Well, there’s been a lot of lessons learned. Unfortunately, most of the changes are not being implemented. We learned about this huge wave that can knock out the cooling systems of the plant. There’s plants in the United States that have that same problem, but yet we have given those power plants as long as 10 years to make the required fixes. Emergency planning was proven to be a joke, and yet we’ve got Indian Point, which is only 20 miles from New York City, which continues to operate. So while we know the problems, we’re really not getting to the meat of solving them.
SAME GOES FOR SWEDEN.
INSTEAD THE POLITICIANS ARE NOW DISCUSSING TO ADD 10 YEARS OF OPERATING TIME TO REACTORS THAT HAVE ALREADY REACHED THE AGE OF RETIREMENT.
YOU HAVE TO PROTEST TO THE POLITICIAN.
we are beginning to see low levels of radiation in the water. I have told people I wouldn’t mind swimming in the water; I wouldn’t mind walking along the water. But until our government, whether it’s states or national government, tell me what’s in the fish, I remain very concerned about eating the fish that are coming from the Pacific.
