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?

Hey, love the picture!  Hope you don't mind, but I've used this image in a small zombie game I've been creating in my free time.  I've linked back to you for credit.  Please let me know if this is okay!

@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.

I would love to live an apocalypse, I think it would be an experience to live even if I was fighting to find food and water, it would be cool if it was with someone, a friend.
