Host: On a daily there’s problems at nuclear reactors all around America, is there one in particular  that our viewers should be most concerned about?

Gunter: We are focused on these GE mark 1′s and 2′s…  where thousands of tons of nuclear waste is sitting up in these roof top pools. These are essentially Chernobyl’s waiting to happen. Tens… thousands of times more than what we saw.
