So, Greenpeace slams a drone into a nuclear power plant to prove how vulnerable it is. I get it, most of us know that nuclear power is quite dangerous after Chernobyl and Fukushima. I for one would prefer we stop using ours and fire up some coal or natural gas.

Greenpeace France on Tuesday crashed a drone dressed as Superman into the Bugey nuclear energy plant, located about 20 miles east of Lyon, to expose how vulnerable that facility is to a terrorist attack and highlight the broader dangers of this type of power generation.

The activists told AFP that the drone struck "a storage pool for spent nuclear fuel next to a reactor, one of the most radioactive areas at the site."

"This is a highly symbolic action: it shows that spent fuel pools are very accessible, this time from the air, and therefore extremely vulnerable to attack," Yannick Rousselet, head of Greenpeace France's anti-nuclear campaign, said in a statement.

They do realize that crashing a drone into a spent fool rod pool dome, structurally sound or not (cuz we all know how that is) is... dangerous right?

Natural gas is where it's at.

Maybe if they put their energies into exposing how fake the war on terror is, always was, and how that kind of behavior prompts more to want to attack US, then the plants wouldnt face being attacked.

And in the same stroke it'd help deter further conflicts. I mean do they even hustle to raise awareness of environmental effects of Depleted Uranium as the primary metal used in military munitions?

Those people should be in prison.

Greenpeace is nothing but a bunch of self righteous hipsters who continually commit crimes.

I say charge them all under RICO statutes, lock them up and throw away the key.

You do realize that when you dam the rivers up and use that force to generate electricity, all the water still goes downstream?

We are using gravity to generate electricity.

We are not burning water when we do this, or whatever asinine thing you are thinking.

If you want to get technical. we are at the same time making wildlife habitats.

So what are your solutions? Wind and solar, I am assuming....

And the OP should change the title from GreenPeace to Eco-Terrorists, which is what the organization has become.

It happened in France though,

so they'll probably get a medal and an invitational speaking tour of local mosques.

Thanks for reminding me it was foreign loons
Busy replying to 2 or 3 separate folks
So , the French dont secure their nuclear plants ?
Wow , no wonder they consider them dangerous.
Try that in the US and the next thing a person may see is a hellfire missile launched by a Hornet.
Up close and personal.

Brilliant non answer.

No seriously, what you would suggest you replace their output with? You said we should get rid of it, so how?

World wide its 14 % of all power, in other places like Iran, and Europe its more, here in the US its 20 %

What do we replace it with?
