I think people are hoping this isn't gonna turn out as bad as it sounds.
Multiple meltdowns at once is a pretty big deal, especially considering how rare such events actually are.
Even considering this catastrophe, and the potential fallout scenarios, nuclear power plants are still far safer and cleaner than coal or oil power,
in my opinion. However I think you could make the argument that natural gas is better than all 3 of those alternatives.
But we have to look at this realistically. Nuclear power is dangerous. Coal power requires massive mines and puts countless miners at risk every day
(and many die as a result). Oil as we all know, is highly provocative in geopolitical aspects (wars for oil etc). Natural gas is not so safe either,
because there are multiple explosions of large size, and there have even been natural gas deposits which have blown up on massive scales and created
small earthquakes etc.
All of these are costly and dangerous forms of power generation, but all things considered, nuclear power is still one of our better alternatives
despite the disaster unfolding before us right now.
The potential scenarios that could develop in relation to nuclear fallout in the US/Canada zone is a dangerous situation but make no mistake about it,
we can handle it and mitigate those damages by taking various precautions and dealing with the situation in a straight-forward, calm, and concise
Even if the fallout cloud never materializes and we avoid the bullet here, we still need to create a disaster plan for our families and friends, and
now is a good time to break out the old 1950s handbooks on this contingency.
This morning I started a thread in which I will continue at some point tonight to add additional information to, and I would be grateful if people
take this link Fallout Prep Guide
, make physical copies of it, and pass it out to people you know in real
life. No matter where you are, we all need a fallout preparation plan. There are power plants everywhere these days, and there are also earthquakes
everywhere as well. It's only prudence.
Here is the thread
I created this morning using that guide as a template. Please
spread this information.
Let people know there is nothing to fear except ignorance and panic. We need to stay rational and logical. We need to confront these dangers with a
plan, that is our only real hope for overcoming the ills that have befallen us and that will befall us in the future with certainty.
Knowledge is a shield. Use it to protect yourself and your family. Nuclear fallout is no where near as bad as it is made out to be in the media. We
can survive it, and we can avoid the dangers posed by it. The levels of radioactivity fall sharply within a few days time, and it constantly degrades
in potency. All we have to do is activate our disaster plans, and alter them slightly to handle this scenario.
If you do not have a disaster plan, review the guide linked and begin to formulate your own now. If you are safe right now, that is the perfect
opportunity to begin formulating things. Those in danger areas need to get on the ball and get their plans ironed out within 48hours.
Rule # 1 = Have no Fear
Rule # 2 = Inform yourself and others
