Solar installations nor wind will cause evacuations to save the lives of citizens.
I have every idea that the companies themselves will NOT take the risk even if they could
find an insurance company – a million to one prospect that it wouldn’t happen –
because the private company and the government would want the public to back what is
overwhelming costs: What’s Fukushima cost so far? How about Chernobyl?
No one needs me to supply a reason why using nuclear reactors to boil water for steam is insane.
Everyone is capable of thinking that one out for themselves.
Radiation is good for fish and humans? Don’t think so.
I don’t have to present anything – you’re making the insanities clear.
But I’d also encourage readers to find out for themselves the dangers of nuclear reactors –
Nuclear Power Plants Threaten Drinking Water for 49 Million …
** environmentamerica.org/news/ame/nuclear-power… **
he drinking water for 49 million Americans could be at risk of radioactive contamination from a leak or accident at a local nuclear power plant, according to a new study released today by Environment America Research & Policy Center and the US Public Interest Research Group Education Fund.

On Tuesday, the electric giant that is in charge of the nuclear disaster cleanup said that the levels of possibly cancer-causing radioactive substances in the ground waters at the plant have risen 90 times in just three days. The test results show that cesium-134 levels in the ground water are 150 times the legal level.
**Nuclear Power Plants, Radiation & Drinking Water **
Although some people assert that nuclear power plants pose, at worst, a mostly-manageable threat to our drinking water, many environmental groups strongly disagree. Despite the disagreements, some important facts cannot be disputed. Firstly, nuclear power plants, in spite of disasters like the one in Japan, will continue to be built and operated. Secondly, since the purpose of such plants is to produce boiled water with which to power huge electricity generators, water will continue to be consumed by such plants in huge quantities. Thirdly, a substantial amount of the water thus used will continue to be dangerously contaminated since we do not yet have the capacity to completely control radiation.
The nuclear crisis in Japan is good example of the dangers of nuclear power. A week after the partial meltdown of their nuclear plants, high levels of radionuclides were found in the surrounding water sources. Seawater collected 330 meters from the crippled plants showed levels of iodine-131 were 126 times higher than the maximum limit set by the Japanese government. This radioactive iodine can accumulate in the thyroid and as it decays, it will cause damage to the gland. It is among the family of radionuclides that can cause increased thyroid cancer and disease risk for human beings. It was so bad, that Japan’s health ministry even advised residents in five towns in Fukushima Prefecture to avoid using tap water for making formula milk for babies due to abnormally high radiation levels detected in the water. **
