    we have not built a pant in how long? what setback could be any worse than that?

    and for the record this means that we can add safety features that may abrogate a cataclysmic events that we see unfolding, not that the greens care....there is no energy industry they would allow, if it went back to horsepower Peta would close that 'loophole' to.

    ugh, this freaking map again. I said before, the Rad is an obsolete method of measure for radiation, they use Rem and sieverts now.

    Also you wouldnt make a map of rem/sievert anyway, you would make a map of curies, as this is the actual radioactivity of such a cloud. rem/sievert is a measure of exposure to a human body, and has more variables such as location, and if you are inside/outside.

    Also the map doesnt even try to tell you the parameters of the source release or the model used for dispersion.

    The map is a hoax, made up by someone with graphical skills, and zero knowledge of air modeling, or nuclear particle physics.

    Agreed--the greens agenda would have us do without enough energy to survive. They use the energy they despise while demonizing it. Develoo all the alternative energy that you wish but don't kill what you will need to get that far.

    Jesus, the tree hungers are all over this, not surprising. How does a crisis at a reactor differ from a crisis at a coal fired plant, be careful now.

    This is JUST news boys, and girls, nothing more, and if you let your emotions run away with themselves, well, your just adding to the panic, and NOT solving anything .

    I'll grant you this might convince me we in America shouldn't build a nuclear plant someplace generally considered part of the Ring of Fire...

    If the coal plant ten miles from me explodes, no big deal. If the Calaway plant 100 miles west of me goes I worry about radiation and my kid's health.

    Not that I am saying abandon nuclear power. Just gotta figure use this as a learning experience to make the ones we have and the ones we may someday build better.

    Oh, BTW, everyone who is for building more nuclear power plants sign a petition. It is going 10 miles from one of your homes!
