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 Technology is something we all need to worry about and think about. With the latest news coming out of china we could all have a major problem on our hands. Technology News Australia recently investigated several technological possibilities that could be an issue to the welfare of all Australians.

    Could this be why the Australian government is looking into buying the new nuclear submarines that has been a hot topic on Australian tech news websites in the recent past fee weeks.

    As the US is building more nuclear power stations to power it’s country. It is Australia that seems to be lagging behind on this technology as we import more carbon fuels to keep the lights on for Australian homes and businesses.

  11. Tech News Australia says

    There has been a lot of talk about atomic testing in the the Australian news media lately. Technology News Australia recently published an article about the types of nuclear reactors that are going to be used on the new submarines ordered by the Australian defence force.

    It was interesting to see the statistics on just how many nuclear reactors are currently being used in the US as opposed to Australia. There has never been any news of a reactor meltdown in Australia. But its by guess this is because of the amount of reactors on Australian shores.

    Many tech news website in Australia have been focused on the new stories of reactor technology and many are starting to get worried about the reputation and regulations of there operators.

    A lot of research has gone into the design of atom bombs. Rutherford, one of the original developers of the atom bomb, predicted the behavior of a nuclear warhead, but didn’t expect it to destroy cities

  12. tech news says

    There have been new reports in the Technology News Australia website about nuclear reactors and how they behave unexpectedly. There has been a lot of news in the media lately about Australia buying new submarines powered by reactors that have actually been known for melting down.

    I think this is something we all need to worry about be concerned about as this could cause a nuclear event here in Australia.

  13. Peter says

    Technology News Australia reported nuclear reactors in Australia have been having issues at the core that have been investigated by members of serval technology and science associations. There has also been recent news of new nuclear subs being brought by the Australian govermennt
