I live a few miles from a plant called Browns Ferry. It's the same model as Fukushima.

Do I live in fear? No.

Has that plant hurt anyone? No.

Does it provide me with super cheap, clean energy? Heck yes.

Also, the plant was nearly hit with an F4 tornado back in April. It scrammed automatically and nobody thought anything of it.

You pro nukers are hilarious Wish i could live with my head in the sand.
You have no idea what you're talking about, the pollution from coal and gas plants has killed many more people than the radiation from a couple of meltdowns. Ignorant people like yourself are what spread fear of Nuclear power and prevent us from building new plants, so we continue to live in the stone age using sources that pollute many times more, and are much more costly and inefficient.

Well. I'm off to Japan for 3 weeks. Anything I should be worried about? Please don't say anything without backing it up with SOURCES. I've been trying to find stuff but have been relatively unsuccessful. Any precautions I should be taking? Will me much appreciated!

Geiger counters, used to detect radioactivity, registered more than 10 sieverts an hour, the highest reading the devices are able to record, Junichi Matsumoto, a general manager at the utility, said today. The measurements were taken at the base of the main ventilation stack for reactors No. 1 and No. 2

Sorry nuclear power doesn't belong here, we cant even run our governments, schools, etc.. fossil/nuclear radiation will be the downfall of humanity if we do not come up with something alot cleaner i understand the problems with coal and others its just as bad but nuclear is not the solution it destroys the land around it for pretty much a long time period? Watch were your throwing that ignorant word around I'm not advocating fossil fuels here either. There is more than enough sunshine and heat for geothermal/tidal or solar power its people like you believing the company line from these industries that nuclear or fossil fuels are the only way!!

What parts I'd be eating lots of kelp or seaweed while i was there, good luck!

guys i have a really cool idea to create electricity.

Let's find some really dangerous radioactive element in the ground and use it to boil water. We could spend millions of dollars to enrich it. Then we put it in a big boiler where it has to be encased with many feet of cement, have water running around it for thousands of years, requires constant monitoring for hundreds of years, and the government can spend billions of dollars to control, regulate, and monitor it. Then when it melts down we can evacuate thousands of people from their homes, families, and lives and lie to the public and say everything is all right. Then when the world realizes what is going on, we can cover it up and say "everything is fine" but you cannot live here for the next 100 years.
