      Interesting info. I wasn’t aware of the fault line running up through the midwest.

        I’m not a professional in this, but could BP have drilled in an unstable area of the gulf that attaches to the New Madrid Fault line?

        I did read this somewhere, just can’t find it.

        I do believe the New Madrid Fault line is unstable. Yellow Stone doesn’t look good either. Then you have the California Andreas Fault Line. The earth is changing.

        The point is, we have no business having Nuclear Power without being able to control it when something happens. There isn’t even provisions for the public to go, if an accident happens.

        Japan’s accident is horrific, this should open our eyes on how we are inept to deal with a situation like this.

      If this is the case, then they better get to it before everything is destroyed unsuitable for crop growth, the water contaminated, and the air is unfit to breath.
