2050 nuclear energy activity risks report:

-Analyst: We know that sooner or later a reactor is going to blow within the next 5 years, it's a matter of probability based on past history and the conditions of old power plants, some reaching now 90 years of age. Minimum casualties are esteemed to be 200 000 people killed instantly, highest casualties would be 23 million instant deaths. Long-term casualties are still being determined. First conclusion of the report is that all reactors reaching above level 3 risk should be in a shutting down process, which means shutting down 6 nuclear power plants for your company.
End of report.
-CEO1: Thank you, that'll be all. (to his colleagues). So what do you think? Should we shut down 6 of our reactors?
- CEO2: We can't, global economy impact would be catastrophic, those reactors represent 91 billion dollars of electricity per year.
-CEO3: Then we must ask for help from the governments.
-CEO4: Impossible, they're too much indebted to do anything.
-CEO3: What then? We can't allow a cataclysmic devastation, It would create a considerable economic impact as well.
-CEO4: But not for us.
- CEO2: I propose we shut down one or two of the less profitable reactors just for the company's image and we silence everyone else that has heard about the report. It would keep us safe from any scandal and economic disaster.
-CEO1: It sounds acceptable.
-CEO4: I agree.
-CEO3: What about the human casualties? We can't accept that!
- CEO2: Since when was that a direct concern for us?

A little anecdote to show how power and money can destroy men's hearts. The image is in no way related to what a nuclear accident from a reactor would look like as they cannot explode in a mushroom cloud.

I thought of that when the news started spreading information about the nuclear power plants disasters in Japan: why did they ever build nuclear power plants in a highly seismic area?

I would like to use your picture of Apocalypse on a website I'm building to talk about the story of Noah and the ark. Noah survived the end of the world as he knew it. We could face the end of the world through nuclear holocaust, an agricultural crisis leading to massive starvation, the earth's being hit by and asteroid, the earth's coming too near a rogue black hole, and more. Anyway, your wonderful picture would be great for illustrating the page. I would credit you. OK?

@covewood I agree it would be fun if all those conditions were met... but haha the odds of that are against you. You'd probably be left with half a functional body if you lived at all... but it's a nice thought.

Humanity is doomed with the people in charge, we have a generation separated into believing that the left is evil and the right is good, and another faction believing that religion should be part of a country's government and law, the process of selecting good leaders have been tossed aside for ones that the government wants and not what the people demand. The way thing's are going there's going to be race wars in Europe and revolutions in America and in good old Australia we'll be up to our heads with the idiots in power. I don't know what the middle east is like, but people sure as heck would not like the idea that religious control such as that is a good thing.
Well that's the summary of my thoughts on the factor of global issues as for nuclear war, its becoming a fast reality that someone's going to use it as an excuse to start another war.

This is very good art because it provokes debate, but its also bad art because it paints an inaccurate picture. Nuclear power plants do not explode in a fiery mushroom cloud, that's just not how nuclear power works.

Chernobyl sent out radioactive smoke, the explosion was due to pressure in the reactor which ruptured the structure. Fukushima leaked radiation, no explosions. If you look into thorium reactors you will see that they are different again. In the Fukushima situation a thorium reactor would have simply stopped. The reason nuclear power seems to have focused on uranium seems to be that it can be weaponised and that its a bigger business.

I'm not suggesting that nuclear power is without risk at all. But people live with risk constantly and their perception of risk is often completely wrong. You're much less safe in a car than on a plane or train, but people drive to an airport and then get nervous about flying. If there is to be a debate about the pros and cons of each energy source, then it needs to be an informed debate. Otherwise there's no point having it.

I know, I updated the artist's description to make that clear. The explosion is just a mere attraction.

Nuclear plants will never explode in the way a nuclear bomb does. They don't work that way.
