Re: What we know about the Fukushima water leaks...

You people seem to forget that I am not the originator of these reports, I simply reference them. If you thing they are wrong, then complain to the actual authors!

Re: What we know about the Fukushima water leaks...

So what is it that bothers you about the reported doses? I have read dozens of articles, including reports from TEPCO that agree on the doses at the hot spots being 1800 mSv/hr. I am pretty sure that exposure to that dose for 4 hrs (as reported) would very likely kill someone. Are you saying that's ...

Re: List of Word nuclear reactors

The list shows 3 reactors under construction in the USA. Which 3 is it referring to? Also, it shows 100 reactors operating. Does that also include Vermont Yankee, which will shut down next year? And, it looks like there are lots of units under construction in China (28), in Russia (10), in India (7)...

Re: Risk Assessment in Light of Radiaiton

What is it with people always trying to muddy-up the waters by making totally inappropriate parallels? So, what are you saying, Kimchin, that events and accidents that already took place do not and should not change our calculations of the likelihood of these "rare" events? Why can't the industry ad...

Re: Fukushima radiation is killing hundreds of whales!

BTW, you should do a bit of research before you post such outrageous claims. It doesn't do much for your credibility, if you keep posting such hoax reports Hey, I didn't write the report! It was published and I simply referenced it. Are you saying I need to verify every published report by myself, ...

Vermont Yankee will shut down

Anone care to comment about Entergy's decision to shut own Vermont Yankee next year? After years of fighting to keep it open and making the state waste all sorts of money, they decided to call it unit? What's up with that?

Re: Risk Assessment in Light of Radiaiton

I read this and many similar studies and it all sounds so good, less than 0.1% that overall risk of death, such a low probability of the accident in the frst place, it sounds great. How about real life and real data points? How does he low calculated probability of the accident jive with what has al...

Re: Fukushima Apocalypse

I put more credence in the author of the report that I do in TEPCO and the Japanese government. They have done nothing but mislead the public, so far. No, I don't know how many fuel rods were damaged and to what extent. But, find one source (as pro-nuclear as you want) that says or has said that fue...

Re: Stop subsidizing nuclear!

I am not so sure I buy the gallop results. But, if you want to believe them, go right ahead. Answer what? There have been dozens of studies that estimate tens of thousands of deaths because of Fukushima and hundreds of thousands because of Chernobyl. Just search on-line. If I could find them, so can...

Re: Stop subsidizing nuclear!

I'd like to see the numbers that support your conclusions! I think that if what you say was true, at least in the USA, people would support Nuclear Power, like they do. Are you serious? USA public supports Nuclear? Whatever it is you are smoking, you should cut down ;-) USA public is against nuclea...
