mdsolar writes “A new report from a nuclear watchdog group finds that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission ‘is ignoring its oversight and enforcement responsibilities at the nation’s increasingly leaky, uninspected and unmaintained nuclear power plants.’ Because of this lack of oversight, ‘at least 102 reactor units are now documented to have had recurring radioactive leaks into groundwater from 1963 through February 2009.’ So, the leak at Vermont Yankee that Slashdot has been following is not just a fluke, but is systemic.”
