I don't know but I'm sure it has the word "Surrender" in it somewhere.

I'm pretty sure that, as a firefighter, "the nuclear reactor is on fire, let's go" is the last thing I'd ever want to hear.

O! Mon dieu! Le réacteur nucléaire brûle.

OMG ==> OMD en francais

You know, if neither the people who gave us the Honda Civic nor the people who gave us the TGV can get nuclear power right, maybe it's time we just accept that we're stuck with coal and natural gas.
 
2012-04-05 12:04:55 PM
Sounds like not a huge deal, if the article is accurate.
 
2012-04-05 12:06:49 PM
idk, but the response is, "Which one?" They have many, many nuclear reactors.

Used to want to travel to Paris/France. Not so sure since learning that (a while back).

Wind and Solar is almost there. Better conservation efforts would get us there. Tesla cars + at home power generation via wind and solar = the way forward.

Well, I like the thermal solar concept with molten salt storage as a battery of sorts.

I also dream of Solar PV spread across warehouse, big box store, and mall roofs. Anything with a large surface area.

Individual homes... not so much (although I love the mini wind turbines I saw recently.)

You're a little bit behind where the technology "will" be soon enough. You won't need large surface areas, and "mini turbines" have been around for a while now. They just need to become more efficient in the electronics. The nature of the available energy doesn't change.

/also, moore's law will help.

I know the small scale turbines have been around a while, and I'm waiting for the solar tech to come down again. I have to redo my roof anyways in another 2-3 years, if I'm going to go solar, I'd do it then.

I'm also interested in capturing waste heat from our industrial processes and seeing if it can't be harnessed.

If you people READ THE ARTICLE you'd realize the fire was not the reactor. This was an OIL FIRE associated with pump oil. They had an oil leak and it caught fire, somewhere in the Aux building by the sound of it.

/reactors are not especially flammable

Done in one.

Doux Seigneur! La pile atomique est en feu!

I'm just guessing.

I've never had to say that.

I have absolutely no secret nuclear reactor projects hidden under the Canadian Shield.

I didn't do it, nobody saw me do it, you can't prove anything.

This is WB cartoon grade bad French!

Excellent!

"anything" that interferes with normal (ie: perfect) operating conditions for a nuclear reactor is a potential issue. There is no "off" really.

/no "safe" really, either.
 
2012-04-05 12:28:07 PM
I'm sure it's perfectly safe and there is nothing to worry about.

What Ringshadow doesn't mention is that he previously worked for the Japanese nuclear authority. Before that, he was in public relations for Saddam Hussein...

Yeah but "OMG! FIRE AT THE NUCLEAR PLANT!" gets better ratings/more hits.

Coal power has killed way more people in the first world than nuclear power ever will. Not just mining accidents but also asthma, mercury poisoning, etc.

This reminds me of a field trip to the coal-fired power plant near my hometown about 12-13 years ago. If memory serves, waste hot water from the turbines was used for a nearby corrugated cardboard factory.

Yeah, I'd probably have a lot more money if that was the case. That being said, I'm a Radiation Protection contractor, not a member of a regulatory organization.

Zafler: Erm, Ringshadow is a she.
