“Radioactive Catastrophes” Possible at Home, Not Just in North Korea

This is Tommy Waller with the Secure The Grid Minute.  

Recently numerous Asian and European news outlets have reported the collapse of a North Korean tunnel system at the regime’s main nuclear test site, which has apparently killed hundreds of North Koreans.  Chinese and Japanese media fear a massive radioactive leak that could cause an international environmental disaster on the scale of Chernobyl or Fukushima. 

What most people fail to realize is that the prospects for such an environmental catastrophe are not limited to just North Korea.  A pro-longed blackout of the U.S. Electric Grid caused by a nuclear EMP attack could result in our own nuclear power plants suffering similar radioactive releases. 

Once the pumps running the cooling pools housing spent nuclear fuel rods fail and the water rapidly boils away, anything surrounding or downwind from these facilities is at risk.  Kim Jong-Un won’t likely stop his nuclear testing, but will we secure our grid?
