I've asked the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to do a comprehensive review.
Of the safety of our domestic nuclear plants in light of the natural disaster that unfolded in Japan.
Well it's only a review but maybe it should serve well as a warning because remember what happened -- president got nervous about offshore drilling.
We -- drilling so is this as good as no -- all over again.
Nils Diaz actually headed up the Nuclear Regulatory Commission under president George W.
What do you make of this review.
Well I believe it is inevitable is something that have to happen provide relief.
That he will be don't -- the NRC which is an independent body I think the review will be sound.
We'll be gone far only an idea and I will think -- will be revealed that nuclear power plants are very safe secure.
That they are mostly.
You know are not in this own that will have BS postal where tsunami and -- -- earthquake of this -- -- cute.

And and that has raised questions.
How they picked these things apart one at a time and at the very least don't see more of them.
Well they are nuclear power plants -- calls to -- lines but there are non.
That actually how far I mean ever supposed to be as Miami do in Iran earthquake and the tsunami.
Even in their planting the outlook kinda young is in that case you know close to -- son Andre asphalt.
I don't think it's it's local problem might -- you bought.
We have taken steps after 9/11.
To secure all -- nuclear power plants in this country.
In -- monitor that provide lay your self defense and I think that's when their review is gonna do.

And many along the coast and I'm thinking to myself self if we have.
Another earthquake there are already figured -- close to the tsunami that Japan expressed how vulnerable are that it.
They are some vulnerability.

And they probably have never experienced an eight point 99 point zero.
-- -- earthquake.
The other ones in around the country are mostly in the east and those are not.
Really subjected to those forces but like I said we have -- -- tremendously.
In the last ten years or providing an additional layers of the fans.
That would prevent.
This catastrophe -- -- taking place.
Even -- some some behavior happen.
We can take very quick actions to reduce the accident to assumption that will not -- -- -- -- the public health and safety.
