Complete List of US Nuclear Power Plants: US Concerns After Japan
After the Japan Disaster, Some Are Wondering About US Nuclear Power Plants. Here is a List of US Nuclear Power Plants
The nuclear reactor disaster following the Japan earthquake and tsunami has raised concerns about the safety of nuclear energy.
Some in the US are wondering about American nuclear power plants and their safety. One nuclear official Arnold Gundersen told Reuters that the US needs to think about its own nuclear power plants, especially ones like the Vermont Yankee, which is similar to Japan's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.
Gunderson notes that officials need to reconsider what they would consider a worst-case scenario.
"What we called a maximum credible accident last week is no longer maximum credible. We really need to go back and evaluate what really is the worst case," Gundersen said. "I don't think we've take a hard look at what the worst case is for Vermont Yankee's flood issues."
Meanwhile, Energy Secretary Steven Chu says that the US should not stop its plans to build new US nuclear power plants.
