OLLI HEINONEN

Olli Heinonen is a senior fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University. Before that he spent 27 years with the International Atomic Energy Agency, the last five as deputy director general. He thinks that regardless of all the great efforts, we still have a potential catastrophe on our hands.

"When such a thing happens, it's a national catastrophe for Japan, but it's also a catastrophe for every citizen of the world the radiation doesn't recognize borders," Heinonen said. "We should stop here and think whether we should have an international safety and security inspectorate. More work needs to be done to insure that nuclear energy is used properly."
