Your spelling and grammar make me feel like I've been irradiated.
@LookOutASni, i thought the meme was the bad spelling for a minute there
@LookOutASni, it really made me sad with each passing second
Chernobyl ONLY happened because the soviets were embezzling so much money and cutting so many safety corners so that everything is cheaper that it led to them making the power plant with incorrect parts because these other materials were cheaper.
@Z0IDBERG, are you saying that wouldn't happen again? Cause that sounds like it should have happened again, by now
@Z0IDBERG, what about them putting people in charge who had no business running a power plant let alone a nuclear one?
@Z0IDBERG, we've had decades of nuclear plants running and failing safely and only have a single real catastrophic case
@Darth Panserbjorne, true because even though there are multiple reactors around the world only 28 incidents since 1957 and of those only 10 have had an INES rating over 3. Compare that to coal mine accidents, oil rig accidents, shipping accidents (Exon Valdez) and the like
@The Xenocide, not to mention how much damage "safe" operation of fossil fuel plants do
@Darth Panserbjorne, technically 3, INES rated incidents have been 6 or higher. One each of natural disaster, accident, gross and negligent incompetence
@The Xenocide, thank you for the reference to the ines rating, though i am sad to see three mile island at level 5 given that there are no casualties expected as a result
@Darth Panserbjorne, determining casualties from large area of effect events is difficult to accurately determine and could potentially get into a splitting hairs/nitpick area of justification. “Have you or a loved one suffered from mesothelioma? Call now”
To be clear not down playing those that have gotten sick from those events or other disasters but truly proving it can be difficult for those outside the initial site.
@The Xenocide, wait, is that why that mesothelioma commercial comes on?
@The Xenocide, acording to readings the area had an increase in radiation exposure that is comperable to getting an xray every 6 years. Thats not really hard to analyze
@Z0IDBERG, not exactly, that was just me making a reference to part of the problem. Ambulance chasers jump on the fast cash wagon and it’s faster and cheaper to just pay people and tell them to be quite that it is to fight it out and prove that you got cancer from being an idiot as a teenager and thinking fluorescent lightbulbs were lightsabers during your backyard wrestling tournament until your dog got sick because it ate some glass you didn’t clean up and not the factory that emitted 0.0001% fumes from 25 miles away. But since they were already paying out to their employees and actual people affected by the incident that caused a noticeable health crisis a lawyer gets a free ride to money town and the company shrugs it off.
That spelling radiation gave me cancer
Still less deaths per kwh than literally any other form of energy
What the f*ck is a nucleaire?
@Ghoaxst, French, thanks Google translate
I fully support the intent of this meme, but hesitate because of the clear lack of intellect of the writer.
@TheLongConn22, ha! See @Ghoaxst for why you’re simultaneously right and wrong.
Fml that speling
The issue is more about what to do with the waste. It’s a lot more immediately obvious than fossil fuel waste and you have to actually put it somewhere instead of releasing it into the atmosphere and shrugging.
@Ewok612, there's really not very much of it though, a lot of reactors store all the waste they've ever produced onsite
@Ewok612, there is also technology to use the waste for a different type of reactor so you can get additional use and lower waste
The bigger problem is the cost of construction and disposal for all of the waste. Luckily humans have made great strides in the fields of fusion energy recently so that should eliminate the disposal costs.
3 mile island. Talk to those people. Easy to speculate, hard to appreciate.
@MeatStick, the people around 3 mile island were exposed to about as much radiation as a chest X-ray.
@Hotchkiz, that is direct ionization. Biodosimetry is actually looking at the impacts of ingested exposure. Here, check it out, please.
@MeatStick, three mile island was also an early example and an example of manufacturers failing to assess risk. The valve that got stuck preventing the water from cooling the fuel had gotten stuck at one or two other reactors before and had been caught by the on site staff but the manufacturer didnt share that information with any of the other locations. There also wasnt a sensor to tell if the valve itsself was actually opened or closed. Just a sensor to tell if the valve was given the signal to open or close by the operator.
Three mile island is a bad example of why America shouldnt be on Nuclear, but at least its infinitely better exampl than the typical "but chernobyl??" argument
@Guy Fawkes, appreciated, even if it is the best option, I just say look at mistakes in the past and take those things into account for the best interest in the welfare of those who reside in a close proximity. I should be clear I don't disagree that's it's an option to be reconsidered.
