If you do a "fresh look" as you have suggested, may I suggest you do the following: Do an indept study of what the industry has done over the years to further the already excellent safety record, especially after the Three Mile Island Accident. The industry is not a stagnet one, but an evolving one. Increased training, new safety equipment, replacement of out of date control systems, new operating procedures, the creation of an oversite entity called INPO (Institute Of Nuclear Power Operations) are just a few of the many changes that the industry has been going through the last few years. And, of course, the new design of reactors has enhanced the safety even more. Lastly, kudos to Plato and ChrisSteves.
