National Journal examines the nuclear industry's vulnerability to terrorism. The report quotes nuclear power's critics who say that "a terrorist attack on the one of the nation's 103 commercial reactors might trigger a meltdown within minutes." However, industry officials call such fears exaggerated. The story predicts that the increasing demand for electricity and the good safety record of the nuclear industry will bring need for new nuclear plants after the immediate threat of terrorist strikes has eased.
