Not mentioned in that New Zealand article is the most important aspect of New Zealand when it comes to the biggest doomsday risk out there - EMP/Electro Magnetic Pulse. New Zealand has no nuclear power plants, which means no Fukashima style meltdowns when the water pumps cooling the reactors stop functioning.

https://www.glimp.co.nz/blog/nuclear-energy


According to EMP expert Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, virtually all nuclear power plants rely on diesel backup generators to keep the water coolant running when/if the electric power supply is interrupted to the plant, which is what happens during a major EMP event - the electric power grid will go down for many months or even years.

Nuclear power plants have enough diesel fuel stored onsite to last between 2 and 4 weeks. Without fuel trucks to resupply the diesel (the trucks won't run after an EMP due to fried electrical systems), the power plant will go critical and explode (ala Fukashima) within 2-4 weeks after an EMP event.

The US has approx 100 nuclear power plants, New Zealand and Australia have none.
