Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Gregory Jaczko is resigning from his post

1 post / 0 new

His announcement comes today after months of infighting on the NRC – as pro-nuclear industry commissioners clashed with Jaczko on new safety regulations and what to do with Yucca Mountain.

As Ryan Grimm at the Huffington Post reports – Jaczko’s ouster is a result of him acting against corporate interests and thus being targeted in a smear campaign that accused Jaczko of being abusive toward women – claims that were completely unfounded.

With a nuclear crisis in Japan still ongoing – it’s crucial that United States regulators don’t fall victim to regulatory capture that puts Americans at risk of a Fukushima-like disaster in the near future.
