As Japan Says Fukushima Disaster "Man-Made & Preventable", Fears Grow for Nuclear Plants

"There are 23 plants in the United States that are essentially identical to all three of the Daiichi plants that blew up. I am of the opinion they should all be shut down. We had a bad design back in the 70s."

"The amount of radiation released was clearly as much as Chernobyl. But most of it headed out to sea. That by the way wouldn't be the case in Illinois for instance where these reactors are surrounded no matter which go ahead."

"I am concerned that the nuclear industry in the United States will say it's a Japanese problem and it's not. The influence of corporate money has a serious effect on Congress. It's not a Democrat or Republican issue. There are no Democrats or Republicans when it comes to nuclear. They're are all pro-nuclear."
