Submission + - Safe Nuclear Power Plants.

kafros writes: Greece is going through a media turmoil on the subject of nuclear power plants. Government (conservative party) does not dare to touch the subject, and the opposition parties flame anyone that raises the question. Arguments against are: earthquake activity, nuclear waste disposal, mechanical failures/human errors leading to accidents, and terrorism. Question is: can we build safe reactors, how much do they cost more (if they do), and who builds them at the moment? Can someone working in a nuclear plant comment (if it is allowed by contract) on the procedures followed for the above problems?
