All I'm saying is we have been doing it since 1955 in the navy with no problems. But we are really good at what we do biggrin.gif

You sir sound like you have been through the pipeline. I went through back in 2001 right after 9/11. Good choice if that is so.

Counties like Britain that get a grand total of 0 natural disasters a year should invest more into nuclear which we are. Currently 25% of our power is made from Nuclear reactors and I live less than 50 miles from one.
Countries like Japan which get a lot of earthquakes and for example America which get a lot of hurricanes shouldn't have nuclear reactors. It's common sense really.
We don't really have a choice. We need the electricity, and burning more coal instead of nuclear plants makes about as much sense as sticking your head in a blender instead of your arm.

What is your geography background? Think the reactor indicated by the red star has ever been hit by a hurricane?

Hate to say it guys, but this is where the media has gotten to the general public (sheep), and made them not aware of the benefits vs dangers of nuclear power. Until you have worked on a reactor and involved with the maintenance, commissioning, etc of one, you don't know what you are talking about. I worked on one for 6 yrs. Received less radiation than a normal person walking the streets does.

Truth of the matter is that the nuclear program exercised by a vast majority of the countries that possess the technology is rather good. Yes, we are pushing the plant lives way past de-com time, but that is due to the immense amount of money that is required to build a new plant. Older designs did not have the contingency built in like the new plants do. The Plant in Japan was a single loop, just a primary. So literally hot rock boil water, boiled water become steam, steam push turbine. This was just a matter of time before failure. All new reactors have at least a secondary containment, if not a third. The more the heat needs to transfer, the more is lost to ambient, so there is a point of diminishing returns.

Do not fear nuclear power, instead read through the nonsense that the media puts out, and do your own research. Do not be the sheep that the media thrive on. Knowledge is your friend

And what I meant about the HydroVolcanic explosion poisoning all of Japan, is because the Fresh Groundwater would be poisoned, which supplys the whol country.
Nuclear Fallout however will not Poison the Entire World in the same way, while In California you ARE able to pick up higher levels of Radiation thatn normal, it was being said that the increase is very minimal and highly dilluted by the time the Radiation hit the coast.
Either way, i am very glad that this did not happens, the explosion itself would have been huge, extremely powerful and after 2 Big Bombs droppped, Id feel terrible if this were to happen.

No worries, cali water is dirtier from it's own doing than anything from Nippon.
No treatment system on storm drains that run straight to the ocean was a brilliant idea.

Yes I have, Nuclear power isn't so bad ppl! I stand next to a nuclear reactor every day and i never even have to think about what bad things are "possible". It is extremely safe when operated and maintained properly.

We should make the Navy Nuc club is something like it. Then break it down even further for sub or surface.

Many years ago whilst at college we had a lecture by the manager responsible for safety at Windscale ( Sellafield ) in the UK

He told us about the expected risk assigned to various activities.

Mostly it was about the nuclear industry, but the other point he raised was that of motorway traffic accidents. He did a calculation of vehicle movements per day, and expected risk of accidents to show that it wasn't worth putting barriers on all bridges due to the low cost of one accident VS all that work.

Then a guy fell asleep driving his Land Rover, whilst towing his car on a trailer. He left the motorway and landed on a rail line, thus de-railing a train, a number of people were killed and the guy was jailed. As a result of one incident, all the bridges were inspected and protection added.

Hundreds of thousands of people are killed per year in traffic accidents, how does that compare to the nuclear industries safety record ?

Just my view, as a supporter of the nuclear industry overall.
