Interesting quote:

General Electric Co. has defended its Mark 1 reactor — the design at the crippled Japanese complex — as a reliable industry workhorse. Tom Cochran, a nuclear physicist and senior scientist with the Natural Resources Defense Council calls the design “demonstrably deficient.”

He says “the diesel generators are in the basement and spent fuel is in the attic, It should have been the other way around.”


In other news, I understand everyone in the agency is getting their emails (regarding Japan’s accidents) FOIA’ed by the associated press. This should be fun.
