And nice work lumping all your asians together with the cat and dog meat. I'm pretty sure nobody in Japan eats either.

It's an ugly situation, and there has been a release of radioactive steam, but a full-scale Chernobyl event just isn't in the cards.
At the risk of not summarizing (because it's actually kind of interesting), here is a link to an article that attempts to analyze the reactor situation at Fukushima-I

nuclear power technology is already set back 30 years.

true green energy is the energy that isn't used. but people like to take all they can get their hands on and live like kings.

I'm pretty sure no green energy we develop will be as good as nuclear. Not as efficient, not as cost efficient, not as clean. We can just cover the face of the earth with a wind turbine every 1/8 mile to support our near futures power demands. Why build many fewer of the safest power source we know, nuclear...

By far, this is the most astounding image to me so far-

WTF is that?

I thought the videos of the big houses floating in the flood while on fire were interesting.

Fusion would be the ultimate green energy source.

I thought exactly the same thing, that the worst thing in the end is it will be used as anti-nuclear propaganda.

Looks like it's time for some renewed interest in cold fusion.

I have no problem with nuclear power production... it's the storage of spent fuel that's an issue.

That is a non-issue. You build a missle-like container and drop it into the bottom of the ocean in half mile deep mud. Only tree hugging liberals think this is a bad idea.

I can't wait for a tornado to rip through a windmill farm and kill the **** out of a town so we can watch people start protesting wind power.

windmills killing birds got the epithetical liberals to protest.

the smart thing to do would be to repurpose the spent rods in containers at water treatment plants and install a permanent hot water utility supply pipe in everyone's house so that hot water is now an offsite item. that would be awesome.

or you could put it in the ocean

and then when the teenage mutant ninja sharks came after you...

And how do you get hot water to homes miles away without it cooling?

Nuclear power is win. Best solution we have right now. Fear mongering/uninformed public will continue to kill it.

That **** sucks for Japan. My brother was stationed there, left to come back to the states a couple days before this happened. Glad he missed out on that one. I imagine there are few things scarier than watching the sea just swallow up the land around you.

What? The public has no ******* clue what goes into nuclear regulations, nor do they give a rats *** about it, other than being ignorantly in fear that a meltdown will turn their children into fungus. The "problem" is that nuclear facilities are running on 30 year old technology and no one from FERC has the ***** to make concessions to use newer technology, nor does anyone working in nuclear have the ***** to challenge FERC...Perhaps the 'youtube' generation will be brave enough (god that's a scary thought...) to make the regulatory changes to put us on par with the rest of the world, but for right now we're stuck with the 60 year old consultants who could give two ***** about an automated control system when their mechanical controls have keep the plant from melting down for the time being.
