Description (excerpt):

The 2011 accident at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station had a profound impact on nuclear power operators worldwide. The policy discussion on nuclear energy changed from the benefits of this clean energy technology to safety and security—issues that, informed by decades of safe operation, had been largely resolved in the minds of the public.
