  •  Another day, another nuclear accident... (9+ / 0-)

    This is a phrase I made up after seeing almost daily reports like these:

    [TODAY, 4/3/13 -- from a report by the NRC as repeated on enenews]

    >>"Four U.S. nuclear plant workers injured by flash — Explosion reported — Helicopter transport required

    April 3, 2013:  At 1707 CDT on 4/2/13 an arc flash occurred at the ‘B’ safeguards transformer (XMDV24) in the plant switchyard at Callaway [nuclear plant in Missouri]. At the time of the flash, ground straps were being placed on the ‘B’ safeguards transformer which had been removed from service for maintenance. The event resulted in a loss of power to areas/buildings outside the power block. There was no impact to equipment and systems in the plant. Four workers were injured or affected by the flash. The extent of the electrical-related injuries has not been determined. However, based on reports from the scene, all of the workers were conscious and walked away from the scene. One person was transported by helicopter and two by ambulance to a local hospital. [...]"<<

    At the site 'enenews dot com' which Joieau mentioned above.  Playing with nuclear energy while having the uneveolved, profits first, get it on the market fast mentality of a capitalistic system is exceedingly dangerous.

    There is no such thing as a safe level of nuclear exposure.  It's cumulative.  Read John Gofman, PhD & M.D, Helen Caldicot,MD, DR. Rosalie Bertells...and many more. Check out a book called "Nuclear Witnesses."

    Thanks, Joieau for continuing to try to counteract all the 'Don't worry, Be Happy.' propaganda of the nuclear proponenets.
