The Extreme Deregulation of The Nuclear Industry By Trump Is Setting Up A Nuclear Accident Soon

No reactors in America have true fail-safe, backup now. Twenty or thirty-year-old rusted, surplus diesel generators that will not even crank-up, when they try to test them. Like the ones at Palos Verdes, Besse, Waterford, Fermi and Brunswick. Power lines that would stave off meltdowns are now completely vulnerable to storms, to earthquakes and outages, like never before. All of the High-Level-Nuclear-Waste, Ussed-fuel pools, at the reactors in America, are cracked. They are over full with high-level nuclear waste. Most all reactor supervision, is gone now. Deregulated and unsupervised like the ones in the Ukraine. Thanks to Trump.

Each of the 97 dangerous nuclear reactors in America is like an independent corporate fiefdom, as it stands under Trump, now.

Their owners are letting them fall apart. Many of their owners are allowing cheap, underpaid contractors to run them, to run amok, in plants using outdated computer-operating systems.

Technicians periodically, illegally dump large boluses of radionuclides into the environment.

Technicians and unsupervised corporations, bring the dangerous old radionuclide spewing, monsters to the brink of meltdown, on a daily basis. Their control systems are inadequate and archaic. The technicians running them are incompetent. Their pumps and pipes. Their reactor vessels, and containment corroded, clogged, embrittled and disintegrating. All because of the insane Trump policies.

The 97 reactors in America, are all embrittled.

Many technicians are contractors who are have been caught going to work on drugs. Many are not well trained.

Most reactors are on bodies of water, making them vulnerable to the new ferocious breeds of storms we now experience. Many are also on earthquake faults.

All plans to reinforce the reactors, to prevent a Fukushima multiple catastrophe, have been cancelled under Trump. Cancelled by this authoritarian regime that is obsessed with privatizing everything and taking away supervision of even nuclear reactors. The chaotic Trump regime has an insane neoliberal ideological obsession to deregulate industrial poisons, pesticides, chemicals to the point of extreme irrationality, including cutting off any supervision of nuclear reactors, of all things. No other person would be stupid enough or crazy enough to do such a thing. No one in history has in America, though it has not stopped meltdowns in these death machines.

All reactors are on bodies of water and/or polluting aquifers. They are polluting and destroying the surrounding areas.

Palo Verdes is contaminating the precious and severely depleted water supply, of the meager Phoenix aquifer with Cesium 137 plutonium, tritium etc.

Technicians find toilet paper clogging the cooling pipes of the Palo Verdes reactors by Phoenix because, the plant is run on and cooled by sewer water from Phoenix.

The Palo Verdes reactors are in the middle of a desert. The plant's coolant water supply is sewer water, from Phoenix. Has been and always will be because Phoenix is in a godforsaken low-water desert. Palo Verdes' pipes are corroded. Palo Verdes' backup generators have failed four times in the past seven years.

Technicians are caught high on drugs in nuclear reactors and nuclear submarines in America now.

Even Hillary would not be so stupid. Hillary would not be abrogating arms treaties and explicitly bragging about building low-yield nukes for a limited preemptive nuclear strike.

Hillary would not be building intermediate-range nuke missiles to provoke the Russians. Hillary would not be forcing the Russians to build nuclear-powered cruise missiles, like the one that caused a nuclear detonation recently.
