It seems to me that the Nuclear Policy in Japan is for every single reactor Japan has in service; it needs two back-up reactors, and the closer to the

I'm not sure what that has to do with them cooling pools with water pumps... but I would love for you to elaborate on it if it does.
Any extra info?
Edit: Do you mean that Fukushima has two back-up reactors close by that they are cooling? Trying to figure out your post, but I think this may be
where you were going with it.

Yeah, the smart guys who pushed for all them reactors along the water-line and to have only one back-up generator per (up to six reactors) parcel of
land established for nuclear energy. They don't need nearly the number of reactors they utilize.
What I was saying is that Japan uses reactors instead of generators to keep all of their reactors "on-line", and capable of attaining cold-shutdown
If they were smart, they'd put more stock in common sense and not subject humanity to such an easily preventable consequence.
If we knew how reliable off-site generators were, we wouldn't need nuclear.
If we researched and developed solar energy with the same ambition as nuclear, we wouldn't need nuclear.
We don't need nuclear energy to envelope us into a bubble of mutations, disfigurements, still-born, and whatever else is in store for us...just to
keep the freaking lights on!
Thanks for letting me rant.
