Nuclear safety: Reactors that can’t meltdown

The recent tragic events in Japan have brought the issue of nuclear energy to the forefront of public discussion. While radical environmentalists have exploited the issue to advance anti-nuclear policies, others have tried to defend this important energy source on the grounds of its importance to our economy and standard of living. Missing in the discussion is the fact that important breakthroughs in nuclear engineering should now be given proper vetting – developments that could reduce or eliminate the threat of nuclear meltdown.In order to grasp the significance of these breakthroughs, a basic understanding of the development of nuclear power technology [...]

I have always had great respect for National Geographic because its material has always been well researched and presented. The programme showed how the sea level rose dramatically 125,000 years ago. Geological records showed underwater corals that were frozen in time in rock formations that are now some metres above sea level. Professional geologists explained how science was able to show all this to be true. Up to this point, the programme was good. Then, suddenly, the programme switched to projecting sea [...]
