I'm afraid the nukes are just time bombs waiting to either be used as weapons by terrorists, or to fall prey to our environmental disasters. Then we will be sorry. Who really knows the extent of the radiation damage unleashed by Chernoble and other similar eppisodes. Look at Japan!

wish someone had stopped the Japanese (and the US, too) from building nuclear reactors in high risk earthquake zones.....we have the technology to not need nuclear power, oil/gas/coal, but governments and businesses aren't willing to do what is safest/best for the future...they just see the here and now and the money.....go Greenpeace!

"Stormed onto the grounds", non-violent or not, will get you head shot off here.
I pray the stay safe, as well as know what they're doing!

There isn't anywhere in the world that is really safe from earthquakes - here in the UK we used to think that - but in fact if one looks at history, our Cathedrals are excellent records of earthquakes going back up to a thousand years - as they regularly were struck by them - and the Cathedrals, being the largest and most important buildings suffered most noticably to those recording history at the time.

Hooray for wind energy, tide energy, wave energy, solar energy, geothermal energy - we should be investing more in them - like Germany and Sweden, who are both out of recession....

Government comment: "the problem is not that they got in, but that there are people who want to get in, it's not good to want to enter a nuclear plant".

I am french : I don't like nuclear.
I think it quite funny. Each time, Greenpeace manage to get inside but if you, the ordinary people, you want to take a photo-souvenir from the road of a nuclear power plant policemen come out of nowhere and jump on you. Security ?
