Transcript just that, ideas — no real work has been done outside the lab, yet! The safety factor is constantly being addressed by scientists. Solutions like the Proposed Gas- Cooled Reactor system are being explored. U.S. government officials have even proposed to build a $3.6 billion Gas-Cooled plant in Idaho Falls, Idaho. According to the January 2, 1989 issue of Time magazine, the gas method operates on this principle: "Four seperate reactor units use fuel in such small quantities that it cannot meltdown under any circumstances." The reactors, inclosed underground, are surrounded by constant flow of helium gas that cools Even though, disasters like Three Mile Island and Chernobyl are ever present reminders of atomic energy's dangers. Proponents of Atomic energy still continue to list the numerous reasons for using nuclear over coal or other fossil fuels. They are also quick to point out the less pollutive aspect of nuclear energy. America's 109 operating nuclear plants have generated 339 billion-killowatt-hours of electricity. According to The U.S. Council for Energy Awareness, it would have taken 200 million short tons of coal, or 700 million barrels of oil, or 4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas to have generated the same amount of energy. The public's fear of exposure to radiation is SOUTH TEXAS PROJ ELECTRIC GENERATING STATION 10-MILE EPZ (PLUME EXPOSURE PATHWAY) The gray-shaded area in the center of the map is the plant site. There is no resident population within this area. Area 7 includes the community of Wadsworth. Area 12 includes all of the peninsula bounded by Matagorda Bay and Tres Palacios Bay and extending to the southwest outside the 10-mile EPZ. There is no resident population in the portion of Area 12 not shown on this map. Area 15 extends outside the 10-«ile EPZ and includes the community of Blessing. Area 16 extends outside the 10-mile EPZ and includes the community of Marltham. tilt: PROTECTIVE RESPONSE AREAS the reactor core. Thus there is no need for a back up safety system. Even if the pumps fail, the helium gas is cold enough that it will prevent the core from over heating. The grains of fuel in such a reactor are too small to reach a temperature higher than 3,000 degrees Fahrenheight. And they are encapsulated in ceramic spheres that can withsatnd 3,300 degree temperatures. However this system is still experimental, and the drawbacks are a greatly lowered output of electricity. 31 - 8 ■ Issues belayed by nuclear energy proponents with numbers like these: The average dosage of radiation per year, from natural scources, is 100 millirems (a measure of radiation exposure) per person. COSMIC RAYS 30 mill. AIR -5 mill. COLOR T.V. 1 mill. CIGARETTES(one pack per day)—-up to 2,000 mill. LIVING FIVE MILES FROM A NUCLEAR PLANT — .05 mill.
