Nuclear in Alaska? The future is here

News-Miner opinion: The 2019 HBO series “Chernobyl” did little to ease apprehensions about nuclear power. The same can be said about the 2011 Fukushima disaster. Both events — the fictionalized drama about the 1986 Ukrainian plant meltdown and cleanup, and the real-life drama surrounding the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Okuma, Japan, caused by a magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami — reinforced the idea of nuclear energy as a fission fiasco.

If you’re apprehensive about any sort of nuclear power, Gwen Holdmann might change your mind about that.
