Cristine Russell – Japan’s Nuclear Challenges

David speaks with journalist Cristine Russell about the challenges facing Japan as they face a possible nuclear meltdown in the wake of the disastrous earthquake and tsunami that hit the country and more importantly three of the country’s nuclear reactors. Russell, a senior fellow in the environment and natural resource program at the Belfer Center for Science and international affairs at Harvard, uses prior meltdowns from Three Mile Island and Chernobyl as benchmarks for the challenges Japan faces in the coming weeks and months.
