How far is ‘safe’ when it comes to nukes? by Chuck Baclagon

I believe that one reason why the powers that be in the government and the energy sector are all keen on pushing for the revival the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant is partly because of the fact that we all have come to believe that Bataan is too far off from Manila, for it to affect us in the event of a nuclear accident.
