Hello, my name is Green and I’m a geology major.
Cons: From what I’ve read, the safety concerns of the reactors are legitimate. Mark 1 does have some problems.
Pros: At the very least, when reactors are built near/on fault zones, they are usually built to withstand the earthquakes. However - that can only do so much when there is a problem with the design of the REACTOR itself.
My opinion - we need to work on the reactors themselves - building near a fault is not necessarily a huge problem (I wouldn’t recommend it, but it can be managed if done properly).
SO BASICALLY the country needs to take a look at how they manage funds and put some money used for *ahem* other things
1. Upgrading our nuclear power plants
2. Using geothermal energy (Lol check out the Snake River Valley in Idahoooo)
3. Using more Solar/Wind power.
Put you know this will be a fucking huge fight because there are people who don’t want certain OTHER energy industries to fall.
End science rant/
Great commentary on our original graphic.
