Just as San Onofre #3 has vented radioactive steam into an auxiliary building, so did THree Mile Island vent reactor water into an auxiliary building. Following that choice, some radioactive gas was vented into the crowded atmosphere of that area.

The sole thing the government did was to begin gathering statistical information on mutational events and cancers.

How much power are you using right now? Humans can easily tolerate temperatures between about 50 F and 100 F. Below that, significantly warmer clothing is required, and due to the lessened capacity of cold air to carry water, less evaporates and mold is significantly increased.
That spread is far more leeway than most self-pampering humans in the developed world allow.

Note the heavy increase in nighttime lighting. Running the world like a car lot is so utterly inappropriate a waste as to be unimaginable to anyone who cares about global warming. As my landlady recently grew older (it appears to have sudden effects) she began this last year to pollute the neighborhood with excessive lighting, on her front and back porches. Time to end this practice if you care about the health effects of nighttime lighting: increasing study shows it to have deleterious effect on the health of plants and animals, including human animals.

It can't be operated safely, EVER.
Corrosion of containment vessels was a big part of TMI meltdown, and quick corrosion of radioactive steam tubes at San Onofre is the problem here. Welds and the pure thinning of materials result in cracking due to the vibration of moving steam and turbines.

Done. We need to save the planet, NOT KILL IT. This is going to be one of the things, where if they operate it without it being fully safe, will jeopardize the lives of creatures. Not only Humans, but animals as well.

Noted and had already signed, facebook, twitter. Please will you go get solar panels for electricity, passive solar for heating and cooling, and solar water heaters. Other people have done this and they pay no bills on these utilities -- and no high power lines.

U.S. Army General: The Whole Northern Hemisphere is at Risk of Becoming Largely Uninhabitable

Considering the damage that Fukushima is doing from so far away, I really hope folks will take action on this one. We are jeopardizing our very survival now.

Signed. Hope we can keep it closed permanently. Thanks Cher

All our nuclear reactors are aging here in the US. I believe many should be decommissioned before they melt down.

Do those people not learn from the past or believe that somehow radioactive steam is only dangerous in other coutries?

Signed and noted but I am not sure that a nuclear reactor can ever be 100%. Even if there are no incidents during its' acitve life the question of how to get rid of the waste that is left when its' useful life ends. The other element of this story is that if we were to use less electricity then we wouldn't need so many power stations in the first place. Several of those commenting have made some really good points. For my part I fitted PV panels to my property, they produce 40% of the electricity that I need, if every household that could do this, or something similar, did so then we might just start to get somewhere.

You're all gonna hate this, but about a year after the Three Mile Island disaster, cleanup and other engineers found that there was a problem of accelerated corrosion in "the thousands of tubes carrying radioactive steam" from the reactor to heat the nonradioactive water to run the turbines.

THIS IS THE EXACT SAME REASON THAT T San Onofre #3 was shut down33 years later!

What this means, is that in the 3 decades between 1979 and 2012, NO TECHNICAL IMPROVEMENT was made to this clearly dangerously vulnerable design.

Enjoy your nuclear power back there, folks, but do NOT leak any more of your poison onto the continent of the wolf. Take your "clean" technology back to some other continent, and leave this one for the wolf, the frogs, the slugs and me...
