The Tragedy in Japan

Why does it take a nuclear meltdown of one of the energy turbines before Europeans begin taking notice of security issues of their sometimes up to thirty year old energy plants?

The tragedy in Japan may instigate a much more thourough analysis in other countries, and that can be beneficial for all - but why do we need a tragedy before we realize just how potentially dangerous nuclear energy CAN be?

For numerous years scientists have debated just how safe nuclear energy actually was, when waste products were treated correctly. It all sounded very good, but after the tragedy in Japan the question come to mind: were we all cheated into slumbering?

Please comment, and let's have a debate about nuclear energy. :-)
