All it TAKES is a QUAKE...
Take a few Nuclear Reactors, SHAKEN, not stirred, with NO PLAN whatsoever concerning what to do in the event of catastrophic Power Failure...
No plans whatsoever concerning what to do with highly radioactive Nuclear Waste...
Add a dash of ARROGANCE and a pinch of Good Luck, and you have today's Nuclear Meal.
All to have supposedly CHEAP electricity and also to boast about just how intelligent we all are.
The Nuclear Power Industry is extremely proud to state that their reactors CREATE more energy than it takes to operate them.
And it has KILLED more people than it has EMPLOYED to run it's various machinations...
Think about it. The Nuclear Industry is DIRECTLY responsible for at least 2 million Human Deaths worldwide, NOT counting Japan...
There were TWO Nuclear Accidents in America long before Three Mile Island:
A Test Reactor exploded in Idaho Falls in 1961, and there was a partial Meltdown in Michigan in 1966.
IDAHO bears the distinction dubious of having more Nuclear Reactors than anywhere else in the world-over FIFTY!
Here is a partial list of LOCATIONS in the U.S. alone that have Nuclear Reactors:
Lawrence Livermore Labs, Berkeley, Ca.
Rocky Flats Environmental Tech Site, Colorado
Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant, Kentucky
Los Alamos National Lab, New Mexico
SOUTH CAROLINA has two
PACIFIC PROVING GROUND used for above ground and below ground testing
The WATTS BAR Nuclear Generating Station in Tennessee has just opened fully for business. It had been under construction since 1973!
There are 104 Nuclear Facilities in the United States. There should have been well over 1,000 by the year 2000, but Three Mile Island derailed THAT plan......
