Whats funny is that you would probobly think the Japanese are on top of their tsunami preparedness. I mean "tsunami" is a Japanese phrase.
So they put FOUR reactors on the coast, next to a fault zone, and then pray to their Shinto Shrines that an earthquake will never happen there....
O my god...humans really are retarded
Is it still safe to buy Sony's?[ (no reason given)[
Make sure that the backup generators are protected against both earthquake damage and that the backup generators can not possibly be damaged by either flood or seismic damage?

Nuclear power is a gigantic scam. There is no way to eliminate the waste. They can only store it, usually on-site, until an "accident" happens. Imagine if you had to store all the poop you make and could never get rid of it.
The entire "industry" is one huge people-killing system. It should not be used for the production of electricity for general use. We have plenty of oil, natural gas, and coal.
