That's a cute collection of buildings that have never once been utilized in any sort of nuclear capacity.

But keep posting.

Last week the government was mounting a PR campaign to activate it, this week it may not even be there any more. It would follow the usual nuclear disaster blueprint: built by a dictator in a terrible location at great public cost, rejected during a period of temporary democracy and pursued again once corruption in Aquino's government reached sufficient levels.

Although those buildings may be the only ones still standing in that area now...as long as the volcano it's built on didn't erupt overnight. Nuclear power in southeast asia, whose population outnumbers the rest of the world combined, is asking for megadeaths.

Radiation exposure isn't even that bad. Most of the population is so confused by movies and fiction that they think they will grow another head if they are exposed to a little extra radiation. Its ridiculous.

By your own admission, 40+ year old buildings still standing after taking a direct hit from the worst storm ever in recorded history.

Sounds like a testament to how durable the half-century old technology actually is.

Maybe you should calm down?

Fukushima proved that the buildings need not be destroyed for catastrophe to occur; a lack of backup generators due to flooding is sufficient.

Raleigh power plant has been actively pumping 61 million gallons of unfiltered toxic waste into the Cape Fear river for over seven months. Regulators were unaware and apparently oblivious, since this was completely out in the open with bright red equipment.

Don't worry. Everything is A-OK.

Same company, 10 miles away from the nuke plant. If we can't trust them to keep water in a dirt pond, how can we trust them(or state/federal regulators) to manage something really dangerous.

It seems clear that after these aerial photos were given to the NCDENR, they immediately tipped off Duke Energy so they could remove the pumps ahead of the inspectors' arrival. These are criminal actions and are now being treated accordingly.

Quote :
"the ferry disaster and the reactor's lifespan extension had some in common, saying that the government' s insistence on "the safety of our nuclear reactors" was equivalent to orders made by the ferry sailors to passengers to " stay where they were."

As a bureaucratic Mafia, or the collusive links between bureaucrats and businessmen which President Park vowed to sever, was one of the main causes of the ferry accident, the nuclear Mafia caused corruption and illegalities in the nuclear industry, delivering faulty parts used in nuclear reactors and fabricating certificates for the parts.

As public interests on safety picked up following the ferry disaster, all the candidates running for the Busan mayor offered the closure of the Gori-1 reactor as one of their key campaign pledges."

Three years later, and no work has yet been done to remove fuel from the damaged Fukushima reactors. All available manpower is being used in failed attempts to prevent further groundwater contamination. Workers are reaching exposure limits faster than new ones can be trained. Site cleanup is now projected to cost $100 billion and take 40 years.

Meanwhile, 30 years after Chernobyl, money has run out for The New Safe Confinement barn that is being built. Instead of being finished this year as planned, best case estimates are an additional 5 years, assuming western nations continue giving money to Russia/Ukraine, which isn't likely to happen. Only then can work on dismantling the reactor commence.

Wait, you're going to bitch and moan about an expensive, aging power plant being kept online, when it's fucking morons like YOU that refuse to allow any new plants to be built to replace them, much less ones that are safer and more efficient? Shut the fuck up.

Natural gas is the way of the future. It's so cheap that energy companies are practically begging to shut down their nuke plants. The only thing keeping nuclear alive in this country is the massive expense involved in shutting them down and cleaning up the sites. All it will take now is for regulators to actually man up and start refusing rate hikes solely to keep unprofitable nuclear plants running.

Sure you'll talk about today, but you'll conveniently ignore the previous 20 years of energy history, where companies wanted to replace plants, but morons like you wouldn't let them.
