Re: mushroom jellyfish cloud?
. . . nuclear powerplants are ALSO susceptible to . . . jellyfish?

Well, they can be a bit of a bitch:

I can see how something like the above pic could clog water pipes.

Re: mushroom jellyfish cloud?
but why not a small power plant generating power for just one small town?

Yes, . . . except for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, . . . I suppose so.

How/Why would they stop you?

But since my tax money is already funding expensive and unsafe power sources, why not simply use that money for cheaper and safer energy resources?

You're asking the wrong guy, I'm not in charge of making those decisions.
