In may last year American physicists also warned of the danger of radioactive contamination due to fires at nuclear power plants
Experts believe that the Commission ignores the fact that most of the country’s nuclear power nuclear fuel is located in the vicinity of nuclear waste. Ignition of waste material, according to scientists, may result in the release into the environment of radioactive matter and thus catastrophic consequences.
According to experts, a fire at a nuclear power plant can release into the environment of radioactive material is sufficient to defeat the territory’s area two times the size of new Jersey. In this case, should be evacuated for more than eight million people, economic losses from the fire will amount to two trillion dollars.
Damage from accident is comparable to the consequences of a major earthquake or terrorist attack. Disaster can be avoided if the Commission in relation to the nuclear power plant will take the necessary regulatory measures. Independent Agency of the government bothers to do this, as the authors suggest, the pressure from representatives of the nuclear industry.
In may last year American physicists also warned of the danger of radioactive contamination due to fires in nuclear power plants. Estimates provided by the scientists showed that the magnitude of potential disasters would exceed the losses in Japan as a result of the accident at the NPP “Fukushima-1”.
