      The Fukushima disaster was a dark chapter for nuclear power - but high-profile accidents are far from the only downside. EPA/KIMIMASA MAYAMA/AAP Accidents, waste and weapons: nuclear. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

    1 Introduction. This introduction is based on a White Paper distributed to the participants of the , symposium titled The Science and Response to a Nuclear Reactor is intended to provide factual background information on federal and state responsibilities related to responding to a nuclear reactor accident and nomenclature related to protective action guidance at the.   By contrast, in 60 years of nuclear power, only three accidents have raised public alarm: Three Mile Island in , which killed no one; Fukushima in , which killed no one (many deaths.

    In March , a massive earthquake and tsunami triggered a severe nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in northern Japan. Three reactors suffered nuclear meltdowns, releasing significant amounts of radiation and stunning a world that had been led to believe that nuclear power was safe.

Books about nuclear war are, to many people, the founding cornerstones of post apocalyptic all, it was the dawning of the nuclear age that brought the possibility of imminent catastrophe to the forefront of the public consciousness, a time when total atomic annihilation seemed never more than a button-push "golden age" of post apocalyptic fiction birthed and inspired.

The nuclear power industry has improved the safety and performance of reactors, and has proposed new safer (but generally untested) reactor designs but there is no guarantee that the reactors will be designed, built and operated correctly. Mistakes do occur and the designers of reactors at Fukushima in Japan did not anticipate that a tsunami generated by a such unexpected large earthquake.

There are many ways to quantify the risk of accidents in nuclear energy systems. The Farmer curve is one of the standard tools of nuclear risk assessment, with the risk defined as “probability × consequences”. Typical Farmer plots display the annual frequency of fatalities or of property damage from human made sources of risk.

Context. Globally, there have been at least 99 (civilian and military) recorded nuclear reactor accidents from to (defined as incidents that either resulted in the loss of human life or more than US$50, of property damage, the amount the US federal government uses to define major energy accidents that must be reported), totaling US$ billion in property damages.
