The IAEA has offices in some very nice locations, I wonder who is feeding them money?
Do you even know what happened at the Three Mile Island accident? Either you don't, or you don't understand just how serious a slagged reactor chamber, heavily contaminated coolant, or a containment building that can no longer be safely entered is in a nuclear power plant...
