Alaska U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski - This is no Chernobyl
Some have compared the event to Chernobyl and declared the nuclear power
renaissance dead. But that comparison is incorrect and the prediction
premature. I believe nuclear power will continue to be a viable energy
source in this country for decades to come. What the situation in Japan
does provide is an opportunity to learn from their experiences to make
our operations even safer.
Alaska U.S. Senator Mark Begich hasn't done or said a damn thing that is worth anything.
The environmental release is the
growing challenge; you’re going to read more and more about it in the
paper. Wait until the first cesium-137 shows up in Alaska salmon, which
is only a matter of time. You’re going to find it right back in the
headlines. Lake Barrett, former U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission official and now an adviser to Tepco, March 30, 2011 (at 36:00 in)

more marine life to be impacted as ocean plume arrives (VIDEO)
Since the Fukushima incident, I had wrote extensively on Redcounty.com about Fukushima and criticized Murkowski for her statements.
And Begich being Begich; he is just an idiot.
