USNRC Head is a Geologist - wants earthquake studies

Article

This won't go far, but it's nice to see.  When the plants were being built, there was a big burst of seismic and geologic studies for the East.  Then, they got in some weird studies which led them to believe they were totally immune to earthquakes, and not a penny was spent on seismic monitoring and such.

Without nuclear money, the seismic monitoring is pathetic in the States.  There has never been a seismic reflection study showing the Precambrian megathrusts.  So sad.

Ontario remains smug, and the regulator is a toadie shell.
