finally. now just lay the pipeline and maybe eventually we'll find a way to energy independence and stop paying money to people who hate us.

Yes, about time. So long as it isn't in my backyard I'm cool with it.

We have one within 50 miles but don't ever give it any thought. I don't think I would care if one was within a few miles as long as I don't have to look at it.

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

I'm still on the fence with this.
I desperately want to get off of fossil fuels but Fukushima scared the crap outa me.
And now that we have had recent quakes in Washington DC and northern Illinois I'm not sure there is a safe place for them anywhere.
I already have a couple near my backyard and dont really want any more.

How close is your home to a nuclear plant?

It was not the earthquake that caused the problem at Fukushima. It was the flooding of the pump stations that cause the problem.

Earthquake > tsunami > flooding.

Shaking a nuke plant is a bad thing.
It will give you an orange afro and suck the paint off your house.

I love when firtdown argues with himself on here to throw cover that he is really not both Alvin Walton and firstdown.

Bravo, well played.

Fukushima was a major earthquake (beyond anything predicted for that area which is a hotbed of earthquake activity) incomparable to anything that would feasibly hit the mid-atlantic coast region, followed by a massive tsunami. Had it only been the earthquake, or tsunami, the plant's systems would not likely have failed. It is akin to fearing flying in airplanes because a single crash is usually spectacular, but hundreds of thousands of flights safely occur every year.

France has an incredible amount of stable nuclear reactors, with good regulations, we could do so much more but instead let activists misinform/frighten the general public with the exceptions.

I dont see how an aircraft in flight is comparable to a seismic event.

Activists didnt create the damage in Japan that any Joe can watch on YouTube. Thats just brutal reality

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.

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

This is a really good thing; Hopefully more to come. On the heels of the Fukushima incident, our engineers should have sufficient insight into building safer reactors. Maybe two new reactors every 8 years through 2020?

Well if your on the aircraft crashing I think it would compare just fine.
