Turkey Moves N-plant Closer to Fault


Turkey is having its problems trying to get a nuclear plant. First, anybody that anybody has ever heard of, ran away screaming, leaving some shady company bidding a high price. Now, the authorities are canceling this, claiming the price is too high, and moving the plant closer to the North Anatolian Fault, which will make it cheaper.

You can see from the map, that there probably isn't any place that is good for an n-plant, but there are places which are worse than others. All the population is along the Black Sea, probably made more habitable by the monstrous fault, much like the San Andreas and California. So, let's put a Russian Mafia nuclear plant on it, yeah!

Slightly off topic but the UK has announced its new potential nuclear sites - including Wylfa on Anglesea, not that far from the site of one of the UK's largest earthquakes (Llŷn Peninsula earthquake July 19, 1984 M5.4)
