Isn't it a bit too soon to postulate that radiation leaks don't kill people. (Don't we already have one worker death?... though that could be my error in attempting to parse so much detail in such a short time.)
And isn't there a discog between how the French technocracy deals with problems as compared to shipping nukes to the countries which give us disposable underwear that unravels after the seventh wash?
My point has always been, and remains to be, that in the last two hundred years (or 2,000) there hasn't been one decade without serious social disruption. And we guarantee nuclear security how? for how long?
i'm reminded of my debate with the VP Nuclear for GE, filmed for some film, where i likened him to the guy who jumps out the high rise window, and halfway down, yells, "So far so good."
There will be a hell of a lot of pontificating on all sides over the next weeks, with a very low signal to noise ratio. Methinks we all really should let the rads settle, and events unfold, before we decide what to do.
Though i will say i've watched a few windpower meltdowns in my day, well, they didn't melt, they just sort of spun too quickly, and fell down somewhat twisted. Didn't seem to endanger civilization as a whole.
