Containments that don't contain/Arne Gunderson
Edited on Fri May-27-11 01:43 PM by robdogbucky
The Implications of the Fukushima Accident on the World's Operating Reactors

Watch this 10:29 minute video by Arne Gunderson if you want to stay informed It is the third video down on the page:

http://www.fairewinds.com/updates

"Arnie Gundersen explains how containment vents were added to the GE Mark 1 BWR as a "band aid" 20 years after the plants built in order to prevent an explosion of the notoriously weak Mark 1 containment system. Obviously the containment vent band aid fix did not work since all three units have lost containment integrity and are leaking radioactivity. Gundersen also discusses seismic design flaws, inadequate evacuation planning, and the taxpayer supported nuclear industry liability fund."


And we, as taxpayers, are on the hook for $190 Billion if Price-Anderson is used to cover utilities when one of their disasters occur.


Oh, man, can someone get me a witness?



Just my dos centavos
