wake-up call about nuclear safety after a fatal explosion in france. >> this time a worker is killed at a plant that burns nuclear waste. and after the japanese disaster, just six months ago, critics are demanding action. it is tuesday, september 13th.
3:31 am
good morning, everybody, i'm rob nelson. >> i'm tanya rivero. critics are quick to point out this morning little has been done to improve nuclear safety worldwide since the fukushima meltdown. now that's why this accident in france at a nuclear waste plant might lead to some safety changes. >> really hard to believe after all the frightening days we spent watching that plant very little has been done there or in our own country. >> we know from the recent blackouts in california, it's not just natural disasters we have to worry about. manmade, as well. >> scary. in this half-hour, the republicans running for president had another chance last night to set themselves apart during a tea party debate. you will see how rick perry, now of course still the front-runner had to defend himself yet again. everybody swinging at rick. >> the gloves are off now. it's getting down and dirty. and later this half-hour, watson, the super computer, after winning at "jeopardy," he gets a job.

radiation is our worst nightmare occurring again. there are no signs of irradiation leak and the fire walls quickly contained. still the scare proves that six months after the disaster at fukushima, the tension over nuclear power remains high. fukushima is spewing radiation, 12 mile zone around the plant is a wasteland, and 80,000 people still displaced. it could take years if not decades before they can return. most of japan's nuclear reactors remain shut down just in case. but in france, 75% of the country's electricity still comes from nuclear power. in the united states, fukushima was seen as a wake-up call. still, six months later, there have been no substantial safety changes made at the 104 nuclear reactors that dot the country. where is the beef?
3:34 am
where are the actual upgrades being done? and the answer is so far, nothing has been done. >> reporter: the exact cause of the explosion here in france is still unknown, but a french government scientist just told us with every incident like this with every close call there are lessons to be learned and improvements to be made. nick watt, abc news. improvements to be made. apparently they're not being made. >> not at all. in june, president sarkozy in france wants to invest $1 billion in new nuclear reactors, that just came a few months after the tragedy in japan. >e didn't publicly respond to the tragedy in japan at all. >> scary, environmentalists have a pretty loud voice out there in france, at least a pretty active voice. >> gives more fuel to their argument for sure. >> you would think. in other news this morning, al qaeda's new leader issued a message to coincide with the 9/11 anniversary. the 62-minute interview is titled "the dawn of imminent
