The show and people in general forget one very important problem with the whole "after the blackout" doom scenario. When the grid goes down, every single nuclear reactor will simultaneous melt down within a matter of days. There will be no people 15 years after the blackout....

NOt true. They have enough back up power to power down. Only if the suffer damage (Fuku) would this be a problem.
 Quoting: Wash

yes but not enough to keep the spent fuel cool if the grid stays down...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5240732


There MUST be a backup plan.
They would not risk the US over an extended power outage.
 Quoting: Wash


No - the plan was to temporatily store fuel rods on site until the permenate storage facility was ready. 40 years later, no permmenate storage facility.

If you're worried about CME / EMP grid failure, dont live downwind of a Nuke plant.

(And your comment "THEY" would not risk this - "THEY" don't live downwind from nuke plants, so you are technicaly correct).
Please verify you're human:
