Nuclear & Fault Lines In the USA

 Most Vulnerable U.S. Nuclear Plants

As the crisis at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant grows daily, the safety of domestic nuclear reactors is under serious scrutiny. Nuclear Regulatory Commission chairman Gregory Jaczko reassured Congress earlier this week that American nuclear reactors can survive major natural disasters, but some critics argue that U.S. reactors may be even more vulnerable than the ones in Japan. Nuclear reactors are engineered to withstand certain levels of disaster, based on projections beyond what the area has experienced. But should an unprecedented disaster take place, as with Japan, it's impossible to definitively establish whether the operating reactors in the U.S. would remain safe.

All I am saying is it is dumb to build Nuclear reactors,  and we need to figure out what to do with the spent Fuel Rods that Nobody wants in there Bark yard.
