Nuclear Retractors

"I've been a supporter of nuclear power for years…and all I can say is, oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.”

That’s Noel Corngold, an emeritus physics professor at CalTech, to  Reuters.  The article includes backtracking by William Tucker, author of  Terrestrial Energy: How Nuclear Power Will Lead the Green Revolution and End America's Energy Odyssey (Bartleby Press, 2010) who wrote an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal on March 14 proclaining that “it is trivializing and almost obscene to spend so much time worrying about damage to a nuclear reactor.” Today he told the news service: “I think that story probably has to be revised, we seem to be in deeper water now than we were originally. I think we are facing another Chernobyl now or something on that order."
