Interview with: Matthew Bunn, co-principal investigator for the Belfer Center’s Project on Managing the Atom and a member of the Center Board of Directors
Topic: Japanese report on Fukushima

“MATTHEW BUNN: Certainly, the earthquake and tsunami ultimately caused the meltdown that happened, but if they had been well enough prepared, if they had had, for example, the diesel generators protected from being flooded, if they had means of water pumping into the cores of the reactors if they lost water, if they had had a better emergency plan, these reactors might have survived.”
