Tom Clements addresses nuke safety after Virginia earthquake

In an article published at The Hill.com, South Carolina Green Party candidate for US Senate Tom Clements addressed the risks exposed by the earthquake in Virginia.

“This event affirms that reactors located outside active earthquake zones are also at risk and that increased steps to protect against earthquakes must be implemented at all sites. It is time to push aside industry and NRC foot-dragging and strengthen nuclear reactor safety regulations.”
