I've been sounding the horn about this for a while now, but nobody seems to listen.

Bottom line is, when TSHTF and our power grid goes down, all of our nuclear power plants will melt down.

Not a question of if, but when. And it aint gonna be pretty.

Won't they just take them offline?

A reactor can't just be taken off-line.

It takes a loooooooong time for the fuel to cool. If the supply of cooling water or the power supply (to pump the water) are interrupted during shut-down, the core melts down.

Eevn when reactors are in "cold shut-down" and "off-line", they have to have a supply of cooling water continuously circulated around them or else they melt down.

It's a very serious potential problem.
