The Earthquake Boogie-Man


The group contends an earthquake fault and aging components threaten community safety. Another complaint says a radioactive fire would break out if an earthquake caused drainage of the plant's spent fuel storage pools.

Ah, the good old days that used to keep me employed. In those days, every opposition group brought forth the earthquake genie. It was magnificent!

Of course, now the pendulum has swung too far the other way. The nuclear plants have used some out-of-date mumbo-jumbo to invoke immunity from any size of earthquake. It's sad that almost nothing is being done.
