OT we discussed this before:All French Nuclear Reactors Deemed Unsafe

From: Rod-Lists

I thought few of you would want to see it.

"A new study by a French government agency, commissioned in the wake of the Fukushima disaster, found that all French nuclear power plants do not offer adequate safety when it comes to flooding, earthquakes, power outages, failure of the cooling systems and operational management of accidents. While there is no need for immediate shutdown, the agency presses for the problems to be fixed quickly. France gets about 80% of its power from nuclear energy and is a major exporter of nuclear technology."

=============================================================== From: Cameron Kilgore ------------------------------------------------------ I find it very very sad that it only takes a huge high-scale INES disaster to get the nuclear power industry off its ass to audit their facilities and make them safer. I think a similar audit in the US would be very damning.

I hear that the backpower time on some of our reactors is less than Fukishima. ----- Original Message ----- From: Cameron Kilgore To: CHUGALUG Sent: Fri, 18 Nov 2011 11:54:54 -0500 (EST) Subject: Re: [Chugalug] OT we discussed this before:All French Nuclear Reactors Deemed Unsafe I find it very very sad that it only takes a huge high-scale INES disaster to get the nuclear power industry off its ass to audit their facilities and make them safer.
