Following the events at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power reactors in March 2011, then ANS President Joe Colvin formed the ANS Special Committee on Fukushima. The Special Committee was charged with providing a clear and concise explanation of the events surrounding the accident to the general public and U.S. leaders. The release of this report is the culmination of a nearly year-long effort by Special Committee members to analyze a range of factors related to what happened at the Fukushima Daiichi facility.
The report will be officially released at a press conference to be held at 10:00 am EST on Thursday, March 8, at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. ANS Executive Director Robert Fine will make opening remarks and introductions. Drs. Dale Klein and Mike Corradini, the Special Committee co-chairs, will lead the discussion of the report and the Q&A session. Special Committee members Paul Dickman -- who also served as study director -- and Jacopo Buongiorno, lead for regulatory issues, will also be on the discussion panel.
