    Loving the Regulators now?

    The difference between the Russian nuclear explosion, the Japanese nuclear meltdowns, and Three Mile Island meltdown is levels of regulation. And even though the US meltdown ended OK, the regulations were increased and will continue to be.

    Some regs. like the diesel exhaust go too far too fast and industry can't keep up. Diesel cars were pulled from the market and Navistar still has to pay a fine for each new engine it ships until they find a fix to meet the new regs. I've heard little data was used to set the exact level picked.

      Some new regulations stemming from TMI were training engineers in operations. Perform safety evalutions of modifications, timely update documents impacted by modifications. Limiting access to control room. Fitness for duty. Operating eperience just like in operations of aircraft teaches you important lessons, both to modify hardare and training, to some these are burdens, I think they add to safety.
