    I’m not sure what this is about, but it’s very well drawn and has great composition.

    I can understand the sentiment in the cartoon but they have to turn the reactors back on as they simply don’t have the enough non nuclear electrical production.

    Why they would put the spent fuel rods in the same building, ON AN UPPER FLOOR, is beyond me. The pool is teetering and if it falls all those rods will go up in smoke. The sky shine will be beautiful to behold. Probably saved a few yen. That’s what corporations do. Trust them folks and don’t forget to vote for their stooges in congress and Lord Richy Rich this Nov. They have our best interest at heart. Right!

    The fuel rods themselves are not capable of exploding; however, overheating of the coolant vessel in an out of control situation (rod meltdown) can cause a catastrophic steam explosion. In some designs, hydrogen can become a problem and that stuff is definitely explosive if oxygen is present. Hydrogen is believed to be what caused the Fukushima explosion. Chernobyl is still the worst accident as far as nuclear material released to atmosphere and size of exclusion zone.

    I know that the leadership had underplayed it at one time, but I thought that they had finally come clean. If they haven’t, they are certainly doing the Japanese people a disservice.

    I think the people of Japan should sue GE for building bad reactors.
