National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has posted the committee report from the second, and final, phase of the lessons learned from Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident. The congressionally mandated study (http://www8.nationalacademies.org/onpinews/newsitem.aspx?RecordID=21874), conducted by 17 distinguished scientists and engineers, including IGPP’s John Orcutt, has determined that the Fukushima accident offers a "wake-up call" as to the risks nuclear fuel pools pose to health and safet
