i read an article in 2009 that the 20 year goal is 105 nuclear plants and complete dependence on nuclear power to get rid of all pollution, glad they changed their mind and only 30 or so, just hope they keep them away from earthquake prone areas, china had the worst earthquake in history in 1551 but most people here dont even know this.

 A little off topic, last year I had the brakes done on my car, turns out too many parts are made in China. The first time I hit the brakes hard my anti-lock brakes kicked in and I had no brakes at all. Turns out the discs and drums which were brand new were all out of round. The Chinese just do not seem to want to make good products or have quality control. I'm against nuke power plants. They are unsafe to start with. There is no small oops with nuke power and add Chinese quality controls in the mix. Yer just asking for it.

 We have nuke plants in Ont Canada, the original idea was that they could make electricity too cheap to even meter, yeah right , those things cost so much that we have now added to our electric bills ''debt reduction'' and our bills are through the roof. 

 Here's my idea, give every body a stationary bike with a small generator and plug it into the grid. You have to produce twice as much energy as you consume and you don't pay. Ok that won't work, but I live down wind from a nuke plant and I can use a glass of water like a flash light.

Haven't been following the news lately (except European football), but if what you say is accurate, I'm getting the hell outta here.  The Chinese can't effin build anything without it falling apart in 20 years or less. Nuclear reactors? God help us.

Not even a concern. I am confident that the Chinese have 5000 years experience building nuclear reactors. indecision

Watched a documentary China on 4 wheels anyway theres a guy who wanted a cleaner future for his child and wanted to change things and now  has created a whole city dedicated to solar power energy and is largest producer in China for solar panels. The place looks beautiful and watching it gives me hope for China and at least i know there's some people trying.

I worked a long time at nuclear power plant maintenance in the States.  It is late, and I have had a few beers, but I would be surprised if Chinese guys managed a nuclear power plant correctly.  I live in 2nd tier Hunan; everything is more or less broken. Everything.

An accident waiting to happen, if they cannot even build a relatively simple thing like a bridge  without it collapsing because a truck drove over it then what chance does a nuclear power station stand.

The Japanese were close. They just screwed up when they built their cooling towers at near ground level.

By the way. For the nuclear skeptics. Try to research how many people die each year from the effects of coal based electricity generation, this is all the way from the mines to the lung cancer from burning the stuff in the power plants. 

In Japan, since the tsunami knocked out Fukushima, more people will have died from the burning of fossil fuels than from the Fukushima disaster. Naturally more people will die in the years to come from any radiation they have been subjected to, but the fossil fuels will also continue to kill.

Chinese State Company are building, and mostly funding Hinckley Point in the U.K. with EDF  the largest Nuclear Power Company in the world from France.They are funding the project and building it to reach E.U. Standards which are the most demanding in the world.Maybe they just practise in the U.K now,see if it works,technology and world inovation has moved to the East now.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
