US Senator Pete Domenici writes in his book “A Brighter Tomorrow: Fulfilling the Promise of Nuclear Energ”: “nuclear power plants roam the world daily without any significant problems. He says, “Nuclear power is safe and sure. Every week, one or two nuclear power plants dock at a major port in America or somewhere else in the world. And these power plants have been doing so for half a century now. … No accidents of any kind have ever marred these dockings, no leaks have cleared blocks of cities; no emergencies have been declared.”[1]
