7 Years on, Sailors Exposed to Fukushima Radiation Seek Their Day in Court

7 Years on, Sailors Exposed to Fukushima Radiation Seek Their Day in Court --Special investigation: US military personnel are sick and dying, and want the nuclear plant's designers and owners to take responsibility. | 09 March 2018 | ...There are currently 99 operating civilian nuclear reactors in the United States, and 22 of those are General Electric Mark 1 boiling-water reactors--the make and model identical to the three that melted down and exploded at Fukushima Daiichi. Based on a 1955 design, all but four of the US reactors have now been online for more than 40 years. All of them have the same too-small primary containment vessel, the same questionable alloys, the same bolted-on lid, the same safety systems, and (with one exception) the same vent "upgrade" that failed to prevent the tragic failures at the Japanese nuclear plant. Large US cities, such as Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, are all closer to BWRs than Tokyo is to Fukushima Daiichi.
