      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Excellent read.

 

Just this last weekend I drove with the family down to Portland. We passed by those cooling towers (I thought they were the never-used ones, is that right?), and had a discussion about nuclear power, and why people didn't like it. How they produce poison that's very tough to get rid of, etc.

 

Now I see this website. Crazy! I'm debating showing it to my kids. What do you think?

I think it would be an excellent way to show them the potential perils of "Nuclear Power" (said like Montgomery Burns) That site is crazy! I'd love to go do that!

Seems like the people that lived in the towns were totally clueless about nuclear reactors and radiation. If I saw some bigass fire and a shining cloud and glowing trees by the plant, I would be gettin the hell outa town as fast as I could and not standing on the bridge scoping it out. Gotta love those humane Soviets for explaining things to the residents. shocked.gif

Many Americans think that all nuclear power plants are alike, and that what happened at Chernobyl could happen in this country. That is not true. The US has never used graphite moderated reactors. It was the graphite fire and steam explosion that accounted for the wide dispersal of radioactive materials.

 

There are now designs for small modular reactors that are completely incapable of meltdown, even if all the water is drained from them. A power plant would consist of a large number of these smaller units. It is highly unlikely that they will ever be built.
