Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler contributor LC Jackboot has lots to say about the science
. His credentials:
I spent 6 years in the US Navy nuclear program as both an operator, radiation and chemistry technician and instructor. Following this I entered the commercial nuclear field as a radiation safety officer for a year, then transferred into plant operations. I obtained an NRC Reactor Operator license and following the additional requisite training and experience an NRC Senior Reactor Operator license and served as a Control Room Supervisor. I decided to leave the shift-work of operations and transferred to a position as a Senior Emergency Planning Engineer. This allowed me to obtain a Master’s Level certification in Nuclear Engineering Technology. We developed, trained and tested implementation of the nuclear emergency plans for the state and local government as well as the company. I also had a sub-specialty in emergency planning for what is called Severe Accident Management, which is precisely what Japan is facing.
