Less than one month away from the anniversary of the Fukushima-Daiichi disaster – the world's largest since Chernobyl – the Nuclear Regulatory Commission granted a license to build and operate two reactors at a nuclear plant in Georgia. These will be the first reactors built in the U.S. since 1978. Matt Wald is a reporter for our partner The New York Times who has covered nuclear power for 30 years.
