Times Square Radiation Check

A Greenpeace activist dressed in a hazardous materials suit takes radiation readings in New York's Time Square. Greenpeace is highlighting the threat to 17 million people living within 50 miles of Indian Point, an old nuclear plant in an active seismic zone just north of New York City. If an accident or terrorist attack led to a catastrophic release of radiation, evacuation would be impossible. Nationwide, 1 in 3 Americans live within 50 miles of a nuclear plant.
