So, if the worst happens, and everything grinds to a halt, what will happen when the money stops rolling in to the power companies running nuclear plants? Are the technicians going to just keep on working without any money or food? Who is going to keep the spent fuel cooling pools full of water? Or the reactors? What happens if they dry up? I know what happens when they dry up. All hell breaks loose.
I am just worried sick about who will make sure they shut down safely. Frankly, I don't think they will all be shut down correctly. And I don't think the waste will be stored correctly. Hundreds of reactors melting down and venting. Hundreds of spent fuel cooling pools drying up, the fuel rods exposed. So basically, the world is eventually going to become highly contaminated by Cesium 137. So it won't matter if you live in a remote off grid retreat. You will still be breathing the dust with the rest of us.
God, I hope I am wrong.
