After seeing the progression of lies that were told about the extent of the Fukushima disaster until it was literally impossible to conceal the truth, I have less than zero faith in official accounts or reassurances. One of the worst aspects of TMI and its nearby neighbor Peach Bottom is that a catastrophic failure would travel straight down the Susquehanna and devastate the Chesapeake Bay.I think the consensus is that nuclear power in its current state just isn't worth the risk.
    You live in a radioactive world.

    And will your whole life.

    TMI gave you 1/10,000 th your yearly dose if you stood on the TMI fence during the "accident".

    Fuku is much worse yes because ACTUAL non-noble gas products got out. At TMI, this is al l that got out.

    here, read this, I am not responsible if you panic and die.........LMAO.

    No they are different reactor designs.

    you will note the failed back up generator locations as one difference from Japan to USA.

    Also the Fuku site was a tall cliff to start with. Immune to waves. They cut it down to sea level to make construciton easyer.........

    They should build all future nuclear reactors under water parks. That way, if the pumps shut down we can just pull the plug out of the wave pool and let it take care of everything. Man, I'm brilliant sometimes.

    I can see water park attendance dropping dramatically, if we follow your plan.



    Because, like it or not, people are kinda afraid of nuclear power plants. Whether it’s actually worth being afraid of or not.


    Build a massive nuclear power station in the middle of a desert (like, somewhere in the Midwest?) and upgrade our entire power grid so that the power can be transmitted with less loss.

    I mean, few people like living in a desert, so there’s that problem gone. And you’re less likely to get tsunamis there…

    ..and if the reactor blows up in the desert, we get a free funky giant blown glass art piece. Could work if you can find someone willing to live in the middle of the desert to run it other than those granola people living in kit houses because they tend to be anti-nuke and don't seem to have much of a work ethic not centered around art and pot.

    You couldn't really put all the houses, schools, and shops within a 1 mile radius of a nuclear power plant.

    They'll leave when we build the plant then, probably.

    Re: Three Mile Island nuclear reactor shuts down unexpectedly.

    The funny thing is somebody on this board on another thread, and I forget who, actually advocated for nuclear power as part of the green energy industrialization of America. I am pretty sure there are no more diametrically opposed ideas than that. I really do not have a problem with it as long as we site select to minimize Mother Nature throwing whammies at our plants as much as possible.

    Nuclear energy is currently the cleanest, safest form of highly aggregative energy production we have.
