Hurricane Sandy slowed or shut a half-dozen U.S. nuclear power plants, while the nation's oldest facility declared a rare "alert" after the record storm surge pushed flood waters high enough to endanger a key cooling system.
NJ seems to have been hit hardest, lots of power outages, floddings and whatnot, and NY(C) has a lot of water damage if you go by the pictures.Despite the alert -- which is a serious but not catastrophic event that signals a "potential substantial degradation in the level of safety" -- the U.S. nuclear industry was broadly seen having passed the test. About a dozen alerts have been issued in the past four years, according to NRC press releases.
George W. Bush turned off the Hurricane and the global warming switch when he left the white house.auscyclefan94 said:The storm in Queensland last year was bigger than Katrina I think.
Surely some stupid Green will come out and say before the storm that 'Global warming is causing these storms' and if the storm is not as bad as expected, they will say, 'it is only natural variation'....Green logic.

Glad to hear that you made it through the storm without to much trouble.Alpe d'Huez said:The problem with "Green Logic" is that it's rooted in science. Or purports to be. But it creates theories that are not pressed to the same standards as accepted scientific theories. Hence, some green speculation may be true, but are often based on junk science and presented as fact. As such, much of this green logic actually discredits it's cause in the process. Aristotle might have called a lot of these logic theories false-syllogisms.
Went out today to look at damage. Not a whole lot. Mostly a bunch of flooding with plenty of branches down. Leaves nearly all gone from trees. A local small river is very high.
You need to move to Portland, Oregon. The city where they stopped picking up trash every week and gave you a compost bin that's hauled away every week instead. Trash was only collected twice a month. It didn't matter if you didn't want to participate, or will willing to pay more, it was mandatory. (And people there wondered why I voted for a lot of Republicans). Still love the city, but...Glenn_Wilson said:They are having a Recycling / Green initiative here at work....They are collecting all the PET bottles / aluminum cans. They put them into these big blue bags.
...except of course that part of the scientific community that also thinks that the connection between cigarettes and cancer is just a theory and has really absolutely ever been proven ...Cobber said:Well, the entire scientific community disagrees with you. But you probably know best.....
Wow, Alpe, are you in Omaha or Lincoln now? Huge change!Alpe d'Huez said:You need to move to Portland, Oregon.

Yes, moved from OR to NE. A different shade of political blue.
Anyone who is saying this isn't a big storm is frankly an insensitive idiot.nvpacchi said:Im guessing my apartment complex and our office got ransacked, when I get back ill post some pictures.
As much as people want to say this isn't a big storm, it is still unprecedented for South Jersey Shore.
