Japan is having some major nuclear problems right now and with radiation from leaked reactors reaching Tokyo, has everyone asking: Could it happen here? At least one prominent billionaire isn’t too concerned. “The closest nuclear plant is Indian Point, and it’s far away from New York City,” said Mayor Bloomberg on Monday.
Yeah, it’s “far away” if you’re walking there, but technically the facility is only 35 miles away, a relatively close distance nuclear meltdown-wise. Then again, if we had a private jet to whisk us away at moment’s notice to undisclosed locations, maybe we wouldn’t be so concerned either.
