US Nuclear Plant Without Power After Being Hit By Tornado

According to Dominion Virginia Power, the two nuclear reactors in Virgina shut down automatically due to power being cut to the plant. U.S. officials and Dominion Virgina Power have claimed that no radiation was released.
I don't think people want to realize the grave danger of nuclear power. We are living the worst nuclear accident human kind has ever experienced, yet people are not getting it. Look at all the sings around us.

The nuclear accident in Japan will continue to emit radiation for 6-9 months until they are able to containe it...

TEPCO says stabilizing troubled reactors to take at least 6 months

At the same time, there have been over 900 earthquakes in Japan and they continue to happen on daily basis. A volcano has also errupted.

If all these are not signs, then I don't know what they are. Unless all nuclear power plants are shut down world wide, we are bound to die from radiation. If we come out of the Fukushima accident alive, still many millions of people will have been affected. Children and the elders the most.

The Chernobyl power plant has been incased into a structure they call "sarcophagus". They have to continue to add cement to it each year and for the next 20,000 years. That's right. This is what we left behind for the future generations. The Chernobyl is not over yet. We will have to continue to monitor it for 20,000 years, just like Fukushim (if we can get it under control). Is this the clean energy they promised?

Unless we change our mentality and our habbits, we are going to drive our selves to extinction with mathematical precision. There is no doubt that at some point an accident of the scale of Fukushima will happen in the US. And then it will be too late. It is already too late for Japan. You can forget about that country. There is going to be so much radiation that anybody living there will be dying from cancer prematurely. And the US is getting affected each day more and more. Especially the west coast, the east coast and Florid. Cancer will rise drastically even in the US due to Fukushima. People will be eating and drinking radiation for decades. No way around that. Already the water in many cities contains radiation and milk has been appearing with radiation lately. If milk contains radiation, it means that vegetables and everything else contains radiation.

I am just wondering, when are people going to wake up and demand to shut down all nuclear plants???

You need to educate yourselves about radiation. There is no safe level of radiation. It accumulates into your body each time you breath it, drink it or eat it. That means that slowly but surely, your chance of getting cancer increase.

I just hope that people wake up, and understand the severity of the situation. Six or nine months from now it will be too late for the northern hemispher. The food all around the world will be contaminated and most everything we eat or drink will contain some level of radiation, which means cancer at huge numbers.

SHUT DOWN EVERY NUCLEAR PLANT IN YOUR AREA NOW. DEMAND THE EPA TESTS WATER AND MILK AND PRODUCE THE RESULTS. THEY HAVE CURRENTLY STOPPED DOING THAT, EVEN THOUGH RADIATION LEVELS WERE GROWING.
