AREVA CEO: Disaster will make nukes safer

What has the nuclear industry learned from four partial meltdowns and the release of vast amount of radiation? Apparently nothing, according to a post on the EnergyBiz blog:

“Nothing has changed,” says Jacques Besnainou, chief executive of Areva North America … referring to the recent events in Japan. “This event will make nuclear safer. We bet on the U.S. 10 years ago and we thing it is still a good bet. Fukushima will not delay the renaissance.”
