  • Robair: So.. would these be super large marine style reactors or are they floating regular power station reactors that rely on gravity out to sea? Or is this something different altogether? I don't know what tsunami proof reactor means.
    I'm sure it will be fine. Also Canada should have done this first.

    They are modified submarine reactors.

    What could go wrong?

    And no, Canada should absolutely not have fucked up this bad first. ;)

    All 'Tsunami proof' is implying is what happened at Fukushima - the generator used to power the safety systems there was swamped by the sea, and the plant had no power to shut down.
  • Robair: Well I feel better that it's at least marine reactors, same thing is already roaming the planet so what's another one up north?
  • DrCaleb: They plan for up to a dozen of them, in various locations. 8O
  • Robair: So the north west passage will be Russian is what you're telling me.

  • Discussion continued in forums
