Floating nuclear plant? Russians are building – World Environment – MSNBC.com

I’m not a fan of playing with the nuclear genie, and this is more dangerous than a land based nuclear plant as there is no containment structure.  A ship collision, aircraft strike, or attack could cause a release of nuclear material.  It’s not any more dangerous than a reactor on a ship or submarine, of which there are plenty in service (and a bunch in Servomorsk waiting to be buried, and a few at the bottom of the atlantic…), and the construction company knows what they are doing for the most part, but it’s still not worth the gamble.

 

My advice is the same as always-geothermal, solar, micro-hydro, or wind (wind would probably work well here).
