Ziggy spins: Japan accident will lead to safe nuclear reactors

EVEN IN EARTHQUAKE ZONES, NUCLEAR POWER IS STILL A SAFE OPTION THE AUSTRALIAN, Ziggy Switkowski, 14 March 11,  “…..If core cooling can be satisfactorily restored, then in the best case local residents could return to their homes in days.

Engineers have taken extraordinary steps to get coolant to the reactor of most concern, flooding the core with seawater…….. the combination of venting and seawater flushing should stabilise the situation in the days ahead….We will learn from the tragic Japanese experience how to build more robust reactors, how to ensure multiple layers of protection work properly, how to better contain radioactive gases.
