Arkansas Nuclear One Reactor and ExxonMobil Pipeline Both Suffer Major Accidents
The Arkansas Nuclear One nuclear reactor – operated by Entergy – suffered an accident yesterday which killed one and injured 8 workers.
The operator of the reactor is “trying to understand scope of damage”, and there may be structural problems at one of the units, after a 500 ton device fell on water lines and electrical equipment. Reactors are still using emergency generators.
Only 40 miles from the nuclear plant, Arkansas was hit with a major oil spill.
Why are nuclear and fossil fuel disasters happening at the same time? Because the accidents are caused by the exact same thing: greed.
