BOOOOOM!

Nuclear bombs!

100,000 people killed in 1 second.

Here’s how it’s used for power and electricity

Some really, really smart scientists and businessmen figured out how to create electricity from splitting the atom and controlling the power of the resulting reaction.

A very simple idea, but extremely complicated process to split the atom’s nucleus, one of the smallest particles measurable to humans.

First, you need to hire some people to dig through a lot of earth to get a specific type of uranium or plutonium ore. Something reactive. Workers often get sick from this type of work.

Then you need about 4 billion dollars (and some 15 years) to build a very large, complex building with lots of materials and very close to water. ‘Cause you need lots of water.

Inside big tanks, the fission process takes place. A reaction that creates so much heat, that it . . .

The steam turns a turbine and power goes out to the grid.

. . . Where you get to charge people for it and tell them that it’s “green” energy.
We sure love energy!

The reaction doesn’t stop though, and like dominoes, these excited particles want to disperse as fast as possible. You gotta do something quick!

These particles are actually pretty dangerous.

(Some say that no dose of ionizing radiation is safe!)

So, you must put them away in cans! With the water.

Because you need to keep them cool.

If you’re not sure what to do with the cans of waste, you can always build more cans to hold the waste!

 Disclaimer: These cans should not be opened for at least 50 years.
(And are often not meant to last more than 30!)

But sometimes there are natural disasters that come into play. And these expensive power plants melt down.

Everyone is evacuated as the power company tries to deal with the situation. It may take a few days before they want to publicly admit it.

Kids dont play outside and must be monitored regularly for the effects of radiation.

‘Thanks’

they say as you pay your electric bill.

TEPCO states that “the waste no longer belongs to them

once it leaves the plant”

    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide
    credit and sources back to your website? My blog site is in the
    exact same area of interest as yours and my visitors would genuinely

  15. 同一市区町村内の転居の場合でも、収容局が異なるところになると、使用していた電話番号が使う事ができなくなるでしょう。

    電話番号が変わったというアナウンスを流してもらえますが、転居後の住所と変更後の電話番号も必要なところには伝えておいた方がいいです。

    電気料金だって、使用者の多い日中のほうが高く、使用者の減少する夜間の方が割安ですよね。業者へ引越しの依頼を行うと、見積もりを出してくれると思います。

    問題ないことがほとんどですが、念のために確認をしっかりしておくことが良いと思われます。

  16. Hello there I am so happy I found your site, I really found you by
    accident, while I was browsing on Digg for
    something else, Anyways I am here now and would just like to say kudos for a fantastic post and a all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design),

    When I originally commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I receive four emails with
    the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!
