Hold on. The dunce that built Chernobyl - I'll leave that to the experts that we do have here. In My Humble Opinion, the nukes and the hydro plants may be the only chance we have to save this country from the Y2K monster. 1M people? How many M people will die in this country if we have no power? No, I don't like the idea of playing the dice on this issue. What choice do we have? Are they safe? Yes, we have containment - works with no computer. Have we ever needed it? Yes, TMI. Did it work? Yes. Any dead as a result? Maybe. How many? Next to none.
Your opinion, Mr Cook? <:|=
-- Sysman (firstname.lastname@example.org), March 11, 1999.
The only thing GLOWING around here, is your stupidity. Unless you live in Russia, nothing will glow! The waste from a plant is a bigger problem than a meltdown. As stated, it work at TMI. Get over it!

This is fascinating. I'm on an e-list and we're talking about junk science and radiation. Let me quote myself. ;)
Meeting the Civil Defense "greats" York, Teller,,Kearney, Barbier, etc. was a true joy. They all had one thing in common, calm demeaners based on total self assurance because they knew what they were talking about and they knew that saving human lives is moral. Ever notice that the promoters of junk science are very emotional and like to verbally attack people? I think it is because they know they are lying and they know that there actions will kill people and they know that both of those are immoral.
I guess I should have added profanity.
Can anybody remember who said this? "Profanity is evidence of a weak mind trying to make a strong point."
A word to the wise is sufficient. An enclopedia to the fool is not enough.
For Linda and honest others still working their way up the nuclear learning curve. The nuclear "glowing" is Chebechev radiation and is only found in active reactions. No form of fallout can glow or cause things to glow.(other than phosphor as in TV picture tubes, florescent lights etc.) Only prompt neutron radiation can cause non-radioactive substances to become radioactive.

I would like to say that I did not start this thread. So any comments to "glowing" are not directed at me.

It seems that your words are very effective indeed to have reached "bottom feeders" such as the one that started this thread!
I've noted before that one needn't be a bricklayer to recognize a crooked wall, and in the same vein, it should be noted that one needn't be a nuclear power engineer to recognize someone who is.
I've also noted that there are two ways to "get it". You can either understand the details yourself, or accept the conclusions of someone who does and whom you trust.
Now beyond, "They make steam with radioactivity", I know next to nothing about nuclear power. I do however, have the same concerns as anyone might have. I found myself therefore in the position of wondering what to do/think/feel about the possible/probable/likely consequences of Y2K vis a vis the nuclear power plants that might/could/would affect me and mine.
Your unselfish and public sharing of your expertise has solved that particular problem for me. I trust you completely and I value your instruction on the matter highly. Thank you and Gig 'em Aggies!

Three resounding cheers for the rational postings of Robert Cook.

"We should abolish January and February. If we then divided the 59 extra days between July and August, we will cut out energy needs by about one-third through eliminating the coldest days of the year. Cold is largely a psychological matter. If people look at the calendar and see that it is July, they will be quite happy to turn the heat down." John Galbratih, Ohio state representative.

Hi Card; You have stated the perfect political solution. Please cc Al.

I'd just like to congratulate ROBERT COOK for being insulted on the internet.
Robert, I don't know if you're right or wrong, but I can say that your posts always sound on the mark to me.
Robert Cook, YOU DA MAN!!!

I add my congrats to GA's. Wear this thread as a badge of honor Mr. Cook and fellow FRLian.
Just ask Diane, sometimes the temperature is subzero at the top ;-)

Is this "Troll-of the-Day?" Or is there a school vacation on?
Robert, you're "awesome. Troll, perhaps you are "in awe" of one who know's his stuff.
