There is nothing to fear from nuclear energy. That's the assessment of the president of the Weizmann Institute of Science.

Comparing the disasters in Japan, Prof. Daniel Zajfman said we're focusing on the wrong tragedy. Some 20,000 people perished in the tsunami. A train was swept away and hundreds died. But at the nuclear power plant meltdown, not one person died.
