Preventing the Next Fukushima
The most obvious way to prevent a similar problem is to put nuclear reactors some place other than the “Ring of Fire.”

A possible greenie objection to safer nuclear reactors
A green skeptic might ask “Why are all these safer nuclear reactors promised for the future? Why hasn't nuclear safety improved in the past?” The answer is that nuclear safety has improved in the past. There were seven incidents rated as five or more on the International Nuclear Event Scale. Three of them were before 1960, even despite the fact that there have been far more nuclear reactors operating since then.
