The former chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission now says the risks involved with nuclear power are just too great.
Greg Jaczko headed the NRC during both the Fukushima nuclear accident and the initial shutdown of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.
Jaczko is now co-leading a task force established by Rep. Mike Levin, D-Oceanside, to address safety issues at the San Onofre nuclear power plant related to moving and storing spent nuclear fuel.
Jaczko shares his opinions about nuclear power in a new book, "Confessions of a Rogue Nuclear Regulator."
He joins Midday Edition Monday to discuss the book and his role on the task force.
