It will give you an orange afro and suck the paint off your house.

I think the real question is....who's going to be the safety inspector in sector 7 G?

Mother nature does whatever she wants without warning.
Sometimes in a very unpredictable fashion.
Japan seriously underestimated what the earth can do.
An epicenter under a nuke plant would make any architect look like an amateur.
Look at the usgs earthquake tracker that fault is the west pacific equivalent of the San Andreas fault in California. The fukushima plant was rated for an 8.8(I believe) vs the 9.0 that occurred. Japan is not the us they cant choose to put nuclear power plants in low risk zones.

Here is the probability map. Be interested to know which part of Japan matches the mid Atlantic region for seismic peace.

Re: US To Build 2 Nuclear Reactors: First in 30 yrs

Now that the lawsuits have started to be filed in court how many years will it take to break ground?
My guess is 6 yrs.

Maybe so but at the same time all the lawsuits are asking is they wait to start building until safety changes made last year after the Japan disaster get approved. I don't think it will take 6 years to get those safety changes approved.
