We talk about natrium, the super duper new cooling system for the new (fake) unclear reactors in Wyoming. Basically salt water replaces fresh water – not one word on the source of the heat – presumably we’re still using magic rocks.
Nuclear stories are like soap operas. They go nowhere over decades.
Here’s a story that continues the saga about the eyesore that I live near.
My favorite line: there’s 380 (11) and that’s just too many to count. They need predictive models (think COVAIDS) to guess the condition of sed rods. COMPLETE FICTION.
Notice no names, just commenting corporations. Who knew corporations could speak?
I wonder if, and it’s a big if, humanity wakes up to the covaids lie, they’ll look for other biggies.
Unlikely, since the nuclear lie is well over 100 years old.
OPG can’t inspect all 380 tubes in each reactor – there’s simply too many. Instead, it feeds data from the small number of inspected tubes into mathematical models used to predict how long the rest can safely remain in service. (More than two-thirds of tubes will never be inspected.) One model predicts how quickly tubes will accumulate deuterium. Others estimate how much they will weaken as they accumulate deuterium, and are known as material fracture toughness models.
Why did the perfect power that could save the world not work when the other half ass green methods failed?
Since nuclear power is as fake as nuclear science, always look for a pathetic excuse.
Why, here’s one now.
“It’s very rare for weather issues to shut down a nuclear plant,” said Brett Rampal, director of nuclear innovation at the Clean Air Task Force. “Some equipment in some nuclear plants in Texas has not been hardened for extreme cold weather because there was never a need for this.”
And I said, at one point, that this was a historical memo, that it was — it was not based on new threat information. And I said, “No one could have imagined them taking a plane, slamming it into the Pentagon” — I’m paraphrasing now — “into the World Trade Center, using planes as a missile.”
These people aren’t stupid, but they know the great masses are.
