News reports just mentioned the US NRC Commisioner recommended that Americans in
Japan should keep themselves 50 miles from the Fukushima site.
This must be part of the NRC's new program to establish a 50 mile EPZ [vs. 10
miles now ] around the 104 US reactors. Why have a 10 mi. EPZ [ 78 sq. miles]
when a 50 mile radius [1963 sq. miles] is seemingly needed per the NRC
Commissioner for another country?
Is today's NRC Commissioner recommendation a component of a new Federal Full
Employment Act initiative for increasing nuclear plant EPZ planners by a factor
of 25? I'm sure certain interests are salivating at the opportunity to
introduce new legislation to force an increase in the current EPZ from a radius
of 10 to 50 miles since the NRC seems to think it's advisable.
