Responding to Fukushima

I'm not sure exactly how the new regulations compare to the old, or for that matter to the Union of Concerned Scientists' new recommendations, but it's good to see organizations doing their jobs. Contrast this with Japan, where four months after the disaster all the government can come up with is, "Maybe we shouldn't increase nuclear power so much after all." For all the criticism government takes in this country, it's good to see that sometimes it actually does a pretty good job.
