None of these plants are safe. Ginna ignored a 1980's finding of flood hazard, for decades, willfully and knowingly. Then in their response
to the visual reference a majority of the site staff did not believe
that Deer Creek can flood at levels that would challenge Ginna. This
is compounded by the challenges technical staff experience when they
attempt to calculate how flooding conditions could occur
Because it looked like a nice little river, we just ignored the scientific evidence, and whistled past your graveyard.
because its hard to calculate flooding conditions, we were certain that
by ignoring flood levels set by the authorities having jurisdiction,
and by relying (compounded) by our complacent vision of a nice little
river, that we decided that doing nothing was OK.
NRC said it was not OK and that we were exposed to the same problem at
Fukushima, station blackout, we decided to run some calculations (note
prior sentence, we feel challenged by these calculations) to show that
even though we are harping to the public in a massive pro nuke media
blitz how climate change can be mitigated with more nuclear
power....that we also ignore the effects of climate change in creating
even more extreme weather events in the future. In particular, more
sporadic weather with period of higher moisture in the air, leading to
potentially much larger rains and flooding events than were even
predicted in 1980.
We did all this to avoid having to squeeze
some sealant around cables that had big gaping hole in the drainage
manhole that they were run in for convenience and to save money rather
than giving them their own separate raceway (i.e. don't put the electric
cable in the drainage water manhole and piping system).
all, the only thing at risk was loss of backup power to shut the nuke
plant down, aka Station Blackout like what happened at Fukushima and
caused multiple meltdowns, meltdowns, and explosions including a nuclear
explosion called a Prompt Moderated Criticality. So wasting a few
manhours and some sealant didn't really seem worth it, when we could
spend $78,000 on an engineering study/calculations about the flood level
and fight back against the NRC who is supposed to regulate us.
under further threats we gave in, put some sealant on, and thus proving
we are good safe people with no corporate profit agenda.
ENENEWS keeps providing excellent service to the world!
Nukepro has gone on record as stating we can't just keep commenting at the same sites which are already anti-nuke, we coined a term
Whining to the Choir ---and got it published in the Urban Dictionary.
now "from a distance" points out a little know feature at ENENEWS, a page devoted to posting activism opportunities
Please make a habit of checking this Forum every morning to see if there's something you could be doing –>
Tomorrow is the deadline to comment on what environmental impact you
