On the day de Pfeffel declares a new nuclear plant will be built at Trawsfynydd, here's an old map of the Chernobyl exclusion zone superimposed on northern Wales.

@abermart Is the reactor design prone to explosive meltdowns like the soviet-era kind? Or are they proposing something modern and safer?

@fitheach @abermart TBH that would probably be a good move: lower transmission losses, fantastic scope to use wastewater for district cooling (waterway thermal pollution being one of the few harmful outputs from even a modern design)

@seachaint A modern small(er) modular reactor. Supposedly safer, still produces deadly waste of course. Obviously the exclusion zone map is tongue in cheek, but I find it poignant and still relevant.
