Aha! see,  here at last is the rationale for my seriously absurd 
opinions -- I knew it had to be buried in there somewhere. Whee!!! A 400 
ft tsunami -- what a sight that would be
Happy coming New Year to all anyway,

Some other "possibilities" that have actually received serious consideration in siting studies include, falling airplanes, meteor impact, and people actually spending their entire life living at the site boundry at the center of any and all downwind release trajectories. My favorite occured at the siting hearings for the San Onofre Power Plant. According to one witness, his seismic analysis indicated that the plant could  be hit by a 400 foot high Tsunami. Such an occurence would make the Fukushima event seem trivial in comparison. Of course, in such an event, everyone living between Los Angelas and the Mexican border would likely drown to death, buy the really serious consequence might be the release of some I-131, deadly Plutonium, and maybe even the terrible Depleted Uranium. Everybody is entitled to their opinion, no matter how absurd, but what law says that it must be taken seriously.
