Nuclear news to keep you awake at night

I just read a thought-provoking article in ScienceDaily that might add to my insomnia.

There are 64 new nuclear reactors under construction in the world at this moment--27 in China alone. After Fukushima, that might raise some eyebrows.

But the alarming thing is that 19 of these are being built in areas prone to tsunamis.

Was March 2011 so far back in our memories that any responsible company, or country, could risk another Fukushima?
