After describing  the disastrous siting errors  of some of the nuclear power plants, particularly my personal nemesis. Salem 1 and 2 and hope Creek 1 I think it is time to actually look at the Government figures describing the Consequences in case of a serious nuclear accident

 

The CRAC-2 report  short for :

Consequences of Reactor Accident

 

First let me explain. Nuclear Power , the “ATOM for Peace” program as handled by the  Joint Committee on Atomic Energy

. The Joint Committee on Atomic Energy existed from 1946-1977 (all detrimental effects of a civilian nuclear power plant were therefore secret)

In 1977 the committee was dissolved and all 140.000 documents were made available to the public  (and can be read here)

Consequently

A huge anti-nuclear movement was born.

After commissioning  several studies as to the consequences of a nuclear accident in the hope that the figures could be made to look better CRAC 2 published in 1982 was the final report

Salem and Hope Creek are not included in the study, but here are a few examples

Please take a look at the report and the plant near you :

(no wonder no Insurance Company in the world would want to handle this)
