Depends on if the core goes critical. Apparently they are on battery power and can keep swapping them out via chopper.Unfortunately this will put an end to any future hope of nuclear power in the US. :erm:
The whole situation really sucks for the people of Japan.
Nope. The American people are (on average) idiots. The only thing we can hope is that they don't notice.Depends on if the core goes critical. Apparently they are on battery power and can keep swapping them out via chopper.
Yeah, but Three Mile Island was an embarrassing case of human error. The automated systems had the problem under control and would have handled it correctly had the operators not decided the readings / measurements were bogus and manually overrode the system.Not exactly. The Three Mile Island cluster F..k really put the keebosh to nuclear power in the states.
How far away were they from the plant when it blew? Within the 10KM evac zone? Certainly there would be radiation in the massive steam cloud that moved away on the winds. The instructions are to stay indoors and shut off AC units.Not sure how you reconcile that version of events with the detection of caesium, not to mention three randomly chosen residents testing positive to radiation exposure.
They have been monitoring seismic activity since 1884. The first of their responsibilities is "Prevention and mitigation of natural disasters" and they form part of the Disaster Management Emergency Team.:erm: I know I always check with my weatherman when it comes to predicting earthquakes. :scratch:
It's the service that delivered the "earthquake early warning" etc.:erm: I know I always check with my weatherman when it comes to predicting earthquakes. :scratch:
