Subjcet: Water to cool broken reactor in Green River.
You folks do not have enough water to cool a broken reactor.
I suggest you prepare a emegency response team
to clean up nuke waste before you start up the reactor.
TMI broke down in 5 years, Japan 20 years.

TMI broke more than 30 years ago, the reactor was cooled, nobody was hurt and nobody was killed. Other normally used energy systems have hurt and killed hundreds of people in those past 30 years and continue to do so. Burralo Hollow is an example. Anti-nuclear fear mongering has caused more deaths, injuries and illness than Fukushima and TMI combined.
