    Nature of media, I suppose.
    The previous "disaster" involved zero deaths.

    The way a Thorium nuclear pebble-bed plant is designed, it cannot meltdown. It will just stop running. I'd prefer that people get a clear head about nuclear and consider Thorium nuclear as a good answer for energy needs. Then again, we might still get stories like, "Thorium nuclear plant functions as designed, news at 11" but at least there would no "valid fear" of impending disaster.

    I heard somewhere that all the nuclear waste ever created by the US would fit into a room smaller than the size of a high school gym.

    I heard that from The History Channels Modern Marvel's episode on nuclear power. I believe it was one of the trivia questions between commercial brakes.

    True.

    So call it event then.


    Same logic applies.

    I think one of the GOP candidates talked about this in the 2008 election. Maybe McCain. I was surprised to hear that though given some of the stories I have heard over the years.
