Congressman Edward Markey has suggested that nuclear plants being planned for right now cannot be built on earthquake fault lines.
He would like that bit of solid reasoning to be the equivalent of a law.
We agree with Congressman Markey absolutely and positively.
It would be a virtual act of insanity to allow nuclear reactors to be built on a fault line.
There is already at least one nuclear reactor, Diablo Canyon in California, which is built on the San Andreas fault line.
Obviously, given what has happened in Japan, everyone living near to that reactor is in a danger zone.
Thank you, Ed Markey for using something most of your colleagues don’t understand – it’s called common sense.
