    *ALL* French Nuclear reactors found to be unsafe

    (Reuters) - France needs to upgrade the protection of vital functions in all its nuclear reactors to avoid a disaster in the event of a natural calamity, the head of its nuclear safety agency said, adding there was no need to close any plants.

    After Japan's Fukushima disaster in March, France, along with other European countries, decided to carry out safety tests on 58 reactors and its next-generation reactor under construction in northwestern France.

    The aim was to test their capacity to resist flooding, earthquakes, power outages, failure of the cooling systems and operational management of accidents.

    IRSN, experts on radiation protection and nuclear safety, delivered a 500-page report to nuclear watchdog ASN on Thursday, which will in turn hand over its conclusions, based on the report, to the government at the start of 2012.

    Peer reviewers from other European countries will then study the findings until the end of June.

    "There is a need to add a layer to protect safety mechanisms in reactors that are vital for the protection of the reactor such as cooling functions and electric powering," Jacques Repussard, head of the IRSN, told Reuters in an interview.

    The good news is: there in France.

    (I wonder if France can get an EU grant for the upgrades?)

    Maybe this should be merged with the mysterious radiation over Europe thread?

    These are the same mob who spent decades "testing" nuclear bombs = blowing up atolls in the Pacific until international pressure put an end to them..

    They did not learn very much did they , only polluted the Pacific.

    Anybody remember the Rainbow Warrior ?

    ^ Yup, and Dave Langey made a deal to "imprison" the French cwnt perps. on a tropical island where they shagged for a while and spawned a baby, in return for NZ dumping a load of butter on the French.

    I was in Nelson at the time.

    Karma mate.
    Arrogant lot.

    French sneaked in to Auckland harbour , sunk the Rainbow Warrior commiting murder & tried to sneak off but got caught. So much for French terrorists.

    The French cowards awarded bravery medals to the perpetrators , a sad bunch of insecure arrogant people. Their economy will go the way of Greece & Italy , they won't have the money to upgrade their reactors ; just desserts if they blow up in their faces.

    The bastards built a concentration of nuke plants in NW France so that any radiation leaks are dispersed by the prevailing SW wind - across southern England.

    ^About the only talent the French have, holding a bloke's balls, a national pastime.

    Us Welsh knew that, so we nicked off with your women, they loved our balls.
    (Ref.Cavalli Svorza, Sykes, et al, Human Genome Project, Cambridge.)

    The French blokes were content to hold each other's balls.

    England has its own nuclear facilities, slowly being decommissioned.
    UK doesn't use French nuclear generated electricity.

    Germany is decomissioning it's nuclear reactors too.

    What is France going to do with its nuclear power?
    Threaten someone, UK, for example?

    Load of crap.
    The nuclear fallout would blow straight over to France on the N.West Atlantic wind from America.

    you must have missed the massive UK investments into COGEMA and EDF, the manufacturers and operators of those nuclear plants,

    you fucks will have no energy source soon, your oil fields in the North Sea are depleted, Iraq and Libya are not going to pay off when they turn Islamic states, and SA is USA bitch, not England

    so who is left ? that's right, the French

    now bent over bitches, we are going to show you again who the real masters of Europe are

    ^ Peter Sellers did a lot of damage to the image of the French, his movies should be banned from EU

    The PP series were hilarious though, very popular in France, strangely, probably because he had an English accent in the French version and looks so British while performing his clowneries

    Basically the French are laughing at a poor characterization of themselves

    well done

    and

    ^^^what do you mean, He's their top man. He probably did all the planning for acts of terrorism, which is probably why they are in that very exclusive club of countries who's government employees have been caught red handed carrying acts of terrorism.

    ^^peter sellers did nothing to damage frances image, french history actives that all on its own. he just played to the stereotypes europeans have of all frenchmen. the stereotype is not 100% accurate after all inspector cluso was not gay and you are

    UK's got the Falklands, possibly one of the largest oil fields currently being exploited.

    France is going to have to buy.

    fixed, only you English fucks have such simplistic view of the French, after we beat your ass so many times in the 100 years war, you guys could never get over it

    it's actually 100% inaccurate, there is actually one character in the series that is 100% French accurate, but he is minor and you rosbeef probably couldn't tell which one

    what the French sees when they see Cluzo is some ridiculous English man trying to stereotype the French in the worst possible way,

    it's fucking hilarious,

    like a second level of comedy that you English tards couldn't even see, basically an accurate parody of the English make a fool of themselves

    The French are actually big fans of English humor,
