The slow motion events occurring at Japan's (or GE's) Fukushima reactor cannot be sugar-coated. It is a doomsday scenario unfolding. Nuclear reactors are not the same as coal/oil/gas electricity plants -- they cannot be turned off.
Given the importance of nuclear energy, it is critical we continue to work with the international community. In Vienna next week, I will offer ideas for how we can promote an international "fuel bank" to encourage the peaceful use of nuclear power.
