Quotes

"We take seriously and review any claims of deviation from operating procedures," said Jennifer Koenig, vice president of corporate communications. "While we believe many of the claims made in this interview are not feasible due to numerous monitoring systems and procedures, our contractual arrangements with customers and regulatory oversight, we are nonetheless undertaking our own investigation of the allegations. "
The University of Manchester's School of Earth, Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences professor Jonathan Lloyd said: "Nuclear waste will remain buried deep underground for many thousands of years so there is plenty of time for the bacteria to become adapted."
"The decisions made today will impact us forever," said Roote, adding the seriousness of it is "without precedent in the history of our community, or the country for that matter."
"The completion of the new protective case for the sarcophagus is essential to safely enclose the stricken reactor and to allow for its removal" German Environment Minister Barbara Hendricks was quoted as saying by DPA
