smugness not..
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, June 06 2013 @ 12:40 PM EDT
>Better to ask yourself why the water pump emergency generators were housed
outside what was the strongest building at Fukashima - the main reactor
building? Was it due to the cost of making it a little larger to house the
emergency generator inside what is effectively a bunker?

Sorry, but THINK, man!

If something happens (like an EMERGENCY) INSIDE the reactor building, wouldn't
it make a whole lot of NOT sense to make sure the emergency equipment was
OUTSIDE the emergency area where it would be (1) undamaged by the emergency, and
(2) available to people who needed to use it responding to the emergency?

The main point of the containment building wasn't to protect the reactor from
nature--there are many other, equally expensive, edifices that do not get such
heavy protection--but to protect the neighborhood from the reactor.

Which is in itself not a bad idea, just ask the Ukrainians.
