Earthquake Near Bushehr Nuclear Plants in Iran Kills 37

On Tuesday, a 6.1 magnitude earthquake hit Kaki, 80 km from Bushehr, the site of Iran’s nuclear power generators, which are due to go online in May. The Iranian government and the Russian contractor that built the plants both said that the nuclear plants were unaffected.

Aljazeera English reports:

Iran is an active seismic zone, another argument for solar panels and wind turbines.

    Yes, if only we could manufacture medical radioisotopes with wind farms… But seriously, this appears to be a missed opportunity for the US to offer humanitarian assistance and use this as a backdoor way to quietly re-open diplomatic relations.

    Well, I’m off on my unicorn pony…. look at the rainbow!
