Why a Likely Natural Event Could Cause Nuclear Reactors to Melt Down and Our Grid to Crash via AlterNet

here are nearly 450 nuclear reactors in the world, with hundreds more either under construction or in the planning stages. There are 104 of these reactors in the USA and 195 in Europe. Imagine the havoc it would wreak on our civilization and the planet’s ecosystems if we were to suddenly experience not just one or two nuclear meltdowns, but many more of them. How likely is it that our world might experience an event that could ultimately cause multiple reactors to fail and melt down at approximately the same time? Unless we take significant protective measures, this apocalyptic scenario is possible.

Since more than one third of all Americans live within 50 miles of a nuclear power plant, this is a serious issue that should be given top priority. In the past 152 years, the Earth has been struck by roughly 100 solar storms causing significant geomagnetic disturbances (GMD), two of which were powerful enough to rank as “extreme GMDs.”

    Nuclear waste is radioactive and safe disposal is very difficult and expensive. From my end, I make sure I contribute to preserving the environment using only organic pest control Beaverton when treating homes and businesses for pests.

    In August, inflation in Poland was the highest in 20 years, and the NBP interest rates were the lowest in history. Meanwhile, Poles have more and more money, which is quickly losing its value. Despite this, savings bonds of the State Treasury, a safe and simple way to protect capital, remain not very popular.

    In August, the CPI inflation reported by the Central Statistical Office (GUS) amounted to 5.4%, significantly higher than the NBP inflation target of 2.5%. Despite this, the Polish central bank maintains the lowest interest rates in history. As a result, commercial banks offer their clients low interest rates on current and term deposits. The yield on a typical deposit is so low that savers prefer to keep their money in bank accounts. At the end of July, households gathered over PLN 850 billion in current deposits and over PLN 150 billion in deposits up to 2 years.
