Hey, what's up, good morning to you. In the news today is sports, weather, and nuclear disaster (potentially).
There is nothing wrong our nation's nuclear power plants, right now. They're all functioning well! This could change under certain circumstances, though. A report out yesterday from the National Academy of Sciences says that the nuclear power industry's disaster planning and safety regulations "are clearly inadequate for preventing core-melt accidents and mitigating their consequences."
The U.S. nuclear industry should prepare for unlikely, worst-case scenarios when designing, building and regulating plants, the report recommends.
That is the big lesson the industry should take away from the March 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident in Japan, the report says. Earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, solar storms and situations that seem rare are precisely the events that triggered the world's three major nuclear disasters: Fukushima, Three Mile Island and Chernobyl.
Have u ever read that book The Black Swan, it's p. good.
