Japanese nuclear incident could affect public sentiment in SC - WIS News 10 - Columbia, South Carolina |

By Jack Kuenzie -

"This is a nightmare scenario, and it's real, it's happening and it could happen at any nuclear plant," said Tom Clements, who works with the environmental group Friends of the Earth.

Clements is no friend of nuclear power generation, and what he sees happening in Japan convinces him the U.S. and especially this state need to slow down on construction new nuclear plants. "We are in an area where there could be a big earthquake, so I think another step for prudence would be to halt the design review and look back into the earthquake threat that we face here in Columbia, South Carolina at the V.C. Summer plant," said Clements.
