Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
France Wants EU Nuclear Checks to Exclude Plane Crashes, Terrorist Attacks - Bloomberg
"If they are included then this can't be called `lessons learned from Japan,'" Andre-Claude Lacoste, head of the Autorite de Surete Nucleaire, said today in an interview after a briefing in Paris. "I will do what I can to keep risks from planes and terrorism out of the audits."
Really, WTF!?

So call the exercise something else.

The lesson learned from Japan is not that nukes are vulnerable to tsunamis, but that active cooling is a huge vulnerability.

So, let's see... If saboteurs cur external power and disable the water pumps and emergency generators, it's not the same failure mode as Fukushima?

So, in what may be my last act of "advising", I'll advise you to cut the jargon. -- My old PhD advisor, to me, 26/2/11
