Agreed, they can learn from what they went thru at Chernobyl.

No need to reinvent the wheel except in a case where it can be proven as viable.

I think one thing that might make it cheaper for them would be hybrid concrete called

Printing $65 billion a month is the only reason the US hasn't had a Economic collapse.

The US is technically bankrupt if it was run as a business.

Back in 2010 the FDIC even had a negative balance sheet.

The US in financial terms can't rescue a little girl's lemonade stand except
by printing more funny money.

The only reason it is working now is due to the faith of all the ppl on the treadmill.

They may not be perfect, but they have posted information the Japanese government
lied about then it later came out to be true.

So at a minimum they are often forcing the corrupt government and corrupt Tepco to
tell the truth sometimes, I think its impossible to get them to tell the truth all the time.

I found out about this guy by watching the film Collapse in 2009, and since then
I see the US in a totally different perspective.

The funny thing was I thought I was awake after seeing "911 press for truth", but
honestly I did not know just how bad it really was til watching Collapse in 2009.

The UNIX philosophy basically involves giving you enough rope to hang yourself. And then a couple of feet more, just to be sure.
