The enormous tragedy in Japan highlights the dangers of nuclear power. Although serious nuclear incidents do not occur very often, they do occur. And when they do, the incidents can have major repercussion. A few decades ago, I worked to stop nuclear plants in the United States. Now, living fairly close to Three Mile Island, I remain sensitive to the dangers. Last year, I wrote a brief memoir on my work on the subject. “Stopping Nuclear Power Plants: A Memoir,” 21 Villanova Environmental Law Journal 35 (2010).
