  1. Fukushima proved that Nature can destroy any land based nuclear reactor, any place anytime 24/7, yet regulators and Governments continue to gamble with our future, probably due to what I call, Nuclear Payback*.

    Those that support nuclear power because nuclear power somehow supports them; no matter what the health implications or other "costs" are for others.
