Greenpeace 2x Drones Nuke
#1
There's a heated debate in twitter about the impact of Greenpeace's droning the EDF facility in Lyon, France.

The assumption by nuclear apologists is that drones pose no risk because the integrity of the structure is so great. But, they are basing their claims on such things as a special made wall that an F4 crashed into to demonstrate the safety of the containment walls and assurances from the nuclear industry itself.

3. NRC assesses US nuclear safety during extreme events such as tornadoes and the missile-like projectiles that tornadoes can thrust into facilities. https://www.energy.gov/sites/prod/files/...ssiles.pdf
4. NRC systematically finds that multiple nuclear facilities are not minding security issues regarding "torpedo missiles"

Michael Shellenberger picks up the story and twists it to portray nuclear facilities as immune and/or safe from terrorist attacks. On page 4 of the article, https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelshel...b3a6495816, he cites various attempts by terrorists against nuclear facilities and employees. But, he completely missed the fact that Israel has twice bombed nuclear facilities (Syria & Iraq) and is directly implicated in the killing of multiple Iranian nuclear scientists. https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelshel...030c115877

That's truly shoddy journalism, Michael... oh, wait, I forgot - it isn't journalism, it's propaganda!
