US nuclear review gets delayed


I think this is for the best.  They really don't know what they are doing.  It's fine to be all hot and heavy, full steam ahead, and all that.  But how are you going to do it?  Nuclear seismic physics is 30 years old, and they've never done decent seismic monitoring.  We have ridiculous fragility in the old reactors, but what really snapped in Japan?

Now, I'm not saying they are going to do anything useful with the delay, yet it is probably better not to rush.  Here in Canada, we don't have to worry about such things as real reviews.  :)
