     Chernobyl was a disaster.  Bad reactor design  and a reactor being run 
by some poorly trained technician.  Ouch.
     Fukushima was a poorly designed facility  placed in fairly serious 
earthquake/tsunami country.  Ouch.
     Hope we learn from our mistakes --- TMI was almost  a non-event --- 
pretty good reactor design.
     In 50 years the coal, oil, natural gas etc. may be  gone.  Hope solar, 
fission, fusion???, ethanol, methane etc. are still  around.  People 
getting cold in Winter will be begging to have a fission  reactor 10 miles from 
their home.  If they want solar panels on their roof,  so be it.

It was  the exposure to large amounts of Imaginarium from Fukushima!   Duh!

pro nuclear spin

Why are there large numbers of  deformed babies here and there was no such 
occurrence after Hiroshima and  Nagasaki?
