You think do you ? well apparently very well , what do "pretty much" and "stable" mean in your opinion? And what could have happened that is worse
than what IS CURRENTLY happening?
(before you read any farther you may want to check a page or two in this 850 or so page thread :
I am so glad that you are telling me what is really important, I would have been lost without that wonderful and magnanimous help.
Sooo they covered it for something imaginary that didn't happen,according to what you think , and what in your voluminous opinion was that thing that
didn't happen that they covered it for ?
I don't think nuclear power is bad because of this incident.
Interesting ...this thread is about MSM ignoring news , but I suppose throwing your testimonial for nuclear power in is only about six lanes of
traffic off topic , but I'll bite : you are offering us this analysis because it re-assures that nuclear power is not "bad" and so it's o.k to not
report when it has problems.
And , for the record, just what kind of an incident would it take for you to 'think' Nuclear power was "bad"?( I mean if a 7 out of 7 is o.k by your
standards, do we have to invent bigger disasters , like say make the scale go to 8 )
The nuclear power plant being built today are exponentially more advanced than the ones built 30 years ago.
That is what I like about ATS , expert analysis, but in this case I must disagree Mr. nuclear scientist; reactors heat water , they have not
exponentially increased the way neutron bombardment gets fissionable materials hot, nor have they found a way to 'exponentially' make them safer, nor
found a way to 'exponentially' decrease the highly toxic waste produced.
Reactors heat water it's about the least sophisticated thing on the planet , unfortunately it's insanely dangerous and housed in one of the most
complex machines in existence
If the media wants to shield the public from being swayed away from building these more advanced nuclear power plants,...
I thought the media was in it for "what could have happened"?...er wait...now they are shielding innocent people from the horrible drudgery of
independent thought by doing nothing ...wow what amazingly efficient heroes.
and no one is talking about 'more advanced,blah, blah blah' we are talking ( in this thread ) about how media is ignoring 3 old decrepit poorly
maintained units in meltdown now poisoning a quarter of Japan into un-livability and dusting the northern hemisphere with radio-nucleotides
... I would have to agree with the medias standpoint.
This is so awesome I could almost cry ( *sniff* ) , you "would have to" huh? Faaantastic . So let me get this straight; according to you they aren't
covering the story because of what didn't happen, and are protecting people from there own stupidity in the process and you "have to" agree with them
..O.K. I think I see
If the population cannot see the difference in the safety differences of the technology being built then and the technology being built
Er, once again this thread is about an actual real event ( of media black-out ) and not vague testimonials to nebulously identified 'technology'
differences (with no supporting facts), but if you insist :
I think most people might have a hard time seeing 'the difference..in diferences', but
the presumption that you and the media are smarter than everyone else in the world on this subject is different in it's differences as an insult to
the other ATS posters and almost every human being on this planet , but given that , this is not about new tech it's about old crappy poorly
maintained tech, corrupt politicians , greedy corporations , and the death and sickness of hundreds if not hundreds of thousands of people over the
next few decades and the media silence that is allowing it , in case you miss the upshot you and everyone you know is expendable to the kind of people
that would try to keep this kind of thing secret .
But to address your issues IF new nuke tech is so shiny and safe why not bombard us with information contrasting the two ...oh yeah because most of
the reactors on this planet are old crappy pieces of tech with the same exact kind of political and profit motive problems as Fukushima
then maybe they need to be lied to.
Ahh, it's like a symphony for my ears ...finally the truth... this thread: "Media ignores Fukushima fire" your answer ; "..(people) need to be lied
to". Now I should point out that silence is slightly different from outright lying, but seeing as you advocate lying based solely on your
non-factually supported suppositions you have let us know the rest of your post was complete pump ,
and more importantly have given us the reason "why" media would/should go silent,
because they are lying to us through omission
, thank you so much for that it really simplifies things.
