phobos13013 writes: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission held a public meeting on Friday with nuclear activist group Beyond Nuclear in response to a petition calling for the closure of all Fukushima-type Boiling Water Reactors in the US. The petition calls for the closure of 24 reactors total at 17 locations (not all are power generation facilities) including the Oyster Creek facility, the oldest in the US, and the embattled Vermont Yankee facility. Archive video and audio of the meeting can be found at the NRC's website.
