The NRC Strikes (Out)

Yeah, Part SIX...

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is investigating a leak of tritium that occurred at the Indian Point nuke plant in New York. Officials believe the leak originated in the spent-fuel pools.

The nuclear power industry, of course, would prefer that the investigation go away. Safety costs money, after all... and that money could be better spent in executive bonuses.

Or should that be bonii?

Want some info on tritium? Read Tom Clancy's Sum of All Fears.
