    There is more danger from bee stings....

    Hmm. A lot of people might disagree with that.

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    I'm serious what if you've been lied to by the lame stream media
    What if the radiation exposure by the people in Japan was ridiculous miniscule?
    Would you could you be swayed to start lovin' the wonderful clean endless power of the atom?

    1. The plants were hit with an earthquake larger than had ever been believed they would face. They took it and were fine.
    2. Then the plants were hit by a Tsunami that wiped out that whole section of Japan. They still haven't recovered. The plants took it and were fine.
    3. The plants lost power. They shifted automatically to the secondary, took it, and were fine.
    4. The backup ran beautifully, just as it was supposed to
    5. Then the recovery wasn't able to re-link the plants back to the grid fast enough and that is what caused excess build-up. No "meltdown" event, no massive spewage, the numbers that everyone freaked out were silly. At one point (I was in Japan supporting the recovery effort at the time) everyone started freaking out about the water having certain portions of radioactive material, so I had to do the math - you would have had to drink 15 gallons of the water a day every day for something like two years before it became actually dangerous.

    The Fukushima Daichi plants, contra the easy bumper stickers and the wavetop view of "nuclear, bad thing happened, stuff went bad" are actually a powerful testament to the safety of this energy source.

    They see the US as weak and vulnerable.
    So Assad is turning over all his chemical weapons that he never even admitted having before because the U.S is weak? Good thinking Sherlock.

    Fair enough but that's not saying a serious leak wouldn't be dangerous, like Chernobyl?

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    It all depends on how ecologically active the area is. Georgia really isn't in terms of concerning events. Human activity risk is not location dependent.

    So I say bring the nuke plants. The risk in my area is quite low.

    them krazy rooskies built that plant WITHOUT containment ! But the way they exploded it, even a containment building wouldn't have helped much,
    the graphite burns.
    Chernobyl was a graphite-moderated reactor all of ours are water moderated

    If you study how they actually blew the thing up you'd be amazed.
    Funny thing is they continued to operate this type of reactor to this very day without incident.
    I'm still freaked out that they kept the other reactor at Chernobyl turnin' n burnin' till 2000 !
    So yeah the enviro-wackos don't screw things up in Mother Russia

    yup coal has killed many more people by far
    the facts are crystal clear but we can't build nukes. Well the Chicoms are slappin' em together as fast as they can.

    I guess it couldn't be any more dangerous than dealing with those nuts in the ME!
