Nuclear Threat Assessment

More Than Only Three Mile Island

It doesn't take an earthquake and/or tsunami to cripple a nuclear plant... Anything that shuts off the electricity risks catastrophe.

Rachel Maddow reviews a litany of malfunctions and safety problems at American nuclear facilities that are not part of common pubic knowledge and offers suggestions for bolstering back-up systems.

Some environmental groups say the nuclear disaster in Japan is a wake-up call and they would not support building new U.S. nuclear plants. Others say that nuclear power is still one of the safest technologies invented. But both sides agree that the priority should be to examine existing U.S. nuclear plants for safety risks.
