I listened to an interview on PBS with a spokesperson of the "Union of Concerned Scientists" about the NRC Nuclear report on power plant safety in 2011. Article here:

The interviewer from PBS seemed to want to hype these 15 "near misses" as a virtual doomsday scenario.... surprisingly, the UCS guy came across as pretty rational, explaining that there were many violations that were being worked on (but stressing that many plants were out of compliance and had been for some time).
