U.S. Nuclear Power Plants Weren’t Built for Climate Change


https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2019-nuclear-power-plants-climate-change/


These are the areas expected to flood an average of at least twice a month by 2060, based on data from the Union of Concerned Scientists.

yep,...


the world's best and brightest put these words to paper on Jan. 10 1920:


THE HIGH CONTRACTING PARTIES,
IN ORDER TO PROMOTE international co-operation and to achieve international peace and security
by the acceptance of obligations not to resort to war
by the prescription of open, just and honourable relations between nations
by the firm establishment of the understandings of international law as the actual rule of conduct among Governments, and
by the maintenance of justice and a scrupulous respect for all treaty obligations in the dealings of organised peoples with one another
AGREE to this Covenant of the League of Nations

19 years, 7 months and 22 days later they were horribly wrong,...

to the tune of 34 million plus lives,...

so now these best and brightest are predicting 24 floods per year to occur in 41 years,...

pardon me while I call:

I don't disagree with the illustrated flood potential, but storm surge is much more predictable than say a 9.0 earthquake (giving a bit more time for shutdown.)  Still requires planning and controls.

Storm surge cannot strike up a cliff, earthquakes can.  Storm surge is limited by striking distance/elevation....earthquakes are not.  Earthquakes are obviously less predictable.

"Having dealt with it no it isnt"

Hahaha....man you are something else.

Please explain when you dealt with a 45ft tsunami 41 minutes after an earthquake and how it's not different than say....a 15ft storm surge from a hurricane that's been brewing for over a week before striking?

Hmmm... "U.S. Nuclear Power Plants Weren’t Built for Climate Change"

Maybe not, but if we had build enough of them early enough, we might have helped prevent it.

Crickets from TVA....what a surprise. Dude lives in a world that is saturated with bullish*t. Bullsh*t that the "smartest person in Nuclear" continues to vomit all over himself.

Hard to have more than crickets from somebody who can't have a normal discussion.  We all get a little "locked in" to what we think is the right answer at times..I am guilty as well, but TVA is usually like that.  This one isn't about personal experience, it is about probability through tiime of things that don't normally happen.  Earthquakes can happen anytime, anywhere albeit with different probabilities in different areas.  Storm surge is dependent on the weather and location which is WAY more predictable even though obviously not 100%.
