can operate them safely.
