Lol ours (only got one,only 2 million of us dont need more) is also built on a faultline tough safe from tcunamies.
dunno why they built it there probably the worst spot to put it in slovenija.
Yea looks like it sits in the middle of some fine agricultural land and less than 6 or 7 kilometers from 2 population centers and a large airport. Krsko and Brezice, looks like a lot people live witin 12 kilometers of the plant, not to mention Cerklje airfeild, wich looks military??
I seem to recall some issues that the company that built and operates the plant had in 2007 when another earthquake struck. They would not allow the IAEA to asist in determining the extent of damage that might have occured to the plant. The company (TEPCo?) also built the plant to withstand a max 7.9 magnitude earthquake, while this one was rated as a 8.8-9.0.
*There might have been some other issues with falsification of paperwork supplied to the government about the risk of building on a fault line but I haven't taken the time to look again where I had read the report.

Yeai they do get some compensation for living near a nuclear powerplant, and the closest ones had the opertunity to sell their property at a verry good price
wich looks military??
yea the only military airfield in slovenija
the gratest problem tough is that its built on a faultline, tough the plant is built to withstand erthquakes i think its still a stupid idea to build one in aplace where a massive erthaquake is more probable. Well its only gona run for a decade or 2 we alredy have debates of what to do build a nother nuclear plant or ahidro plant, personaly i think it would be better to build a hydro plant no hazardus waste to dispoze off witch costs money, and i wish the stupid green guys would stick their head out of their ars and listen and let us build windturbines cause they think the wind turbines might kill birds if a bird is dumb enough to run in to a blade of a windturbine it deservesto die < --- evolution seriusly tough i never heard of such bullshit
Finding food, water and shelter are now the most pressing need for the survivors. There was still snow on the ground in parts of the surrounding countryside of Sendai and there are little to no utilities online for millions. No water and no electricity for millions is another disaster, albeit a slow one.
*On a side note, a 60 year old man was found clinging to the roof of his house after two days, about 9 miles out a sea. Thankfully a military vessel spotted him. Hopefully there will be more miracles like his.
Fukushima Reactor Remains Intact After Hydrogen Explosion, Official Says There are some 'religious' commenters out there on the interwebs breaking hearts and showing a general disregard for any human decency with their cruel remarks, over all of this. It behooves us to bring forth and put into action our most prized human possession; our love and the mountains moved because we care.
A nuclear phisisist Paddy Ragan from the Surry university said that the radiation comming from Fukušima has roughly the same efects astaking an x ray. This kind of statment would not calm me down since i had an x ray or 2 done, you get a led shield on theprats ofthe body they dont want to see, and the doctors go out of the x ray chamber and you are only exposed for a few seconds, while the people in the vicinity are exposed 24/7
If a natural or man-made disaster causes another Chernobyl catastrophe, would you then still be a strong supporter?
How many lives lost would it take for you to change your mind? Hundreds? Thousands? Millions?
(I am not "anti-nuclear power", but I am curious with your response, as I think the latest news in Japan SHOULD at least give reflection)
I could not answer that since it is far too vague and open. I don't see Chernobyl as a major catastrophe though.
It would take a very large loss of live to change my mind though, far higher than in any nuclear power scenario I can currently imagine.
Chernobyl was not as much a nuclear power failure as a human failure and we will always see those. We simply need to learn from them, and blaming it on nuclear power is only a sign that we did not really learn the lesson there.
Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!
