Nuclear risk perception


Hey, this is my lost CBC thing!  There seems to be a zillion articles on the big anniversary, but sooner or later they have to strike home.

If the nuclear-power industry is to have a future, one thing is clear: It will have to rely less on an engineer's view of acceptable risk, and more on the common public perception that a meltdown that threatens to contaminate tens of millions of people cannot be tolerated.

PULEEZE!  This is just the attitude of current 'claptrap' operators, who are all factory engineers.  I, of course, have called them 'janitors'.  Surely there must be one exception to the rule!  :)
