Earthquake Nuclear Panic is Over
Of course, if a speck of that were to be spent on science... Not to happen! Now that the panic is squelched by the promise of a lawyer review, I hope that newspaper guy abandons his article. Really, with no money spent in the last 20 years, and no prospect of any money, why would anybody speak out on earthquakes, other than to issue the standard platitudes that 'it seems like a nice quiet area'.
Willful ignorance in geology will continue to drain billions from Ontario. You will only find out the true cost of the Niagara Tunnel when they throw on the last bucket of concrete. We have the Bruce Thing, and new nuclear. We may have to engage in useless seismic upgrades to the existing plants. All of this is done blind. I really prefer to be the crazy guy with a blog that nobody reads... :)
