Study: Earthquake could exceed nuclear power plant design

Bakersfield Now reports.

Daniel Hirsch, a lecturer on nuclear policy at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and a critic of the nuclear power industry, called the findings “deeply troubling.”

“As Fukushima demonstrated, earthquakes larger than a reactor was built to withstand can have devastating consequences. PG&E’s nonchalant response, that everything is OK anyway, suggests that they just don’t get it,” Hirsch said.
