Hopefully a Slow Collapse will give us Time
Since Fukushima is back in the news more again and many are screaming about the predicted irradiated water washing up now on the West coast I am hoping maybe some normally sane individuals will take another look at the disaster in waiting these plants are. Or more particularly the left over waste that is still being stored on site is the real danger.
Thanks Again Obummer for deep sixing the deep storage of spent fuel rods.
Why is it that so many level headed people out there are ready to just swallow the koolaid put out about the pro-Nuclear crowd? Any criticism of nuclear energy is immediately followed by comments claiming how safe and redundant the plants are. How nothing can ever go wrong. Or if one does cause a major accident it's always "That was a different type of plant it can't happen here".
Yet no one can deny that if you remove the human factor and there is no one there to take care of the plant it will destroy everything around it for miles and miles.
They just claim.....
That will never happen.
My bet is some Roman Axillary soldier was sitting on Hadrian's wall one day saying the same thing a few thousand years ago.
It can happen and unless we get up in arms about it it probably will someday. Just how long do you think these plants are going to keep pumping water and buying diesel fuel for their generators after a financial collapse? How many of those employees are going to just live on site and continue operations when they are not being paid?
My hope is that all though this long slow collapse is worse on us as individuals just maybe collectively this far reaching problem may get some focus.
In my opinion the technology is not complete unless it also includes the permanent and safe disposal of the by products.
I hope I am not the only one who feels that way.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
