Earthquake aftermath: are nuke plants too risky?

(FRIDAY 3/11/11) The devastation in Japan has caused a potential radiation danger at one of that country's nuclear facilities. Unfortunately, several nuclear plants in the US were built on earthquake fault lines, and many people believe it's only a matter of time before we have a national catastrophe.
Listen to the feisty debate between our two guests, nuclear physicist Lee Boyland and environmental activist Harvey Wasserman.

  1. nice piece here...kudos to the engineers in Japan that designed the plants...they did not fail...Harry Wasserman just proved himself to be an idiot that was trying to further his senseless cause

  2. The building is still that the best you've got? Mr. Wasserman trying to save the lives of millions of people is not a senseless cause. As I told Lee Boyland on Friday, Mother Nature bats last and her batting average is much better than ours. You'd better hope for more than the "building is still standing." You'd better be prepared for a 10.0, 12.0 or even a 20.0 because failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
