Many operating plants have reached the end of their originally planned operating lives. Ironically, current concerns about the safety of nuclear power may prevent the construction of safer new facilities that incorporate the lessons learned over the past decades and by default extend the use of old plants beyond their intended lifespans.

What's the status of Fukushima now. The plants are not all cleaned up now, are they?

I think it will take several years to clean it up partially @resistion...and thousands years to clean it up fully...look at the Chernobyl as an example...Kris

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
