US Nuclear Disaster Could Be Worse than Fukushima, Experts Warn via News wire

The authorities are underestimating the risk posed by old nuclear plants in the United States and ignoring the safety watchdog data.

(Newswire.net — May 29, 2017) — The US has been underestimating the safety risk from its nuclear facilities that could lead to a  worse accident than the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, the Science Daily reports.

According to a new study, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NCR) is ignoring the facts indicating that a single incident can lead to a major disaster.

In a study published on May 26 in the Science magazine, researchers from Princeton University and the Union of Concerned Scientists warned that nuclear spent fuel fire at one site can lead to “trillion-dollar consequences” and terrific scenarios worse than those caused by the explosion and the leakage of radioactive water from reactors at Fukushima, which was the biggest nuclear disaster of this century so far.

Hypothetically, fire would contaminate an area larger than New Jersey and force mass relocations, according to the study.

The researchers simulated a scenario according to which spilled fuel catches fire at Peach Bottom nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania, causing a domino effect and the relocation of some eight million people, while also inducing $2 trillion in damages.

[…]

The researchers proposed that spent fule  be transfered to dry storage casks after it is cooled in pools for around five years, but the NRC, which has previously considered such measures, decided the move would be too costly.

One of the study authors, Frank von Hippel, directly blames the NRC for downgrading the potential risk of fire spreading through nuclear facilities.

[…]

At least three major nuclear incidents were registered in the US last year, but the media withheld the information from the public, acording to anonhq.com, the website of an independent and investigative news organization.

    How Safe Is DMT?

    DMT is a hallucinogen that packs a pretty fast and powerful trip.

    Powerful as it is, it appears to have the lowest side effect profile compared with other psychedelic drugs like LSD and magic mushrooms (psilocybin).

    Still, DMT carries some risks.

  22. testogen australia says

    TestoGen is a natural testosterone booster with all-organic ingredients that were created with aging men in mind. Muscle Club Limited created this product testogen. Muscle Club Limited has been in business for over ten years and is based in Nottingham, United Kingdom. According to studies, testosterone levels in men peak and then begin to decline as they age, starting as early as their mid-twenties. This is a cause for concern, and solutions to restore these dwindling hormonal levels had to be found. You lack interest and focus, which impacts your performance in bed. It can also lead to an increase in body fat and a decrease in testosterone levels mean low testosterone. But it’s never too late to take a break and try something new.

  23. testogen nz says

    Based on our testing and research, TestoGen works for many but not all men. Many TestoGen users report that the supplement has been very effective in encouraging testosterone production in their bodies, and it’s a generally quite safe alternative for people who don’t want to engage in full hormone-replacement therapy (HRT). Our testing suggests that consistency is crucial for seeing the gains you’re looking for, in addition to patience; this isn’t an overnight transformation. Animal studies confirm that D-aspartic acid raises testosterone levels. Clinical trials on humans are still somewhat lacking for d-aspartic acid, with some studies indicating clear increase in testosterone and others showing a lack of effect.

  24. prime male ireland says

    Prime Male is a natural male enhancement supplement that has been formulated especially for men who are searching for ways to boost up their testosterone levels. After the age of 30, the production of testosterone in the body reduces drastically and important measures need to be taken to keep your t-levels in check. Low testosterone levels can hamper your sexual appetite, make you feel tired, and deteriorate your mental health as well. You may even experience difficulty in getting an erection, hair loss, and constant mood swings. Prime Male claims to provide a solution to all these problems caused by low t-levels. It does not contain any testosterone in itself but aims to stimulate the production of testosterone in your body naturally.
