We should demand these issues be addressed immediately. let's not wait until we are in crisis. We dodged the bullet in Alabama, and may not be so lucky next time.

i think every nuclear plant should have a windmill there for back up power..the windmills in japan with stood all that storm and kept working...and when there is no problem,it would just be generating a lil more electricity..so win win

There are sources who say Chernobyl killed about a million people around the world since 1986.
Some aspects of this Fukushima disaster, which Brad points out is not over yet, are approaching or surpassing Chernobyl. And it has just begun.
Yet the nuclear energy powers that be don't care.
It is quite serious.

Fukushima Daiichi had the same problem as the BP Spill had in that the Corporations that made the problem were in charge of information to the public.
I worked on solutions for both in the case of Japan flying robotic Radiation sensors to map the air currents and inside the buildings in charting the spread of Radiation. In the Japan event they mixed sea water to cool the pile and created a new fision event CL-38 as the salt mixed with the neutrons and gave off neturon beams as the radiation spread. The plant is 200 yards from the ocean, and thus the cooling water just leached into the ocean and created a need and still does for tracking radiation in the subsea waters and the bilogical migration of sea animals, like Tuna.
In the BP spill the company had evidence of mass amounts of oil in the water collulm but said noting to the public and stopped the USCG from deployment of special SONAR to map it.
What is wrong with this picture? It is the permission of industry to police itself by government against its own interests as a coporation. They are not to blame for this as much as government of the people is for allowing them to do it.
Where we all are acted on by the influence of corporations in a harmfull way, then our government needs to be the watchdog with full power to take control of dangerous situations with out a role for the suppliers of corporate services in energy.
Lets protect our own interests and health at the expense of the corporations who make the bad decesions in the first place.

"Let's protect our own interests and health at the expense of the corporations who make the bad decisions in the first place."
Listen up, you damned socialist gay immigrant sharia sympathizer, you are just the property of our owners and our lords and masters have the campaign contribution receipts to prove it!
So just stay out of their way while they work their magic and create billions of
jobs dollars in profits from their sterling work in the financial, oil, and fission industries!
Are you trying to get the elites go Galt on us? The world won't survive more than a few minutes without their guidance!
Jeez, some people don't know when they've got it good...
This has been your official two-
minute hate for May 14th, 2011.
