The warnings were stark and issued repeatedly as far back as 1972: If the cooling systems ever failed at a “Mark 1” nuclear reactor, the primary containment vessel surrounding the reactor would probably burst as the fuel rods inside overheated. Dangerous radiation would spew into the environment.

G.E. began making the Mark 1 boiling-water reactors in the 1960s, marketing them as cheaper and easier to build — in part because they used a comparatively smaller and less expensive containment structure.

TVNL Comment: Money. That is all what is important. NOTHING else matters. Risk all for money. Risk everyone's everything for money. Kill anything and everything for money. No consideration for the future of civilization. No consideration for the well being or best interest of the masses. Profits for investors are all that matters.
